While many are wondering who will win the AC, we’re wondering if the event will even take place. From GGYC…
Valencia, January 19, 2010 – Once again the Defender has walked
away from the opportunity to resolve the litigation and all other issues
surrounding the 33rd America’s Cup, and to assure a clean and fair
competition on the water.
Last Wednesday we signed the Singapore Agreement, and the
governing body of our sport, ISAF, witnessed it. The only signature
missing was that of the Defender, SNG/Alinghi.
On Sunday GGYC offered the Defender another chance to sign the
Agreement, which had been drafted by Alinghi’s rules advisor.
Regrettably, last night the Defender again turned their backs on the
Agreement, and the Cup’s preeminent principle – mutual consent.
