Golden Gate Yacht Club welcomes prospect of speedy court decision

[Source: Golden Gate Yacht Club] The Golden Gate Yacht Club said today it welcomed the prospect of a speedy court ruling in resolving the issues surrounding the protocol for the next America’s Cup.

After a hearing in the New York State Supreme Court where Justice Herman Cahn said he would deliver his decision soon, the club’s spokesman, Tom Ehman, said the American team had presented a strong case that the Club Náutico Español de Vela (CNEV) challenge was invalid and the new protocol unfairly advantaged the defender.

“We were very pleased with today,” Ehman said. “Justice Cahn understands the issues. He said he would rule soon which is what we have sought from the start.”

The proceedings in the court will carry on as usual unless both the parties reach some agreement. It's high time Ernesto and Larry talk to each other keeping their egos aside, for the good of this great sport. Ernesto should know that he does not own the cup,is just a trustee and should have some respect for others' opinions.Larry on his part should not fly too high thinking that the case in the court is tilted in his favour. One never knows in these kind of cases, judgement could go either way. A little bit of compromise at this stage is much better, dignified than loss of face later.

Is this going to be like the AC in 1988? That was embarrassing, and so is this pretending show.
This is not American Football, european soccer (futbol) or F1. This is sailing, the most beautiful sport ever.
Let's put some boats on the water and race...and let's keep it that way.
