    Well it's quickly turning into The Larry Cup. Have fun circling the buoys with just you and your paid-for poodle Vincenzo…
    Way to F@#% things up Russell et al.
    I would like to repeat what I stated almost two years ago "you think Ernesto is so bad, wait til Larry, Russell & Tom get their hands on that Cup…"

    This doesn't surprise anybody, does it? First of all, UITG does not really exist, the head of the campaing, Jochen Schümann, works now for the French-German team All4One, which will be the most likely challengers from Germany, due to the massive financial backing of Audi.

    A second reason for not-entering the 34th AC is the new racing format: It's all about technology and boatspeed, and in these two fields, BMW-O is almost uncatchable due to their advances from AC 33. The chances of the challenger, to win the cup by an outstanding tactical performance is rather limited in contrast to other events before the multihull-dragracing age – and so is the interest of potential sponsors.

    Ok losers, since you have all given up and talk yourselves into the fact they cannot be beaten give me the $$ and I will show you how it is done.

    This cup is very open to anyone that has the balls to give it a go.

    You just have to get your head out of the slow ass mono world we all live in.
    It's not hard and a shit load more fun.

    Make no mistake, this sham has nothing to do with the global economy. In monohulls Team Germany, Origin, Emirates TNZ, Artemis, Synergy & Mascalzone Latino were all certain to show up. Now it is down to ML, ETNZ and maybe Artemis & Synergy. The French teams have little or no chance of getting there. A 2 or 3 boat regatta? Can’t wait!!
