    "Everyone agreed the result didn’t matter". BS. Think ETNZ can keep her on helm for the next AC? After all she just took two straight.

    The most entertaining races I've ever seen. Trying to imagine what the next AC would be like if the same boats were specified. How much more is in these boats and teams given the time. Amazing.

    They must have been working their tails off testing in the shed to have had the confidence to fly first day out. Fantastic to see them on the water.

    Mr Peyron calm and relaxed as usual. I have a feeling he won't be able to suppress one major grin when the boat finally gets in the water.

    Firing a trial balloon? Sponsors will be pleased as punch if he sends off the AC45 without the crew to give it the best chance of a win.

    :-) As long as your part is up to date every day before you leave it's all good. More than a few 18 hour days. Expiration date on birth certificates drops to 50 years if you stay in too long.
