Cup Jury denies Oracle request for Redress

America's Cup Jury denies BMW Oracle request for redress

The ISAF appointed international jury denied BMW Oracle's request for redress regarding measurement of the competing yachts

Valencia, Spain - (2010-02-02)

The ISAF International Jury for the America's Cup issued an interim decision late Tuesday night rejecting the challenger, BMW Oracle's latest complaint regarding the position and volume of the water ballast onboard the racing yachts during measurement.

“We are pleased that the jury upheld the New York Supreme Court and expert panel decision of November 2009. This is a positive step towards the America's Cup – we are glad that measurement can go ahead as scheduled and that the challenger's request for redress has been denied.

With just a few days to go before the first race of the 33rd America's Cup, the team is fully focused on race training and preparations,” said Grant Simmer, Alinghi design team coordinator.
