Report: BMW Oracle delegation to arrive in RAK on Sunday

According to an article published in Dubai-based Gulf News, a delegation from BMW Oracle, most probably led by CEO and skipper Russell Coutts, is expected to arrive in the UAE tomorrow Sunday on a fact-finding mission.

Dr Khater Masa'ad, adviser to Shaikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, told Gulf News that "there was no reason for the BMW Oracle team to see the UAE in a bad light". According to Dr Massaad, "they are supposed to be here for two days".

In the meantime, according to Gulf News, Alinghi member Will MacCarthy has been in the UAE for the past couple of weeks. Dr Masa'ad said to Gulf News that "the team was studying the area and winds and compiling the necessary data to move base".

Fact finding mission, or looking for more reasons to complain?

"Oh mummy I don't like it there, call my lawyer".

Looking at the lates legal documents it's quite possible that BOR is willing to play in the RAK provide SNG starts being fair on some of the other issues that they've twisted due to their lack of understanding of the tradition & history of the AC.

They cannot complain about the venue maybe not ready next year.

The fact is: the island is already there and looks easy to finish.

I just wonder how exciting it will be to sail these phantastic boats in 4 to 7 knots of wind.
What a waste
