GGYC Out!

A New York appeals court has declared that a Spanish yacht club, Club
Nautico Espanol de Vela, is the challenger of record for the next America’s
Cup, a decision that removes GGYC from that position.

The state Supreme Court’s Appellate Division ruled 3-2 Tuesday that
Club Nautico Espanol de Vela should be the challenger of record, which
gives it the right to negotiate terms of the next competition with the
current Cup holder, Alinghi of Switzerland. This decision reverses a
lower-court ruling that made the Golden Gate Yacht Club of San Francisco
the challenger.

The appeals court also gave CNEV 10 months to prepare for the race,
starting when it receives a copy of the appellate ruling. Here’s the
