Ellison: AC Rules Will Cut Costs, Improve Racing

By Joao Lima and Aaron Kuriloff, Bloomberg // Aug. 18, 2011

The cost of racing in the 34th America’s Cup off San Francisco in 2013 may be less that what it was the last time more than two entrants contested the 159-year-old yachting trophy, even as the rules mandate faster, state-of-the-art boats that will produce better competition.

Russell Coutts, chief executive of defending-champion Oracle Racing and a four-time Cup winner, said in an interview in Cascais, Portugal, that a 60 million-euro ($86 million) campaign would be “very, very competitive” and 30 million Euros would produce a “budget team.” Oracle spent more than $100 million in the 2007 Cup, while China Team had the lowest budget at 14 million Euros.

At the same time, racing 72-foot catamarans, powered by 130-foot (40-meter) wing sails at speeds exceeding 30 knots, will produce more even competition where sailing skill will matter more than boat design, according to Larry Ellison, chief executive of Redwood City, California-based software maker Oracle Corp. and the yachting team’s founder.

“While there might be little differences in the boats, there aren’t going to be these major design differences,” Ellison said to reporters Aug. 14. “So I think the boats are going to be pretty close from an engineering standpoint and it’s going to be up to the sailors and crew to get them around the racecourse and win the races.”

Ellison campaigned unsuccessfully for the Cup in 2003 and 2007. He and his team won the right to choose the next venue and set the rules after capturing yachting’s “Auld Mug” off Valencia, Spain, in February 2010 in an unusual two-boat, best-of-three series against the Alinghi syndicate owned by Swiss billionaire Ernesto Bertarelli.

Winging It

By Adam Fisher, Wired Magazine

John Kostecki has one instruction for me: “Hold on.” It’s a sunny day in New Zealand’s Hauraki Gulf, off the coast of Auckland, and I’ve just boarded Kostecki’s boat. Actually, calling it a boat suggests something a lot more substantial than what I’m standing on. It’s the barest skeleton of a raft, a wisp of a catamaran 22 feet wide by just under 45 feet long. Called an AC45, it’s a bantam version of the next-generation America’s Cup yacht, and it’s unlike anything else on water. Above me is not a sail but a solid wing, mounted vertically like a fin. At 70 feet tall, it is longer than the wing of a Boeing 727. Yet the craft that this massive airfoil propels is almost fully dematerialized—a CAD file in wireframe hovering over the bay. As far as I can tell, there’s nothing to hold on to.

As the craft bobs idly in the water, Kostecki, the boat’s tactician, motions for me to head out to the center of the netting stretched between the two knifelike hulls, a place where I’m least likely to get in the way. The skipper, Jimmy Spithill, watches silently from behind mirrored sunglasses as I crawl out and embrace the base of the mast. As soon as I’m settled, the three other sailors on board begin to stir their winches. This causes a cat’s cradle of lines to spring up all around me and begin to dance. Just above my head is the wing’s bottom edge, a massive horizontal pole with a half dozen separate lines running in and out of it. It’s like a giant robot’s arm strung with rope tendons, and as it starts to flex—positioning the towering wing to catch the breeze—the boat accelerates with a gut-twisting quickness. Within seconds we’re outpacing the speedboat that dropped me off. A rooster tail of spray shoots from the bow of each hull, leaving me thoroughly soaked.

Next, accompanied by the terrible groaning howl of rope straining under maximum tension, the boat starts to tip up onto its side. One of the hulls lifts free of the water. “Hike out!” Kostecki barks, and the crew races—half running, half speed-climbing—to the high side of the boat. “Sorry, mate,” says one sailor after trampling across my back and flinging himself over the breaching hull. Their weight is the only thing keeping us from flipping. To gain maximum leverage they hang off the boat upside down, facing up, with their feet tangled in the netting and everything past their knees cantilevered over the side. The goal is not to bring our wayward hull back to the water but rather to bring it as close to the surface as possible without touching down. Flying the hull eliminates its drag. Flitting across the water, literally and figuratively on edge, the black carbon-fiber boat takes on a distinctly alien, insectoid grace. The next America’s Cup race takes place in 2013, but one thing is already sure: The event’s pioneers wouldn’t recognize their sport now.

Guided tour to the AC45

By James Boyd, The Daily Sail

Joey Newton has been one of James Spithill’s trimmers since the duo sailed together as part of Syd Fischer’s Young Australia campaign for the 1999-2000 America’s Cup. Like Spithill, despite being in his early 30s, Newton is now incredibly on to his fifth America’s Cup campaign having followed Spithill through OneWorld, Luna Rossa and was on board the monster USA17 wingsail trimaran for the 33rd America’s Cup. Newton continues to trim the headsails for Spithill on the AC45, alongside tactician John Kostecki, wingman Dirk de Ridder and bowman Piet van Nieuwenhuijzen.

