Yes Sail-World´s coverage of the 34th America´s Cup Regatta is building up. Sail-World has a team of three in San Francisco - with the world's top international sailing correspondent, Bob Fisher providing his thoughts on the day. Videographer John Navas is providing some excellent insights of the racing and practice. With long-time America's Cup photographer and Sail-World contributor Chuck Lantz providing daily galleries of still images. Plus we have the images provided by the teams and official photographers.

The America's Cup Regatta build up (aka as Louis Vuitton speed trials) is gradually gaining momentum and ashore the International Jury ruling this week on the protest applications that have been lodged by Emirates Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa.

As Richard Gladwell, who will be on the water come September, wrote yesterday 'the Jury handed down a simple, and clear decision, which just restated the Protocol governing the 34th America's Cup, and AC72 Class Rule changes, in particular.

That decision should have come as no surprise to anyone. Sail-World first made the comment back on May 25, 2013 the day the Recommendations were announced. 'Changes to that AC72 rule can only be done with the consent of all the teams – a simple majority is not enough.'

Australia´s Iain Murray, the Race Director, has been directed by the International Jury to 'make the views of all the Competitors known to the Coast Guard' so that the Marine Event Permit can be maintained, and that he is to negotiate with that body any changes to any component of the safety plan and what differences this will make.

Bob Fisher´s take is interesting as usual He reports that as 'always phlegmatic, Murray said 'We’ll make it work one way or another.'

Today Beau Outteridge lightens the mood for everyone with his latest Bangin´the corners video. Well done mate!


Back in Oz Peter Harburg’s newest Black Jack will be christened later this morning. The Volvo 70, which contested the 2011-12 Volvo Ocean Race as Telefonica, was shipped from Europe to Australia in March. Due to an unexpected delay the 70-footer went straight from the container ship to the shed for modifications.

This left Black Jack’s crew a tight window of just five weeks to strip the old livery, rebrand the boat and complete sail handling modifications to make it more user-friendly inshore, ahead of the Sydney to Southport Race and its northern regattas.

Ahead of next week’s ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships the Australian Sailing Youth Team has arrived in Cyprus with three crews out to defend medals from 2012.

The Australian team features 12 sailors competing in eight classes with Mark Spearman the defending champion in the Laser Radial boys’ class, while Carrie Smith and Ella Clark won silver in the 420 girls’ in 2012, with Paul Darmanin and Lucy Copeland also finishing second in the multihull class.

Lots more news from the local and international scenes.
