Not the whole boat, probably only some ideas here and there. LR is too much good looking.maybe swap the boat?
Have to agree mostly, Ellison is your typical rich asshole/winning is everything guy (remember leadgate?) Jimmy was just very sure of himself and even then if you have a look at the vids he is actually just a competitive sportsman. Now in this cycle, if you listen to his coms on the boat- he is a very cool pro (as they all are). For those of us that race, can you honestly say that you are like that with your crew at all times or if you crew that your skipper is? Jimmy is doing great, but for a slightly faster boat he would win this cup no sweat.Now I know most ETNZ supporters think JS is a cock sucker ofthe highest order, ...his dickhead behaviour in SF pretty much cemented him as such. But (and it’s a big BUT) it’s pretty clear now that it’s the team that has shaped him into the person he is today. In my opinion Oracle were a bunch of pricks, from the top all the way through to the boat cleaners...they thought they were bigger than the Cup and their behaviour was to act like wankers, basically from 2010 to 2017. To me LR have obviously instructed JS to act with dignity, grace and poise, to give praise where praise is due. To me it makes him rather likeable. He looks relaxed, he looks like he’s enjoying himself, he seems to be comfortable with his team and his own ability. I like this side of JS, long may it continue!
What say you Anarchists?
so you don't like him then? he heCompared side to side with bruni he is still a brash dick. Compared with NO, he still is.
It's a beauty and still has better high mode and maneuverability than TR. It was lovely how they smoked TR off on the first port tack. And TR couldn't smoke them off later in a similar situation on STB. But clearly lacks VMG. Also seems to be more in trouble at the very light end.Not the whole boat, probably only some ideas here and there. LR is too much good looking.
best looking boat and dont forget Pirelli tires with their awesome red and yellowNot the whole boat, probably only some ideas here and there. LR is too much good looking.
Bruni is one of our best sailors ever. Have a look at his career. Very good results on laser, 49er, and more recently with the moths, where, despite his age and being involved only in recent years, he became one of the top sailors in this class. He is also quite an expert match racer. A remarkable result I daresay. His age doesn't help but I think he will have another go. Maybe swapping roles with Sibello. Who knows. In this campaign, I liked him very much.Will Bruni stay on with the team? Please don’t shoot me, but I’d never heard of him before the Christmas Cup....is he inexperienced in AC, will he get better with another campaign? The LR team have been very impressive on and off the water!
Oracle....Have to agree mostly, Ellison is your typical rich asshole
DB harsh, you're not new here, are you?thats harsh
Berteli loves the song, romance, class.... the team in 2000 in AKLLuna Rossa means Red Moon, any italian friends explain the significance or meaning if any?
Deano, he gets a l;ot of grief but to be fair its really hard steering with that giant fucking silver spoon stuck in his gobDB harsh, you're not new here, are you?
And I said Dalts keeping his eyes on the ball, not his balls, BTW.
Whoever wins, if these two teams keep the same class they will still be ahead of the curve next AC, and your team is so close it's not funny.Not the whole boat, probably only some ideas here and there. LR is too much good looking.
He had nothing untill his folks passed.... a Kiwi bloke with a dream (and was andamned good accountant) who made it happened during a time when Sir Peter Blake could do no wrong).... cut him some slack mate, he's worked bloody hard to get where he isDeano, he gets a l;ot of grief but to be fair its really hard steering with that giant fucking silver spoon stuck in his gob
