BMW Oracle to hold a presentation tonight in Valencia

BMW Oracle, the Challenger of Record for the 33rd America's Cup, will hold a presentation tonight at 8pm, local time, in Valencia's Yacht Club.

Tom Ehman, spokesperson, and Manolo Ruiz de Elvira, designer, will talk to an audience of club members and media.

We still don't know what these two gentlemen will talk about but if you have any question you would like to be asked, just leave a comment at this post.

We will try to publish online the video of the presentation later on Friday night.

BMW Oracle have already made it clear that they would like to see AC34 as a multichallenger event contested in AC90's. Is it true that BMW Oracle have a full design team devoted to developing an AC90 design at this stage? If so, and if BMW Oracle win AC33, doesn't this pose the very real possibility that we will see the same legal drama and accusations for AC34 when all the teams that have been forced to suspend activities and reduce or suspend design are faced with competing with BMW Oracle who have a 2+ year design head start? Wouldn't the fairest thing be for BMW Oracle and Alinghi to suspend AC90 design until after AC33 is resolved?

Everyone is at least already tinkering with doing the AC90 boat, the head start issue doesn't mean much, although it has been highlighted in the court case. If BMW Oracle was being sneaky they'd hesitate to indicate their preference for venue and yacht at this stage.

Didn't you think that changing the July 4th 2008 date from the original challenge could make the judge to come up with his own schedule?

I told you so...

Alingi has recieved alot of bad press reciently over holding up the 33rd americas cup.
Do you feel that your team may be partly to blame as without your challange there could be more and better racing for all of the teams at the moment?

if there is a capsize during the race will they allow outside assistance to get the boat back up and continue the racing?
