A Battle For Round Robin One Supremacy

Luna Rossa Vs Abracadabra - Stars & Stripes Vs Young Australia Must Resail Matches
Report courtesy of www.louisvuittoncup.com

After a late night jury decision, two of yesterdays races are to be resailed this afternoon. The matches involve Stars & Stripes against Young Australia, and Luna Rossa against Abracadabra.

Both Young Australia and Abracadabra requested redress after the Race Committee wouldn't grant them postponements due to gear failure before their races. The International Jury granted their requests.

Todays other matches involve AmericaOne races that have been postponed to allow the team to repair damage from a collision last week. In the morning, AmericaOne will race Young Australia, in the afternoon, they line-up against Young America.

The Jury decision means the overall standings are still wide open. Prada and AmericaOne are still duelling for the top position. If AmericaOne wins both matches, and Prada loses to Abracadabra, both will finish with 9 points. Prada will have the edge by virtue of beating AmericaOne when they raced earlier in the round.

The decision also means the Stars & Stripes crew will be out on the water today, instead of preparing for any boat changes they may have planned before Round Robin Two. No team can make significant changes while races are still being sailed, but teams may prepare the boat for work. Being required to sail sets Team Dennis Conner back by nearly a full day.

The forecast is for good racing in winds building towards 20 knots. The boats and crews should be challenged by gusty conditions, and heavy seas.
