    This is good! I want to see these 45's optimally raced and presented, without the distraction of the preposterously extravagant 72's. The 45's are more than enough boat to test the idea of drawing much bigger audiences to the sport.

    This may well be a red herring...

    About time Moose surfaced after his experience with Origin, rather see him out sailing though!

    Beach entries, delayed AC72... but it's all going fine??? Best thing that ever happened to the Cup. Looking like a farce! Complete joke is the AC34...

    Judging by a photo of the yacht at the moment it's going to need a lot beer. The bulb just came off.

    Like your style 381394

    or you could have a multihull. . .

    Why all the engineering? The same righting moment could be achieved by a few crates of beer on a transverse sliding track. A fading breeze could be compensated for by an increased thirst. Just a thought.

    What the hell is a choke vortex?!

    James, very interested to find out what will happen here, talk over with a few mates over a beer or 5 on the weekend, they all kind of thought that with Mascalzone Latino dropping out might pave the way for a few more to 'drop out', but everyone was a bit confused as to what will happen now, especially who will take over the record and how this will have an effect on the cup as it is. I doubt there will be much change in the format now though!

    are there not two hulls missing?

    Most likely candidate is surely Artemis. If I bump into Bob Fisher next week I'll ask the wise one if there is any precident, but I don't think there is

    Bad times for the Cup and very bad time for Mascalzone Latino, but where does this leave the Cup? Surely now as there is no Challenger of Record this Cup cycle is now void? Will be interesting to find out what the plan is now from Oracle Racing. Who is going to step forward as the next Challenger? Surely Larry would of been doing anything possible to stop this happening, maybe his pockets are not as deep as we think?

    The only English boat there was 'Illegal Immigrant' a qtr tonner sailed by Willy McNeill which won class 5.

    No footage from other classes?

    "We hope ISAF realise there is no need for an evaluation event" . . . nice, fair, consultative, transparent, not-at-all-dodgy. Actually, the IOC will probably love the idea. Just make sure you wrap your 'gifts' nicely when you hand them over.
