A lot of BS floating around in here.

What the Fck is taking them so long to announce the COR?

OK, NZ you are the care takers of the Cup for another round.... DO NOT FCK IT UP by playing games for profit.  It has been in existence for much longer than you have been a country.  You have the responsibility and obligation to treat it with respect and do what is best for the Cup.

You do what you have to to win. Ben isn't a quitter. Its never okay to just give up when things don't favour you.
The only time when Ben actually thought about quitting Sailing altogether was when one of his good friends Andrew Simpson died in that tragic accident on May 9th 2013. Why? Because he was training with OTUSA's Boat 1 and saw this accident unravel before his very own eyes. Imagine how shocked you're gonna seeing this happening LIVE. That would throw almost everyone a little bit overboard.

Dude you need to take a few days off.  They won on Wednesday. Today’s Friday. They need a few days to, you know, discuss shit.

They will announce when they are ready to announce it. A little bit more patience is required here. I mean OTUSA won on Sept. 25th 2013 and didn't announce the HIYC until October 1st which was 6 Days after their victory.

WOW, check this out:

  • A new Crew Nationality Rule will require 100% of the race crew for each competitor to either be a passport holder of the country the team’s yacht club as at 19 March 2021 or to have been physically present in that country (or, acting on behalf of such yacht club in Auckland, the venue of the AC36 Events) for two of the previous three years prior to 18 March 2021. As an exception to this requirement, there will be a discretionary provision allowing a quota of non-nationals on the race crew for competitors from “Emerging Nations”.

Another bullshit clause, the AC is a design race not a sailor one. I am more interested to know who Guillaume Verdier will be working for.
