"We work closely with city councils, New Zealand Government, Government of Victoria, Hong Kong Government"

Victoria government not going great at the tic and I see the Chinese are about to side fuck Hong Kong.

This is odd, even by AC standards. 

MBIE are the folks who pay the bills right? So it likely involves money. My wild guess is that someone has been meddling with accusations of dodgy dealings with the goal of either:

  • reducing the funding available for the AC event; or
  • reducing the funding available for ETNZ.

The Europe angle doesn't really add much clarity, as the info could have come back via LR (as COR) or Emirates (yes, despite the name the sponsorship money actually comes out of Europe).

or someone is leaking info about the state of ACE organisation, any studies done on the cost benefits of the current viability of the event (pre/post covid)

Anyone know Calder or Mayo? Sad to see HK getting fucked. Lots of drama to come out of there.......
Yes, Met them last year for something non-related, also no reply just yet.

From teams to superyacht crews, they were off the charts busy before COVID, I would tread carefully to assume a non-reply means anything else other than your email is at the bottom of a deep folder.  If they are clean, this would not be helping the event so best to hold judgement.

I was surprised to hear Dalts say that the "informants" lawyered up pretty promptly when confronted, something which a "high-profile" contractor would be very savvy about. The motives for the allegations may well be that the contractor has not been allowed to do as they please - they couldn't go to ETNZ hierachy, so they tried to leverage their government contacts to go behind ETNZ's back directly to MBIE. This feels like some corporate greedy power grab for more say in ACE Ltd which has backfired.

Good job Dalts!!

I withhold judgement until further info is available.

If its those guys it seems hard to believe they'd be willingly providing false/secret info given the obvious severe consequences to their business if proven.

A loose lipped but not malicious individual or someone who legit feels they're whistle-blowing logically seems more likely.

On the other hand I will be happy to see them go down the gurgler if its proven.
