Don’t believe there is yet. Racing to take place in Sydney Harbour between fort Denison and the heads depending on wind direction. 
Given the amount of modifications that have supposedly been made to existing boats, as well as the new boats that are supposedly under construction, as well as the fact that most, if not all of the sailors involved in this will have never sailed an AC50 before, let alone raced one in anger, this could turn out to be potentially disastrous. They have 4 months at the most to get comfortable with those things, and there doesn't appear to be any boats on the water yet. Launching a brand new boat with a brand new team to compete at a venue the boats were never designed to compete at, and only giving the teams 4 months to learn how to use the equipment seems pretty foolish.

Just the messager Stu! Word is racing is being run by RSYS maybe worth having a chat to them!

ooooo ok then. Insult me all you want. But you still haven't proved anything
So you’re still going to blindly stand by your stance that the AC50’s won’t get reused in a new circuit?  Yes or no. (This is your chance to say, oops, I was wrong)
