down goes oracle!

Inside sources just confirmed the AC International Jury has slapped Oracle Racing with a two-point penalty for their illegal AC45 modifications.

That means they start the America’s Cup this weekend – a first to 9 match – on minus 2 points.  More to follow, including, we expect, penalties for individual sailors and shore crew, or just fervently refresh the Jury thread.

DECISIONS ON PENALTIES

Bryce Ruthenberg is excluded from further participation in any role in the 34th America’s Cup.

Andrew Walker is excluded from further participation in any role in the 34th America’s Cup. RRSAC rule 69.1© requires the Jury to inform his National Authority (Yachting New Zealand) and the International Sailing Federation, which bodies may impose further penalties.

Kyle Langford In light of his age and inexperience in an America’s Cup environment, the fact that he had no involvement in the work done and his truthfulness during the hearing, together with his sincere efforts to acquaint himself with the Class Rules since the matter came to light, Kyle Langford is warned to use his best endeavours not to be involved with any activity that may be in breach of a rule in the future. The Jury is not required to make a report to any federation.

Matt Mitchell is excluded from sailing on a Yacht competing in the Match for the 34th America’s Cup until 4 races have been completed.
