America's Cup Boat Alinghi 5

The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) has appointed an International Jury for the 33rd America’s Cup which the BMW Oracle sailing team calls “highly qualified. ” The team stated that they “are pleased that it includes the members of the Expert Panel to which Justice Kornreich referred the five technical questions. The Panel’s recommendations were confirmed by Justice Kornreich in her recent decision. With the Jury’s appointment we expect that the remaining rules issues, including revision of the Société Nautique de Geneve (SNG)-ISAF agreement and the draft Notice of Race, will be quickly resolved consistent with the Court’s decisions and orders, and in accordance with normal – and fair – yacht racing rules and procedures. ”

Meanwhile, Ernesto Bertarelli is saying he would, “push for Ras al Khaimah to host the 34th staging of the America’s Cup if they defend their title next year.” Should Alinghi win the America’s Cup sailing trophy for a third time in the port city of Valencia – where the series will be held if the New York Supreme Court dismisses Alinghi’s appeal – then Ernesto Bertarelli and his team will again nominate the United Arab Emirates as host of their next defense. Read more about this in the The National.
