Fisher's View: Wobbly wind again
By Bob Fisher,
There is an old adage that states: you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink. It is applicable in Valencia to yacht racing. All the paraphernalia was in place – the committee boats, the mark laying craft and the competitors, but only on the north course was any racing possible.... [more]

Editorial: Happy is Larry
By Richard Gladwell NZ Editor,
Round Robin 1 of the Louis Vuitton Cup was dominated by the Valencian weather which did not perform as promised. When the breezes did come in they were quite variable in strength and direction and were not often above 10 knots. The eight race days lost must have had an effect on team focus. It is against this backdrop that the performance of the challenging teams must be evaluated... [more]

Fisher's View: Italian sparkling water
By Bob Fisher,
The most exciting and final day of the First Round Robin of the Louis Vuitton Cup belonged to Luna Rossa, the only boat to score two wins.

This morning there was a goodly breeze, but because of the television scheduling no racing was held.

Fisher's View: Cooler, Rain, and Fickle Breeze
By Bob Fisher,
Never mind the weather, never mind the rain; there was a pot full of excitement when Areva met Victory in the most dramatic match to date.

Quotes of the Day: Day 10, Flights 6 and 7
By America's Cup Media,
David Brooke, Mast, BMW Oracle Racing, on how the racing in the Louis Vuitton Cup is going to unfold: 'My prediction is that there’ll be some really close racing, a lot of close tacking, a lot of lee-bows, and a lot of slam dunks.

Fisher's View: More wind and more racing
By Bob Fisher,
To watch Dean Barker behind the wheels of Emirates Team New Zealand in the pre-start of the match with Shosholoza was like watching a cat toy with a mouse.

Fisher's View: 'I wish you were beautiful'
By Bob Fisher,
'The weather is here, I wish you were beautiful' The words of the Jimmy Buffett song were uppermost in my mind as I left the Alinghi Press Conference this morning. Following the abject refusal by ACM to allow us access to the weather data it had used to 'choose' Valencia as the venue for the 32nd America’s Cup, and the admission by its CEO that it had used the Alinghi weather team, I had gone with great expectations of an explanation....

Sir Robin - Youngsters advantage not significant
By Sir Robin,

Fisher's View: What a difference a day makes
By Bob Fisher,
There was a complete change in attitude in Valencia today when it became apparent that the existing wind conditions were favourable to the formation of a sea breeze.

And it did, peaking to 10 knots, guaranteeing that racing was definitely on.... [more]

From the Blogs: SailJuice - Andy Rice
By Andy Rice:,
You can tell a lot about a team from its attitude to light and fluky conditions. There's no doubt that the wind conditions in Valencia - when they are good enough to actually race in - are a great leveller between the strong and the weak teams. So no wonder the big teams would rather wait while some of the minnows want to get on with it.... [more]

Fisher's View: Busy doin' nothing
By Bob Fisher,
For one who is 'trying to find lots of things not to do,' Valencia is ideal, particularly if yacht racing is on the agenda. Each day passes without wind and little promise of it. The official forecast from ACM for Tuesday was: 'Warmer and less cloud, but less wind.' Any less and the heavens will have to suck.... [more]
