July 2021


Crikey, could the Team GBR hegemony of the Finn class finally be at an end… just before the Tokyo Games? When six-time Gold Cup winner Ben Ainslie retired his position was immediately filled by Giles Scott (four Gold Cups). But after a long break for the 2021 America’s Cup Scott finished only ninth at the 2021 event –where Andy Maloney took the prize ahead of Joan Cardona (ESP) and Kiwi defending champion Josh Junior. If Tokyo happens, this will get interesting
 Why they won
‘His Cup runneth over’ – Blue Robinson; ‘Fantastic result and selfless collaboration with Josh even after Josh got the nod for Tokyo’ – Mike Quilter; ‘ Heck of a result!’ – Michael Blackburn; ‘Been an amazing trip working with your mum and supporting your long journey’ – Andrea Osborne; ‘Sadly not selected for Tokyo but both Kiwis are in a league of their own’ – Greg Solomons; ‘Andy and JJ, great role models, teamwork makes the dream work!’ – Jim Turner.
