In Istanbul, Turkey, the Extreme 40 regatta continues. After a disappointing start, Emirates Team NZ are climbing through the fleet in quite impressive fashion. We feature all the official reports along with images and video in this edition of Sail-World. Also featured are the reports from Dean Barker writing for Nexus/Kiwi Yachting Consultants - and gives a perspective that is different from the PR spin on the event.

Staying with Emirates Team NZ, America's Cup, legal issues have once again popped above the parapet. Last night the team issued a release saying they had asked the International Jury to check the validity of the appointment process for the Challenger of Record after the withdrawal of the initial Challenger of record. In this edition we look at what might be behind the move, and where it is headed.
There's a Competitors Forum coming up next week - the issue may get aired in that theatre. We also feature a story from the highly respected and well connected yachting correspondent for The Independent (UK), Stuart Alexander as he looks at some similar but different issues surrounding the America's Cup.
