Er, it's an Australian owned, managed and supervised boatyard, especially this project. I doubt the yard is to blame in any way at all. Mark Evans runs a tight shipIt‘s stupid enough that the Kiwizi ”designers” didn’t foresee this through common math. They failed spectacularly and should all be fired forthwith. (When you can’t even blame Chinese manufacturing you know you’re in trouble.)
That was what it was originally, before what is now World Sailing basically claimed licensing ownership of the title "international" with regard to sailboat classes. The "I" was dropped from the ACC rule title after the 1992 AC, if I recall correctly.I think it was IACC.

But I get your point
2000 & 2003 both (according to official NZ Government reports) produced a benefit to the NZ economy of around NZ$1/2 Billion. If Barcelona makes a bundle out of AC37 it would serve NZ Government right.Magic money tree been found has it? They couldn’t afford it this time, what makes you think they can afford it any other time?
There was an AC45 too, but you make a very good point. I don't think whoever came up with the concept thought they would still be involved in 2034ishSo, AC72 was a boat. AC50 was a boat. AC75 is a boat. Now AC40 is a boat. And AC36 was an event. AC37 is a planned event. What do we do when we are going to have the 40th America's Cup?
Uh... Yeah, for the boats. But they already have the AC40. It's not like they will be able to use metric time for the event name... The question rhetorical. I think they will just use the year. But then they have to know the year before they have a name for it. Or they will just magically forget the boat.They just need to go metric like J/Boats.
Oy, knobhead, stop posting stuff on the internet that is WRONG!Ironicly, if this had happened a week or two ago, they could have roled out Te Kahu, or started modifying their second AC40. But now they have already made this an LEQ12 they can't now use a new platform.
So I think ETNZ can mount their banana foil and new wheel on their second AC40. The wheel isn't an LEQ12 component which number is limited, and the banana foil has already been taken from their quota. Their first AC$) hull surface hasn't counted against their quota as it was mounted on (part of?) a class legal AC40) hull.My understanding too, only one LEQ12 skin allowed. AM could use something else, ETNZ cannot. Not aware of any clause in the rules for breakages, which always seemed a bit risky given the mast limitation. Not really in the interest of COR to agree to such a change at the moment. Though they might
