If Desafio español can't be the challenger of the record because CNEV is not a nautic club, Desafio Español can't be a challenge for the next 33 AC

I would like to know if a challenge, Desafio Espanol, which has a "legal Adjustment" instead of a yacht club, can be a challenge for the 33rd America's Cup?

Is Alinghi in active discussions with Oracle to resolve the remaing issues, or are they waiting for the Supreme Court to decide it instead? If they are just waiting, then why?

When (ok, IF) the judge decide that CNEV is not the right COR and BWM is the next one in the list, where will Alinghi decide to race the catamaran that BMW is preparing for july 2008?

Will the race course be the same as last time, just longer? Any thought given to moving the start closer to the top mark, and having more downwind sailing earlier in each match?

1. How much lead time is required to source and machine a lifting steel keel fin of 6.5 meters draft?
2. Will the AC90 class rule allow spinnakers to be used upwind?
3. Assuming not, won't the enormous 60 percent increase in draft and mere 20 percent increase in rig height produce AC90 hulls even more slender than the previous AC class hulls?
4. Were any studies performed to evaluate the effect on cost and hull design if a fixed draft limit of 4.5 meters was specified instead?

Is it realistic for the racing to happen in 2009 or should the cup be postponed till 2010 considering there is no resolution to the CNEV legal adjustment problem. Also if 2009 is the date would it not be best to stick with the IACC rule, and wait one cycle for the larger boats.

When will all the AC match conditions and sailing instructions which impact design strategies, such as sail limitations, measurement changes and boat substitution rules, be made available?

If the Supreme Court of NY decides Desafío Español is not a proper C.OF R., is Alinghi going to keep the format and dates for 2009?

Are the class rules contained in the document released 31 of October the final version of the rules, for the hull and sails at least? If not, they can still be changed in a significant way or not? In other words, designer can start thinking about the hull described in the rules or it can be completely different one the race will take place?

I have some questions regarding the new class rule:
1) It is common belief that these new boats will be lot faster and therefore, the team that has the faster boat will be the one winning the race, leaving few space to the spectacularity of the match race. Is that true? or will we have again the chance to see some great match racing also with these giant boats?
2) With these new boats will there be more problems connected with the lack or scarcity of wind in comparison to the last AC?
3) What do the "small" teams think about this new class rule?
