Now that the LV-AC will be in the USA do you think NBC Sports will step up and show it?

Lots of things happen in the US that aren't televised. It's all about ratings (aka money).

Finally, in my backyard. Been to San Diego (92), New Zealand (00) and San Francisco (13). Too bad it is just a weekend; and of course, in the Windy City, where the only thing that blows are politicians, it will be a crap shoot if there is good foiling wind or not. At that time of season and the weather pattern for the last 5+ years, it is probably 50/50 SE at 13 knots. But 18-20 out of the N-NE and then move the course outside of the breakwall and that would be really cool.

Here nor there, it's nice to have a opportunity to watch without a cut-up highlight show that makes you wonder what the hell happened in the 5-10 minutes they keep cutting out. Nothing like cramming four races into 40-42 minutes of coverage. Could they have had any more commercials?

The ACWS continues in Bermuda on October 16-18. "Two 25 minute races are scheduled per day to fit with 90 minutes for a TV show produced by Americas Cup TV (ACTV). It will be broadcast globally."

In the USA NBS Sports Network has their show scheduled for Sunday, October 18 at 2:00 pm for 90 minutes. Maybe this time we will get to see the whole thing.

The Sunday afternoon TV broadcast will begin just a few minutes after the last race has ended. That's nearly live!

Wow, not only is that graphics "package" extremely unattractive, it shows that zero effort went into its design. It's like someone copied the LR logo, pasted it onto the wing, and just pitched it!

Well...as a graphics guy - they're kinda stuck with that oval being part of the logo and there isn't THAT much you can do with it other than surround it with some swooshes and swipes. It might just be only a minimal, cost effective, graphics package on a boat that is expected to be pushed to the point that it gets damaged and/or has a second round of modifications already planned. I thought the other things Land Rover has done on the boats looked pretty sharp.

^^ What he said. Big companies have all sort of restrictions on the use of their logos to protect the value of the branding. Having said that rotate it another 70 degrees, triple the size and have it span the hull, jib and wing.

This boat is development and will be replaced. Take a look at that front beam, it would be better describe as a wing, or maybe "beam-a-wing"

I'm not buying that, and not just because I've had sponsors (yes, mine were just placed on as plain logos, so I realize that there is some amount of pot and kettle here). But, looking at the other recent teams, and the fact that the LR name is used on the boat without the oval, they could have done something (anything) to make that look better.

The Land Rover name maybe on the hull without the oval, but it is corporate (bonnet) font!!! He who pays the bills calls the shots.

I saw that a couple of months ago - it should be no surprise that one of the guys running the race is in marketing. That's pretty smart.

They should call out the Frenchies... This is their sort of thing.

The Texel champs, too!

Texel... please! That's a freaking beach party with a little sailing thrown in to break up the day. The archipelago boys and girls are who they want, they want people that are totally into pain and misery.
