America’s Cup: Details, Details, Details

Published on July 16th, 2013

* With the school year completed, activity is now increasing for the two North American teams selected to compete in the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup (Sept 1-4). The American Youth Sailing Force (USA), which represents San Francisco, continues to train on the very high-performance SL33 this month. The team had been utilizing Oracle Team USA’s training support until recently, but have now moved to a new gym in San Francisco. – Full report

* The Round Robin segment of the Louis Vuitton Cup challenger series concludes on August 1. The Round Robin winner will have the option to go direct to the Challenger Finals (Aug 17-30) or elect to advance to the Semi Finals (Aug 6-15) and choose their opponent in the Semi Finals. If the later scenario occurs, the other team goes direct to the Finals, and will wait to compete against the winner of the Semi Finals. Scoreboard here.

* Watching the races live on will continue until the network broadcast begins with the Challenger Finals and continues to the America’s Cup Match. The current production is a scaled down version, with no cameras or audio coming from the boats. Look for the production scope to increase for the Challenger Semi-Finals. Broadcasts will occur as long as both scheduled teams compete. The Artemis Racing team has not yet confirmed when they will be ready for racing; Emirates Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa Challenge are scheduled to meet three more times in the Louis Vuitton Cup round robins on July 21, 23, and 28 (all at 12:15pm PDT).
