New Zealanders[edit]

"Alinghi alone had 4 New Zealanders as crew"

I thought it was 6, Coutts inclusive.
There were 8 in total on the team, not sure about the actual crew. Dramatic 01:44 13 March 2003 (UTC)

Contested deletion Category talk:Yachting races[edit]

You should know about this and comment. One of our editors has systematically depopulated it, and thinks that is a good reason to delete it. 7&6=thirteen () 12:11, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. I have added a short comment contesting deletion.79.23.0.163 (talk) 01:37, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Challengers table[edit]

Of course, "1851 Isle of Wight United Kingdom Royal Yacht Squadron 8 cutters and 7 schooners, runner-up Aurora United States New York Yacht Club John Cox Stevens syndicate, America 0–1" should not be in this list. The America's Cup didn't exist at that time, the fact that the cup that became the Ould Mug was sailed for not withstanding. Mysha (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 11:51, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

helm vs steer[edit]

In this edit [[1]] helmed was changed to steered. This may be a regional or local difference in meaning but to me helm is a much more appropriate word than steer in this context the oed seems to agree with me. To list one of many oed examples given - ‘Its decks crowded with the addition of the rescued resort employees, Mackenzie helmed the craft toward the Hawaiian Islands.’ [[2]] Andrewgprout (talk) 22:51, 4 November 2016 (UTC)
