[Source: America's Cup Management] AC Management, the organising body of the 33rd America's Cup, has today released the Event Regulations, the third and final document that will rule the competition scheduled to take place in 2009 in Valencia.

Following the publication of the AC90 Class Rule on October 31st and the Competition Regulations on November 8th, this new document has been produced in consultation with the Defender, Alinghi, and with the entered Challengers. It will govern mainly the commercial aspects of the relationship between the organisation and the participants. It also includes the deadline for entries, which has been set on December 15, 2007.

All the elements required to proceed with a successful competition in 2009 are now in place, and have the support of the Challenger of Record and all the existing competitors. However, the possibility of a race for the Cup in 2009 is impaired because of the negative effects that Golden Gate Yacht Club's (GGYC) lawsuit is having on sponsors and other arrangements for the Event.

The Société Nautique de Genève (SNG) has therefore required GGYC to withdraw its lawsuit by November 16 at 1700 hours, New York time, and to clarify its position with regard to its participation in the 33rd America's Cup.
