Regardless of whether the CouttsVision idea of an ultra-luxury America’s Cup is for you, no one can deny that, from a competitor standpoint, AC35 is already a bigger success than AC34.  Count ‘em: Australia and Big Ben Racing on top of returning challengers Artemis, Luna Rossa, and ETNZ makes 5 strong teams;  As long Pope Paul  and JuanK stay out of the fray , they might even all make it to the starting line of what we used to call the Louis Vuitton Cup!

Above you’ll find two very different approaches to a launch announcement; one from the staid Royals (who confirmed yesterday that they’ve been ‘in talks’ with F-1 super-designer Adrian Newey OBE) and the other from the stylish Italians, who finally confirm what we’ve been telling you sneakily for the past 10 weeks; OG Detroit Anarchist and two-time Moth World Champion Bora Gulari becomes the first Detroit rocker in the AC for a long, long time.

Ben’s team roster details are here, and the Luna Rossa launch document – filled with interesting historical facts and an already big staff of designers, builders, and sailors, is here.

Title inspiration thanks to Pope Paul’s twin brother.
