New York courts have ruled on the appeal today

quote:

"Accordingly, the orders of the Supreme Court, New York County (Herman Cahn, J.), entered March 18, 2008 and May 13, 2008, which, inter alia, declared CNEV's challenge invalid and GGYC the Challenger of Record under the Deed of Gift, should be reversed, on the law, with costs, CNEV declared the Challenger of
Record, and, in keeping with the Deed of Gift's requirement that the defender be given at least 10 months' written notice to prepare for the challenge, the 10-month notice period should be tolled until service of a copy of this order."

All change again. What happens now?

Nobody knows. It's unclear whether BMWO can appeal the appeal (different sources say different things). The contract with Valencia to host the effort has recently been cancelled and there appear to be only 3 challengers with funding lined up at present (Alinghi, BMWO and ETNZ). So who knows what happens now.

What will happen next???????

 

 

It will get messy

It will get - even more - expensive

Those who got interested following the last edition will lose the will to live and give up

They will eventually get their act together and sail

Slowly the viewing public will regain their interest

An opportunity to build on interest gained will have been lost

 Congratulations to all involved

The whole thing stinks with 2 huge billionaire egos involved. The Swiss are behaving like the Yanks ie use any trick possible to prevent a Challenger from winning. It is not rocket science to see that a Defender is in a position to steal a march on a Challenger by setting the Rules to suit something they have been working on for months.

Americas Cup Racing is aping F1 ie totally stupid and losing all credibility. AC Teams should be from the Country of Origin ie no floating Kiwis!

Outside the Olympics, it's the most important event in sailing and has been for over a century. It's survived two world wars and the Great Depression. Team Origin shows signs of finally being a properly funded and managed British Challenge and an opportunity for the best small boat sailing country in the world to shine on the bigger boats.

And if that doesn't grab you, ever seen an IACC boat in action or even a 12M? Incredible boats.

So yes, as sailors, we should care.

Well said Stefan.

And I guess the cup will weather this storm as well. Might take a while to get things moving again as everyone has been distracted by the DOG match.

Cowes could be an interesting place to be next week with Alinghi, BMW Oracle and Origin all present in their cats.
