Also on San Francisco Bay, this issue is teeming with great coverage from the recent America's Cup World Series (ACWS) San Francisco event. Some of the world's best shooters were on hand to capture fantastic image galleries of AC45s flying hulls, burying bows and offering the hordes of assembled spectators a wild show involving both match racing and fleet races. More, inside.
Speaking of the Cup, Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) won a serious point with the international jury that—while small on the surface—will make a big difference on the water. At the core of the debate, which was decided by the International Jury, was whether the AC72 class rule requires boats to be measured with their daggerboards up or down. Richard Gladwell, Sail-World's New Zealand editor, has put together a great in-depth look at what this decision will mean for next year's Louis Vuitton Series, as ETNZ now looks to have the fastest foils afloat (at least for now). Get the full story, inside this issue.
And in Hamilton, Bermuda, skipper Taylor Canfield (USVI) and his Team Chicago Match Race Center crew won the prestigious Argo Group Gold Cup by beating skipper Johnie Berntsson (SWE) and his Berntsson Sailing Team. Canfield won three straight bullets, earning his name on the King Edward VII Gold Cup Trophy and collecting a check for $50,000. 'This is the first time the four of us have sailed together as a team,' reported Canfield. 'I feel like my crew, Dan Morse, Josh McCaffrey and Mike Rehe, did such a great job that all I had to do was point the boat in the right direction. The finals just went really well for us and we just seemed to be picking the shifts.'
Also inside, get the post-play reports from the PWA Sylt World Cup, the RC44 Worlds and the 2012 Renaissance Re Junior Gold Cup. Enjoy!
