    3-5 MUSD är ju fortfarande hiskeligt mycket deg, men om har menar det här på ett seriöst sätt, så skulle ju den senaste AC-soppan leda till något mycket bättre. Kul!

    30-40M SEK Låter som ett lockpris… Man skall bygga två båtar, ett par hundra segel, besättning, shorecrew, media, logistik mm. Ericsson lär ha haft en budget på 2-300M SEK under senaste VOR!

    Där tog utvecklingen inom seglingen slut… Nu är det bara Fransoserna som vanligt som driver utvecklingen :-(

    Larry Ellison ?
    Är det inte en så’n där dataspelsnörd ?
    Har vi inte sett tillräckligt med sån’a redan som förstört seglingen med sina affärsplaner, TV och annan skit ?
    Varför skall vi bry oss om dom ?

    Paul Cayard Talks About Possible America’s Cup 34 Plans
    Louis Vuitton Trophy Could use First Four New Cup Yachts in 2012,
    Data shared among teams,
    Next America’s Cup in 2014

    March 24, 2010

    Paul Cayard, America’s Cup sailor and President of the World Sailing Team Association (WSTA), spoke to a standing-room-only crowd Wednesday night at Ullman Sails in Costa Mesa, CA, talking about his sailing career and his recent past at the Louis Vuitton Trophy Auckland. In particular he provided some details under consideration for the path to the next America’s Cup and the new America’s Cup class design. Here’s a sample of what Cayard had to say about the possible future of the America’s Cup:

    “Larry Ellison is a founding member of the WSTA and believes in the concept. I’ve had some meetings, and what I can say is [BMWOR] see the Louis Vuitton Trophy and the events being an integral part of the next America’s Cup. What that means exactly is yet to be determined, of course, but it might be something like this….

    “We might race the Version Five boats for a couple more years, say, through 2011. Then, in looking at bringing a new class of boat online, what could be clever is to design that rule this year and build four identical boats of the new rule and put them on the circuit, to allow the teams to experience these boats before they actually have to design their own, so that there’s some background and some experience before we have to go out and spend, collectively, 50 or 100 million Euros on a fleet of boats.

    “The idea would be that all the design information that goes into the research for the rule — tank-testing, CFD, structural information on the rigs, on the hulls, on everything that goes into those four boats — would be available to all the teams as sort of a starter kit. And, of course, all the data on those boats.

    “Then we would race the 2012 season on those boats, shipping them around, then at the end of 2012 we would freeze the actual rule, from which the teams would build one new boat for the Cup. Those boats would be built in 2013 and come online at the end of 2013, probably for one of the Louis Vuitton events. For the first event of 2014, you bring your own boat and those start to really count for something. The Cup’s probably going to be in 2014, that’s my guess, just because, to do this all prudently, not in a rush and do it well, it’s better to do it well than do it in a rush. That’s my personal feeling but Larry and Russell will make the decisions.”

      Det där låter väl alldeles utmärkt.

    “We’d like this to not be a matter of who invests the most money in designing their boat but who sails the best” Kör nästa AC i RC44 då !

    San Francisco (March 26, 2010) – An agreement has been reached with the previous America’s Cup Trustee, Société Nautique de Genève, that all outstanding litigation in the New York courts concerning the recent 33rd match will be dropped by both sides.

    This includes GGYC’s Breach of Fiduciary Duty (“BFD”) claim against SNG, as well as all other claims over the design and construction of yachts Alinghi 5 and USA.
    GGYC’s yacht USA won the 33rd Match on February 14 off Valencia, Spain.

    “In place of controversy, we seek consensus. Instead of continuing argument, we are pleased to have reached agreement,” said GGYC Commodore Marcus Young.
    GGYC’s representatives have started a consultative process with regard to the venue, timing, format and type of boat for the 34th America’s Cup.

    GGYC and the Challenger of Record, Club Nautico di Roma and its sailing team Mascalzone Latino headed by Vincenzo Onorato, are cooperating closely in this.
    “Good decisions not hasty decisions – this is what the Cup community wants,” added Russell Coutts, CEO of GGYC’s sailing team BMW ORACLE Racing. “Our focus is on looking ahead and making the 34th edition of the oldest trophy in international sports the best America’s Cup yet.”

    Discussions will continue over the next six months with the details of the 34th Cup confirmed during 2010.

    “We will do our best to fulfill Larry Ellison’s vision of a competition which respects the Cup’s unique tradition whilst moving forward with the latest technology to attract an even wider audience,” commented Coutts.
