62ft wing sail cats, 25% of your crew to be nationals of the country you sail for, racing from 2015/2016 in AC45s to contribute to points to go to the AC final, series of races in 2017 in AC62's also contributes, each nation that enters will get a series in the AC62's in their country if they want it...

Sounds familiar. Didn't that work out well last time - not!

 

Oracle going to cheat to win the AC45 circuit again?

can anyone remember why Ellison was so wound up at Berterelli?

 

I recall it was partly to do with them racing in the challenger series?

 

I think the protocol, and the plans for the events are a joke.

Why use non foiling AC45s?

Why do the results matter?

Why does defender get to race with challengers?

Why do they get 2 boats?

Way to go Oracle, continue the tradition of grossly slanting the rules in the defenders favour.

 

I repeat, JOKE

So - how many challengers can be expected? is it worthwhile for NZ to be in?

 

We'll find out soon...

The entry period is open from June 9th to August 8th 2014.
