AC

Final?

So
here is the new design rule for the
next AC, as put forth by the ACM. There is just one catch – the GGYC needs
to drop its suit for the whole thing to move forward. The following seems
to indicate that they will, yes?“The Golden Gate Yacht Club will agree
to comprehensive new compromises to get the America’s Cup back on track
for Valencia in 2009 if the defender will disclose its rule for the boats’
design.”

But things at this end of the game are rarely straightforward and it remains
to be seen what other, bright and shiny new levels of bullshit will be coming
forth. This is the America’s Cup, right? What would it be without it?
