IT certainly sounds like a blast - maybe all those unemployed team members still in VLC could bring down the donkeys they now drive around in, and organise some donkey rides for the kids on Malvarossa Beach ?

Attention. BMW/Oracle has already announce that they will be opposed to this one-sided program. They want that the Commercial Harbour is part of the festivities. If the AC Jury does not agree to BORs request, they will go to the NY Court.

BORama boat is a french boat form a-z. A very nice french boat! I dont understand why France would sail against Alinghi!

The International Jury will Announce their decisions tomorrow. Monday will bring Exibition 1, Wednesday will bring Exibition 2, Friday will bring Exibition 3 if needed. Other Exibition wills be scheduled Weather Dependent. Then Litigation will Begin. Who's going to win the Olympic Gold in Freestyle Snowboard? No matter who wins the 33rd Non-Event, It will be interesting to see the Technology!

I personaly would say that this AC is like after a good day of skiing ... when you remove your shoes ! Your painful feet were squeezed and cold for a whole day and then, "walking" with such a pair of shoes and skis is almost like walking with havy chain in jail. But then you get out of jail and here is the regatta ! I will appreciate this moment and forget the rest, even who wins !
