Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

While the AC event committee may THINK they are running the show; it's really just a façade to make the whole deal look more polished and marketable. The real decision power lies with the Defender and to a lesser extent the Challenger of Record (who are Oracle and ETNZ). If they can't hash out an agreement then the whole thing goes to the courts and it falls back to the wording of what was agreed upon several years ago. Hopefully it won't get to that. It could end up that Artemis and Luna Rossa abandon their campaigns and it goes straight to the AC 34 event between Oracle and ETNZ.