In this 20 minute long video Newton gives us the full guided tour to the hull of their AC45, hull no4 from the production line, comparing it with the Extreme 40 that they campaigned in the build-up to the 33rd America’s Cup, the spine system that is similar to Alinghi 5 and the D35 catamarans plus some of the less well discussed aspects of the boat such as the electronic penalty system - including the lights that tell the crew when a penalty has been expended - plus the load cell at the rear end of the central spine attached to one of the many Pelican cases on board that houses a red flashing light and the siren indicating when the boat is overloaded.

34th AMERICA'S CUP

In the beginning

Source: America’s Cup website // Aug. 22, 2011

It was 160 years ago today, on August 22nd, 1851, when the yacht America triumphed over the pride of the British fleet in a race around the Isle of Wight, off England's south coast, winning the trophy that came to bear the yacht’s name.

At 160 years old, the America's Cup is often called the oldest trophy in international sport. To give some context, consider that when the first Games of the modern Olympics were held in Athens, Greece in 1896, the first chapter in the America's Cup story had been written a full 45 years earlier.

It began in the early summer of 1851, America sailed across the Atlantic from the east coast of the United States for a season of racing against the best that Britain could offer.

But her owners had tipped their hand. On arriving in British waters, America had left its welcoming committee in its wake, making races (and the profitable wagers that accompanied them) difficult to find.

Eventually, America was able to enter the Royal Yacht Squadron's £100 Cup (also referred to as the 100 Guinea Cup); a race around the Isle of Wight against a fleet of British boats, with the winner on the water taking the trophy - no time allowances would be made.

The boats started, arranged under anchor, in two rows off Cowes. As the start gun fired at 10:00am, the yachts slipped anchor in the light breeze and made their way to the East.

Versus to broadcast ACWS highlights shows in US

Source: America’s Cup website // Aug. 17, 2011

America’s Cup officials have reached an agreement with the U.S. cable network Versus to broadcast highlights packages of the America’s Cup World Series.

The 50-minute highlight programs will feature highlights from each AC World Series event, including the tight action of the AC Match Race Championship, the high-octane AC500 Speed Trial and the winner-takes-all race on the final Sunday that crowns the overall event champion.

Transforming the way that audiences connect with the sport is the focus of the team behind the new America’s Cup. To not only invite new audiences to the sport but also change the way people watch sailing, event organizers have made a significant investment in the production of next-generation broadcast images.

“Audiences are looking for different experiences, so we’ve created a varied offering of television programming to really extend our reach,” said Richard Worth, Chairman, America's Cup Event Authority. “We’re putting a great deal of time and care into our production to create stylish sporting programming that will resonate with audiences across the globe, whether they watch on television or online.”

THE CHALLENGERS' FILES

Artemis Racing’s Kevin Hall on the AC45

By Kevin Hall, Artemis Racing // Aug. 19, 2011

Artemis Racing has just finished being a part of a watershed two weeks in the history of sailboat racing, at the first America's Cup World Series event in Cascais. I was once-in-a-lifetime fortunate to have a front row seat at the event, racing on the AC45 in the Camber position. Here are a few thoughts about what makes this different to everything we've ever done in our sport, and why I'm thrilled that this is the future of sailing.

I was terrible at ball sports as a kid. Pretty much the last one picked unless it was the County Science Fair team. So I never got to be a part of a basketball starting five. Which means I have less experience picking myself up after bouncing a bad pass or missing a catch in the end zone than most athletes. But picking yourself up off the tramp, or supporting a teammate who is running late to get over the spine and under the wing to the windward daggerboard is exactly what you better be able to do if you want to succeed in America's Cup World Series racing.

Sure, I've called too much time to kill in a semi-final in a Version 5 boat and gone on to sail a good race, and I've overstood a few laylines in the TP52, and sat myself down that night with my notes to figure out what I missed and how to increase my percentages next time. But none of that was meanwhile exerting at 100% of max heart rate, with an average HR over 20 minutes of over 90% of max. And in those races, one little mistake - a half step shy of a perfect race - is about all you got if you wanted to win. There was plenty of time to plan ahead and not make them.

The AC45 feels onboard like the last 2 minutes of a basketball game that has had no subs, with the court bucking under your feet, everyone on the other team taller than you, and sometimes even the fans themselves between you and the hoop. There's grease on the ball, the backboard is changing from spongy to hard and back again, and don't forget the noise of three helicopters making the oxygen-starved space between your ears feel like the director's cut of Apocalypse Now.

You need to do your job. On our boat we call ourselves Monkey #1, 2, 3 and 4 from the bow back to remind ourselves that boathandling has to come first. On the Artemis Racing team website for the Cascais ACWS, my position was listed as "Camber". One little word which evokes the wing, but doesn't really mention the sub-roles as "Bowman Assist", "Trimmer Assist", "Runner if you get there first", and "Your call on this shift as long as you get it right…"
