Syd Fisher agreed -fiercely criticized by the competition -a collaboration with oneAuatralia. They complained, that with AUS -29 a third instead of the allowed 2 new boats was available for oneAustralia for testing purposes. Sydney 95 was designed by the same consortium as AUS 31 and 35. The Team Fisher's benefited from the months training with the Australian partner. AUS 29, was the heaviest of all strong winds constructions in the LVC, but had to sail almost all races in light winds. They won more victories than in any Cup since 1983 . With the ratio 5 wins against 19 losses they landed still in last place of the LVC 95. The reason was that victories were assessed at the beginning of the races with less points than in later rounds.
