A NYYC 42 would probably be on par with a Farr 40 as far as yearly costs, depending upon the level of paid crew etc. I am recalling $250-500K for a yearly budget/target from the owners group. I could be wrong on this.

Another race to look at that uses F40's is the canadian cup. Simaler style of race, but on one of the great lakes. The club that started it in Toronto?!?!? has made it such that it can not go to far away if ever, and have tried to keep it more "amatuer" in crew from a cost standpoint. Probably more in line with when the 12M was used in the AC in how it was ran at the time.

The reality is, there are a number of races like the NYYC/canadian cup that are interesting.

Some hot news: one team gives up other joins in.

Mascalzone Latino a big team with a great sailing record is probably out:

Giornale Della Vela | Onorato pensa di ritirare Mascalzone Latino dalla Coppa America Vincenzo Onorato fondatore di Mascalzone Latino non smentisce e anzi a sorpresa confer

They cannot find the 80 millions needed to race.

Story | Mascalzone Latino

And a French time is in, The Energy team.

This one, if they can find the money for a good campaign (I don't believe they can) would be among the favorites:

Within a month of the official announcement last September that the America’s Cup was to be raced aboard multihulls,the Peyron brothers announced that they wanted to bring French know-how together to set up a Challenge to attempt to win the prestigious trophy. That is exactly what they have now achieved.

Energy Team, the new French challenge set up around Bruno and Loïck Peyron, has been officially registered for the 34th America’s Cup since 27th January 2011. It is the sixth Challenger aiming to grab the silver ewer.
.....

To fulfil this ambition, Energy Team has signed an exclusive partnership with Multiplast, the boatyard based in Vannes (Brittany), which is one of the international references in the world of multihull construction (Orange I and II, Groupama 3). The Multiplast yard will be reserved for Energy Team. The construction of the first AC72 catamaran will begin on 1st September with her launch planned for April 2012. Yann Penfornis, managing director of the yard, will be coordinating the AC 72 design and construction teams, under the supervision of Loïck Peyron".


34th America's Cup: Energy Team is sixth challenger

These are the guys:

Loïck Peyron, skipper of the AC45 and AC72: 6 times F60 world champion, 8 times F28 Trophy Champion winner,

Bruno Peyron: 8 times world ocean records champion, skipper of the G Class, which will be the ambassador for Energy Team,

Yann Guichard: helmsman with Loïck Peyron : Extreme 40 world number 2, Member of the French Olympic team,

Thierry Fouchier: performance team, the only Frenchman to have won the America’s Cup with BMW Oracle Racing which he was the wing sail trimmer.

Jean-Christophe Mourniac: performance team, member of the French Olympic team, one of the world’s top 5 Tornado and F18 racers over the past ten years.

Yves Loday: coach for young talent. Former member of the French Olympic team, he was Tornado gold medallist in Barcelona in 1992. He will be joining the team to prepare the "Youth America's Cup" that the American Defender islaunching.

The dates for the 2011-2012 AC world Series (45ft cats) were revealed. Not yet the places:

"The 2011-2012 AC World Series will be sailed in the AC45, the forerunner to the next generation of America’s Cup boats. The boat was launched to great acclaim in New Zealand last month. Focused on creating more on-the-water excitement for both the teams and the fans, the AC45 wing-sailed catamaran was designed for both speed and close racing. While capable of closing speeds of up to 30 knots, the AC45 remains nimble enough to handle the tight, tactical race courses planned by America’s Cup Race Management (ACRM).

The 2012-2013 season will be sailed in the larger and faster America’s Cup boats, the AC72, and its champion will be crowned just prior to the start of the Louis Vuitton Cup (America’s Cup Challenger Series) in July 2013. This AC World Series will also enable all teams seeking to compete in the America’s Cup Finals in September 2013 to be race-ready for the AC72".

2011-2012 America’s Cup World Series Schedule

Event One: 16 – 24 July

Event Two: 13 - 21 August

Event Three: 17 – 25 September

Event Four: 15 – 23 October

Event Five: 10 – 18 December

Event Six: 17 – 25 February, 2012

Event Seven: 14 – 22 April, 2012

Event Eight: 19 – 27 May, 2012

Any thoughts on all this?
Not that I Know of, and it may have been a past rule. I forget where it came from, but it sure would cut out a lot of crap.........i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

It seems like AC45's are a wet way to race. Perhaps they should have stuck to monohulls:
