well I think alot of Bear of Britain crew will be picked to sail on this challenge,

seeing as the old boats are in storage next to the Bear setup, im sure they will be used as training boat

AC is a development class. By this time, the existing boats only have value as training boats.

I wonder what Peter Harrison has to say about all of this. He ownes the boats.

He was desperate for sponsors and nobody was willing to stump up the cash. Now, six months later, somone else has decided to give it a go. Where were you, Sir Keith?

water, water, everywhere...
but not a drop to drink

He was in negotiation with PH, but got offered the Olympic gig and went for that instead...
