Hi all.

I just wanted to start a thread to ask others where they go for America's Cup news? I've found that many of the previously excellent websites are not updating, and are being chosen by google anyway.

I found americascupmagazine.com which is being updated daily (or close to it).

Anyone else know of any good sites?

I subscribe to Scuttlebutt (USA version), which is a daily sailing email newsletter, and it has a good deal more on the AC than I'm interested in reading.

Do you know if there's much difference between the
USA and Europe versions?

It is a completely different editorial team and most of the content is different. I subscribed to the European edition when it first launched 3-4 years ago but cancelled my subscription after a few weeks. It was very dry and lacked the quirky character which makes the USA version such an enjoyable read. Also the European version had a policy of only covering International classes, which meant it didn't cover most of what I was interested in, and the really big international events are in the USA version anyway. I admit I haven't read it lately and I may be out of date.
