Tarnished Tom?

Tom
Schnackenberg is something of an America’s Cup legend, with a hitherto
untarnished reputation for integrity and gentlemanly conduct that survived
even after he joined ACM as coordinator for the AC90 rule development.

Following
Schnack’s appearance at Alinghi’s “Back to Sailing”
day, that unsullied reputation has been challenged on our AC
Anarchy
Forum , with anarchist Peter Huston likening him to “no
better than a greeter in a cheap casino.” and ro! saying “He
demeans himself by schilling for EB.”

Not
everyone agrees with them, so go and have your say, but maybe you should
reserve judgement until you’ve read Schnack answering various questions,
like – How can you build a 90 foot multihull in Switzerland and get to
the Med? Why have you appealed, when Ernesto said you wouldn’t? and
What will you do if the courts rule on a 2008 date? Our friends at BYM
have it for you to check
