Aussies in Medal Races, AC teams near pointy end, junior sailing +more

T-Foils of the same type used in Oracle Team USA's contentious rudders. The T-Foils are used on foiling moths but adjustable foils were deliberately written out of the AC72 rule.   Richard Gladwell ©

Richard Gladwell provides the latest update from San Francisco, as Oracle Team USA is in the process of fitting and sailing with the new winglets specified by America's Cup Regatta Director, Iain Murray and made public just over four weeks ago.

The advantage to a boat using an adjustable rudder elevator is that it gives her two means of controlling her foiling – through the adjustable daggerboard case, which only Emirates Team NZ and Luna Rossa initially fitted, and with a second adjustment on her rudder elevator.

As the situation stands, the two sailing Challengers have little scope to fit Rudder Elevators, as they are due to start racing in 10 days, while the Defender still has two months to continue and refine development.

Before the end of the week, one of the parties is expected to refer the matter to the International Jury for a binding resolution. The intention to take the matter straight to the NY Supreme Court is believed to be on hold.
