    Hamilton Island Yacht Club from Queensland, Australia sounds like the next Challenger of Record.

    So, so sad. 9/11 for s***s sake? The "story" isnt even the story. Read the comments... sheesh.

    This mysterious "SAS" device is sounding more and more like it came from the imagination of a few wanker Commentators on TV in NZ. Its more of a digital gyro than anything else it seems.

    It'll be intresting to see how this all plays out over the next few months.

    Like i said before, I’m truly surprised about how ignorant a good portion of the NZ fan base is on the rules and regs of this race series.

    Seriously though, as much as I like Ben, I have a tendency to believe the boat mechanics were completely out if sorts...as well as the crew but to a lesser level. Their tacks and gybes were ghastly, from a basic sailing level but I attribute that to a 4 month layoff. Once Oracle worked out the boat, it was over, obviously, not to take anything from your boy Ben. But the combination of Spithill, Ainslie and Slingsby as a Afterguard...was DEADLY.

    Yes I agree...........certainly a combination that worked well.
