I think that was the first query. This is the second that was not recieved in time but was answered anyway. http://noticeboard.americascup.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/PI_52.pdf

[Dean Barker and Team New Zealand receive a warm welcome back to Auckland

good! They've got nothing to be ashamed of. They worked hard and put up one heck of a regatta

Why can't I reach sail-world.com

Seems that its DNS entry is messed up.

It's middle of the night there (I'm guessing) and they do there updates/maintenance/whatever . . .

Okay, so what's the best way to position yourself to get on one of the next AC teams?

Become a bad-az match racer? (which most likely would be monos)
Become a rowing champion?
Train on a trampoline?
Become a superb computer geek?
Collect a few olympic sailing medals?


I'd hope that the AC Youth thing would be a good "Farm League" for people to get picked from

To get to the AC Youth series, where would you position yourself?

You should win your Nationals on an Opti.

Pretty much all of the above. Add to that, "Having good connections."

But of you're thinking about AC35, you're already too late. The vast majority of people that will be involved with AC35, were already involved with AC34, at least in some role. There's not a whole lot of turnover.

There are quite a few billionaires on those teams as well, seems like a much easier way than through those damn Olympics.

Money can't buy you love. But it will buy a ride on an AC boat.

They also mentioned the World Series and doing fly-by's in front of the Sydney Opera House! At 14-17 seconds into this video you can see the Opera House in the background, left of the big bridge. BTW, they do walking tours over the top arch of that bridge! (you have to pay to go over the top)

I'm guessing that would only be with the World Series boats, unless they win the AC and then 6 years from now they do it in SYD Harbor. I'm pretty sure Larry E. is going to hold AC 35 in SFO Bay again.

If they do an ACWS in Sydney we're totally going to go. Sydney harbor reminded me a lot of San Francisco bay just a bit smaller. It'd be a great place to have an ACWS with TONS of park area right on the harbor to watch from.

Can you imagine a fleet race of foiling AC45s?

That would certainly help the teams in the LV and be awesome to watch.


I'm boatless.

Ben and Iain celebrate in their own private way.

"Sir Ben Ainslie could have enjoyed the moment he had dreamt of all his life, being a major player in a successful America’s Cup project, but while the drinks were flying and backs understandably slapped after “Team Oracle USA” had come back from a supposedly unassailable 8-1 down to beat “Emirates New Zealand” 9-8, Ainslie sat with Percy to honour their lost friend."
