Your welcome cglazier, it’s been a lot of fun. I wonder who will become the next Challenger of Record and when they will do it, and what the specifications the New Zealand team will pick for the boats and the location next time.

Brits as challenger and AC75s sticking around it seems. Good for foil development. If you haven't seen the new Armstrong 1125, to my eye it looks pretty similar to the foils the Kiwis were on.

If you watch the interview Armie did with Real he reveals he has preproduction foils designed with ETNZ software with an AR of 13 and that he can't say anymore.

Great link on details- thanks! They will decide location within 6 months. The British team must have had their challenge ready to be filed to do it this quick. I wonder if their is any advantage to being the challenger of record?

I’m glad to hear they are using the AC75’s again since they’re exciting to watch. I wonder if the wind speed limit will be higher next time.
