Grant Simmer, CEO of Team Origin, comments on draft 34th America's Cup Protocol

[Source: Team Origin] "We are very pleased to have received the draft form of the Protocol for the 34th America’s Cup last night. It is a very detailed document and so will take us some days to digest and discuss internally. TEAMORIGIN very much wants to be involved in the process of moving this draft forward into a final Protocol document by the 31st August 2010 and therefore we will collate our thoughts and feedback over the next week and input our comments. The document has been based in some areas on the AC32 Protocol, with some new additions. We do have some concerns but will voice them directly to GGYC. We are very encouraged to see that GGYC and Club Nautico di Roma are keen to empower and include the future potential challengers in this process as we move forward."

Don't see anything wrong with this statement, the message is clear.

GGYC promised to involve potential challengers in the process and deliver an event that met the concensus of all competitors. It was the crux of their legal case.

Teamorigin are reminding them of this and saying they are willing to play the game, it would be very surprising if any challenger agreed with everything that is in the draft and I doubt if GGYC expected them to. So far GGYC are living up to their promise, if a little slowly so let's give them and the challengers a chance to work it out.

Still do not understand, always in the past understood and as was the case in AC33. The Challenger issues a challenge in a certain type of boat and the Defender nominates a location.
Help please??

9.22 pm poster - umpire is trying to say that a challenge for the cup under the deed of gift does not have to wait for the defender to nominate the type of boat that will be accepted.

Is there anything else you don't understand you dunce ?
