Also interesting to see footage of Coutts ramming a start boat in a Stewart 34. 

And to learn that in 92 Rod Davis was sacked as helmsman, and Coutts then took over and lost his first/only 2 races on the helm.

Cayard did a Volvo race around 12 years ago. Skippered Pirates of the Caribbean. Did very well in the in-port races. Was in Wellington for the 24 hour pit stop.

He was in Bermuda for AC 35. I was just listening to him commentate on the challenger final last night. I’m watching it all over again to make the thrill last longer. 
 

the coverage was definitely better there.

Wonder if they wil do a show of Dalts loosing the cup here and NZ boat problems(that sinking feeling)and what Dalts had to do to get the cup home again.and how he let oracle back to win??

In the KZ7 challenge final race against Dirty Den where D hit the mark,was he paid off or just a moment of lack of concentration??with all those eyes onboard has had me wondering for yrs.

May want to have a rethink of your statement above HT, pretty sure Dalts got onboard after the 2003 campaign.

Thanks,Yep he came onboard in 2003,.Hard to find who was in the leadership board of the 2003 campain but did find it.

Therefore, those responsible for the management structure - Peter Menzies, Ralph Norris, John Risley and Kevin Roberts (as directors), Dean Barker (sailing) Ross Blackman (administration) and Tom Schnackenberg (boat design) - have collectively and individually accepted responsibility for the team's performance.
