Yup I do, and I stand by it. If they were as good as you make out they would’ve hit the ground running not taking two fucking years and copying everybody else’s homework to get up to speed.
I know you don’t believe that’s the case because russel said it that they only got up to speed when they started using other people settings, but thems the facts

It’s a team of great sailors sailing against other teams of great sailors and if they truly were that one percent better than everybody else they wouldn’t have taken this long

Do you remember that time when you said that sail GP was for failures and utterly useless and wasn’t proper sailing yet here you are hitched up on the coat tails clinging on for glory

Anyway isn’t There in New Zealand for sale GP thread you can be wanking yourself silly over because unless unless ernesto has signed up Pete and Blair this thread has fuck all to do with them

While the Penascola and auckland teams fly back and forth to test, trial & ship their vessels to Barcelona.

Alinghi will just keep on sailing & sailing. & sailing...
Surely there will be no flying backwards and forwards to Auckland. They are a green team and that would just be ridiculous.

Maybe they will commute in the foiling speedster they wanted everyone to buy.

Yep, and I stand by it. Without the NZ team, the circuit had no credibility, so its no surprise Coutts threw the kitchen sink at the NZ to get them involved. NZ gave his circuit credibility.
As for taking 2 years... you realise this is only season 3 and the NZ team wasn't in season 1, so that would be 1 year, not 2.
It took them 1 year to go from newbies to dominant. Not bad anyones books.

Dominant? Nit won a title.
team oz, won both years..

even if NZ win the title this year they still won’t be half as successful as the dominant Aus team

To be fair gissie, it's doing its best

Haha when the Aussie team win the Americas Cup 4 times you can call them dominant.
You know they are different events? Like they have absolutely nothing to do with each other in terms of the boats, the teams, the personnel, the shore crew, the event management, the organisers, the sponsors venues, etc

Sure, Russell Coutts, Larry Ellison, the Emirates Team NZ sailing team, F50's developed from AC50's using trickle down tech from the AC. They're different in name only. Everything else is the same. Hell, SailGP has even started using AC footage and history to promote their event! The AC, was and always will be the pinnacle event. NZ have dominated the AC for the last two cycles, and SailGP for the last two events, soon to be a 3rd. Only a real hater would deny NZ's dominance.

You genuinely believe it’s the same crews/team event staff, sponsors?

NZ dominance? You might be a tad early on that given the event result 😂😂😂

Haha why? The best teams shone yesterday. And the Kiwi's shone. A drift off is like buying a lotto ticket and hoping it wins. So Kiwi dominance? Damn right.
