That’s SailGP’s tagline? Then how are they any different from any other sailing in the world. The Opti Class could, (and should) say the same thing, except they’d get sued for a Trademark violation.
No, what these SGP clowns really should have said is “Powered by Money”, perhaps more specifically “Powered by Larry Ellison’s Money”. Nobody, not even me, could argue with that. Something about truth in advertising…
We grabbed onto this, not only for it’s ridiculousness, because of this Big Announcement:
Global sports league SailGP and Acronis®, a world leader in cyber protection, have partnered on an innovative technology solution that will bring fans closer to the high-speed, high-tech action.
Through an innovative voice recognition project, every conversation onboard the national teams’ F50 catamarans will be tracked, transcribed and translated in real-time. This will then be made available to broadcasters and viewers around the globe across a number of mediums and in a variety of languages, including French, Spanish, Japanese and Mandarin.
Does that mean that every “fuck” and “motherfucker” and “god dammit” and “shit” will be be tracked, transcribed and translated in real-time. And then be made available to broadcasters and viewers around the globe across a number of mediums and in a variety of languages, including French, Spanish, Japanese and Mandarin?”
How do you say “fuck” in Mandarin, anyway?
Or are all the sailors sworn not to swear, backed up by a signed agreement? Perhaps a 500 euro fine for all words or phrases containing the word “fuck”, and a 250 Euro fine for all comments referencing a body part or body function?
Just asking for a friend. – ed.
