ORACLE Racing announces two crews for Cascais

By ORACLE Racing Comms // July 18, 2011

ORACLE Racing, winner of the 33rd America’s Cup, will field two crews in the inaugural America’s Cup World Series, staged in Cascais, Portugal, Aug. 6-14.

The two crews are headed by America’s Cup legends James Spithill and Russell Coutts, respectively the youngest skipper and the most successful skipper in the 160-year history of the event.

Round 1 of the new America’s Cup World Series will see the first competitive clash between ORACLE Racing and the challenger teams. There will be added zest with rivalry between the team’s two crews.

The ORACLE Racing Spithill crew includes tactician John Kostecki (USA), wingsail trimmer Dirk de Ridder (NED), headsail trimmer Joe Newton (AUS) and bowman Piet van Nieuwenhuijzen (NED). Spithill’s ‘young guns’ count five America’s Cup wins between them.

“We are extremely competitive and we are judged by our results, so I want to do everything possible to achieve this,” said Spithill.

By contrast, four of the ORACLE Racing Coutts veterans total a record-breaking 15 Cup victories, boosted to 16 when the team’s youngest sailor Simeon Tienpont’s 2010 win is counted.

Coutts said past results are no guarantee of future performance: “Anytime we are racing, we want to be competitive. Right now my levels of performance are not where I want them to be in these new boats, so that’s a personal goal. Otherwise, we want to show that we can win one or more of the World Series events.”

The ORACLE Racing Coutts crew includes tactician and wing trimmer Murray Jones (NZL), headsail trimmer Simon Daubney (NZL), pitman Matthew Mason (NZL) and Tienpont (NED), the bowman.

As the lone defender candidate, ORACLE Racing has two complete in-house crews to hone its skills. The team is coming off a month-long training session at its base in San Francisco, host venue for the 34th America’s Cup in September 2013.

“We’re all happy with the training we did in San Francisco,” said Kostecki. “We feel very prepared heading into Cascais. It’s going to be the first time that ORACLE Racing, as the defender, goes up against the other challengers. So we’re really going out to win.”

Spithill, Kostecki, de Ridder and Newton were aboard the trimaran USA 17 when it won the 33rd America’s Cup. Bowman van Nieuwenhuijzen joined the team last September.

Coutts’ crew includes old mates Daubney, who joined the team last month, Jones and Mason.

ORACLE Racing’s two AC45 catamarans are en route from the USA to the venue in Cascais, Portugal. The two crews hope to begin practice sessions on Aug. 3.

AC45s depart Savannah

The three containers holding ORACLE Racing’s two AC45s departed Savannah, Ga., this morning bound for Algeciras, Spain. The containers are in transit aboard the Kuwaiti flagged Al Sabahia, a 277m cargo ship.

“The containers were loaded over the weekend and the ship is gone,” said logistics manager Chris Sitzenstock. “The ship should arrive in Spain on July 28 and then the truck in Cascais on the July 29 or 30.”

In the meantime, four containers shipped from New Zealand have arrived in Lisbon and are in storage at the ACRM temporary facility, established to help clear the many containers through Portuguese customs. A team tender is due to arrive any day.

Like the other teams entered in the America’s Cup World Series – Cascais, ORACLE Racing gets access to its team base in Cascais beginning July 25. The Shore Team arrives July 24-29, the Sailing Team Aug. 2-3 and practice sailing is scheduled to begin Aug. 4.

34th AMERICA'S CUP

Katie Spithill on helming the AC45

By Damien Devine, Sail-World.com // July 16, 2011

Katie Spithill, sister of ORACLE Racing skipper James and a past No. 2-ranked women’s match racer, is currently in Weymouth training with AST and RPAYC mates Nicky Souter and Jess Eastwell.

Katie, you recently did a trip to San Fran to catch up with brother James and check out the AC45’s and the new AC set up. I believe you were the first female to be lucky enough to helm an AC45. Along with James and his ORACLE Racing Team you experienced first-hand the power of these awesome machines. It’s a great opportunity to get a female perspective on the boats and how they fit into match racing and the multihull scene in general. So…

What do you think of the 45’s?
Spithill: Wow – I don’t know where to start, the first thing I said after we hit the dock after the days racing & training was “Can I have one?” The AC45 was great, it is a fantastic multihull to choose to be involved in the Americas Cup.

Being a match racer and now a F18 sailor, how do you think the match racing aspect will work with these boats?
Spithill: Being onboard one of the two ORACLE Racing boats whilst they were Match Racing gave me a real insight as to how it is already working using these mutlihulls to Match Race. Not only was it fast, ever changing and exhilarating, there was also a fear factor in there of “will we cross, we will meet” etc., whilst the boats are fast closing in on each other at 25+ knots of boat speed.

Unlike the old AC boats or many match racing boats these boats are fast moving and need a lot of foresight and anticipation in relation to what will happen next, so that the runners can be loaded, the daggerboards changed, the gennaker furled, etc before you can tack or gybe.

