SNG Comité Central replies to GGYC’s letter

Related PDF Documents- SNG Comité Central replies to GGYC’s letter

[Source: Alinghi] The Société Nautique de Genève Comité Central responds to the Golden Gate Yacht Club's latest letter: "The SNG Comité Central is fully supportive of the Club’s decisions to date concerning the 33rd America’s Cup, including the selection of Ras Al Khaimah as the venue […]," it writes.

The letter highlights the GGYC’s acknowledgement that the SNG has the right and the duty to choose Ras Al Khaimah; it also underlines the American club’s recognition that it has neither right nor role in the selection of the venue.

The defending yacht club reminds the GGYC that it has chosen a venue in accordance with both the controlling Court Orders and the Deed of Gift. The Court Order, in particular, expressly affords SNG the right to designate Valencia “or any other location” as the venue for the next Cup. By its plain language, the Order allows a Northern or Southern Hemisphere venue, a fact that was repeatedly acknowledged by both Russell Coutts and Tom Ehman.

The letter from SNG also includes what BMW Oracle’s own security advisor said of the venue to the Ras Al Khaimah representatives during his recent visit.

In case SNG is destituted of its position of Defender or ordered to organize the AC33 in Valencia in Feb. 2010 and refuse to organize AC33 in Valencia in Feb. 2010 does the DOG have replies to the following questions.

1 - What could be the replacement defending club and when would the AC33 take place ?

2 - Assuming that the Cup went back to NZ, would GGYC be automatically the Challenger ?

This is funny. Now it is BMWOracle who supposedly try to postpone the race. If I remember correctly, BMWOracle wanted to race in 2008, but Alinghi wasn't ready, then they wanted to race in 2009, but Alinghi wasn't ready. Finally, BMWOracle had to force Alinghi to agree on February 2010 by legal means (Alinghi still didn't want to race then). Now Alinghi accuses BMWOracle of "continuing efforts to postpone and derail the 33rd Americas Cup". What a loss of reality...

Dear Pat,

unfortunately the world must also live with your idiotic comments, and obviously the healthcare system of your country, whatever it is, was not able to appropriately handle your "condition"
