Expect plenty of fireworks between ‘bash ’em Ben’ and the Kiwi biker gang when the AC Challenger Playoffs begins in earnest today.  20 knots of breeze and 40+ knots of boat speed are on call if you can manage to watch an event that isn’t even broadcast on television in North America.  Fortunately, the modern internet has ways of making things free and easy even when event owners don’t want them to be; follow along the Live Racing Thread for updates, and go here to find out how to watch it all live.

UPDATE: After losing the start to Burling, Ben Ainslie Racing has retired from the opening race with the first major breakdown of the AC.  Paul Campbell-James said ‘the camber arm is broken’ on the race audio feed – a custom part that’s not easily replaced, and potentially costing the British team not just the point for the race they DNF’d, but another point for the second race scheduled for today.  With two more GBR vs. NZ races scheduled for tomorrow, Ben’s 35th America’s Cup hopes are now down to the skill of his engineers and shore team.

Emirates Team New Zealand went into rebuilding mode over the last cycle, tapping the very best of their high speed sailors in the barely-out-of-nappies youngsters Pete Burling and Blair Tuke.  Managing the new energy these kids bring aboard is a guy who’s very much a kid himself, despite his age and experience – Glenn Ashby.

The three sat down with Kiwi sports talk host (and longtime Dalts pal) Tony Veitch in a half-hour update on all things ETNZ and 49er Olympic team; Go to the 32nd page of the ETNZ thread in America’s Cup Anarchy to talk shit about it.

Just as Emirates Team New Zealand’s funding looks assured, the shitstorm about Dean’s departure is casting a long black cloud over the team.  Barker threatening to ‘tell all’, according to a herald source, if he gets the boot?  Lawyers on retainer?  Shit’s getting serious in Kiwi if the NZ sports media are to be believed.

Meanwhile, in the best-named radio segment since the call-in ‘Do You Know Where Your Mom’s Vibrator Is?’, two sporty dudes debate whether Team New Zealand is ‘Penis Or Genius.’  Hilarious.

As the 35th America’s Cup “Deadline Day” hit us here in the US,  The Royal NZ Yacht Squadron became the first team to formally announce that it ponied up the millions required for a challenge to Golden Gate Yacht Club, and that Emirates Team NZ would be their representatives. “We look forward to working with the other teams to create a great event. [emphasis ours]”.  

The solo Kiwi news release, along with Dalton’s emphasis on ‘working with the other teams’ tells us that Russell and Grant definitely haven’t kissed and made up; you can expect a more coordinated flurry of news today as ‘Russell’s Four” – the teams that pledged their lukewarm support to Coutts and the Cup a couple of weeks ago – are likely to have worked with AC AlphaWhat on a distribution schedule.  In other words, when the Cup is ready to tell you who challenged and who is the new Challenger of Record, they’ll fucking tell you, you impatient twat!

Meanwhile, RadioSport NZ’s D’arcy Waldegrave grabbed Mr. Clean for a morning drive time chat about the challenges the Kiwis face on “The Sauce”, also known as “New Zealand’s Loosest Sports Radio Show“.  Listen to it above.
