This Italian 'team' should stop dreaming. They are not going to be involved in any 33rd AC. There is no way they can have a boat ready for a May AC let alone February. Asking BMWO to delay any more is only letting Alinghi get stronger. If Alinghi win the 33rd AC it will be the end of the competition!

My grandmother has a Hobie cat. Could she take part on this 33rd AC?

Her Royal Yacht Club is 73 years old. It has 5 members and it organises a race every year in Meditarrean Sea. Could it be third Challenge for this?

Pierre, you don't lose time with fool Alinghi ideas, please.

SNG is getting really, really desperate now. Time for the NY courts to finish them off.