Do you think it could be sailed by an all female crew?
Spithill: The age old question! It is not a question of if it can be done but more so when it will be done. It has been done in the past by the likes of Dawn Riley and the Mighty Mary team back in 1995 when she beat greats like Conner and Cayard. Women can do just fine in the AC when the position and circumstances are right; Just the same as any male team. Forcing it to be an all female team is not a good plan. Integrate women in a proper way and you'll have something, Drivers, Tacticians? Yes. Girls can compete with men on equal terms there, but there is no way that an all girl crew can be competitive when brute force is a key component. Unless of course there were more of them, and this is already the case in some match race classes.

Newport nonprofit partners with America’s Cup

Source: Providence Business News // July 15, 2011

The America’s Cup Event Authority has chosen a Newport, R.I.-based organization, Sailors for the Sea, as its first partner in a new international program intended to better preserve and protect the oceans of the world.

The America’s Cup authority is partnering with Sailors for the Sea in its “Clean Regattas” program, which provides certification that indicates independent third-party verification that a yacht club, sailing program or regatta is environmentally responsible and is doing its utmost to protect the sea.

“We are excited to support the sustainability initiative of the 34th America’s Cup,” said Daniel Pingaro, CEO of the nonprofit Sailors for the Sea, founded in 2004. “A clean, diverse and vibrant marine ecosystem is good for the environment, for recreation and the economy.”

From public service announcements woven into the America’s Cup broadcasts to visible identification on all America’s Cup boats and events, recognition of ocean conservation and environmental stewardship will be pervasive throughout the America’s Cup as it travels to global destinations over the next three years, the ACEA said.

America’s Cup preparations involve many agencies

By Will Kane, San Francisco Chronicle // July 17, 2011

At nearly 2,200 pages long, the city's plan for the 34th America's Cup might leave the impression that things are shipshape and merely awaiting the rubber stamp of approval.

They aren't.

Now that the environmental impact report is published, the city can begin a delicate dance with federal, state and regional agencies that must eventually approve different aspects of that plan. They'll also have to address concerns of residents and environmental groups, who look at the city's sweeping plan with wary eyes.

City sponsors and race organizers need a permit from the National Park Service to send more than 90,000 spectators onto park property each day, permission from the Army Corps of Engineers to begin construction on the water, new maritime regulations from the Coast Guard that define the rules of the race course, authorization from a state commission to anchor the massive megayachts of multi-millionaires on public water.

And that's not even half the work to be done. All by the end of the year.

Michael Martin, who's shepherding the plan through the approval process for the city, said that while that all might sound overwhelming and terribly bureaucratic, it's actually the best way to get a good plan.

"I think people really are looking to improve the project," he said. "We need their constructive criticism."

A variety of groups are ready to tell the city what they think is the best way to handle the roughly 1.5 million people expected to watch trial races in 2012 and the more than 5 million people who could turn out for the actual races in 2013 - as many as 500,000 of them on one "super peak" day.

THE CHALLENGERS' FILES

White Tiger begins to prowl

Source: America’s Cup website // July 17, 2011

Team Korea took to the water Saturday morning (July 16) for its first ever sail, marking another milestone for the first Korean America's Cup challenge.

“Today was really good, a bit puffy, gusting 20 knots or so and there were a few holes around but mostly a really good first sail,” said skipper Chris Draper after returning to shore. “The most nervous part for me was actually getting off the dock, but once we were out there it was all awesome. So we are very happy.”

Team Korea’s AC45 was pushed out of its tent early Saturday morning near Cascais, revealing its spectacular and original livery, featuring a white tiger motif - the emblem of Team Korea - on both hulls.

With the help of ACRM shore team, the platform was then launched and towed one mile down the Tago River to the temporary training base where the hull was put onshore again to receive its wing, a process closely followed by the other teams preparing their boats: Aleph, Team Energy and Venezia Challenge.

Team Korea was able to take to the water by mid-afternoon, becoming the first team to start training on site in an AC45 before the America’s Cup World Series -Cascais.

AC45 training in Valencia

By Paul Cayard, CEO, Artemis Racing // July 17, 2011

Our team has been training on our AC45 here in Valencia for a week now. I went out yesterday (July 16) and joined them onboard in 18-22 knots of wind. It was quite a ride! 27 knots was the top speed of the day and 20-24 knots is normal downwind speed in those conditions.

The level of physical activity onboard is like nothing the America's Cup has ever seen. The races last 30 minutes and the heart rate for most of the five man crew is over 150bpm for that entire period with peaks of 175. They actually wear heart rate monitors so our team's trainer, Pete Cunningham, can log their physical capabilities and stresses. Recovery from these races will be paramount and the coach boat comes alongside after the session with energy drinks and protein bars. The crew eat “gel” throughout the day.

I look at all this and wish I was 20 years younger. It looks like so much fun and I love that it is so physical. Growing up, I loved basketball as much as I loved sailing. But I ran out of vertical so stuck with the sailing. In sailing, I always loved the Star on a windy day because it is so physically challenging. It looks to me like catamaran sailing in the America’s Cup is going to bring sailing into the realm of a truly physical sport.
