    It looks like R.G. at Sail-World.com is on it!




    The second protest involves changes to the venues for the 2013 rounds of the America's Cup World Series, where the America's Cup Regatta Management have posted a notice, apparently without obtaining the agreement of the competitors, cancelling the Venice round of the ACWS, and substituting it with two events in USA, at an unnamed venue, at the end of May, to early June.

    "Previously it had been agreed between ACRM and the teams that there would be two ACWS events in Italy - Venice and Naples. Now the Venice event has been cancelled. No reason has been given for the change, but it is believed to stem from non-payment of event fees in Venice for the 2012 event.

    Under the terms of the Protocol for the 34th America's Cup, competitors are obliged to compete in the America's Cup World Series, and it is claimed that the new schedule, announced arbitrarily, and the compulsory nature of the participation will disrupt the build up of teams for the 34th America's Cup Regatta.

    One option is for teams to exchange tit for tat, and refuse to compete in the new events in the America's Cup World Series. However the Jury is expected to rule on the matter before such unilateral action is taken by at least the Italians.

    The Jury has gone through its first stage of a Hearing which is to issue Directions (confriming that a protest has been received) which can be read by clicking here

    No Directions have been issued by the International Jury in the first case, involving the claimed intrusion, however the leaking of Jury information by the teams is a serious matter, and contrary to the Rules of Procedure imposed by the International Jury governing the America's Cup. That has prompted the International Jury to issue a riposte to the teams reminding them of their obligations. The full protest form was first posted on the US Sailing Anarchy website, without a source being stated.

    Subsequent enquiries by Sail-World revealed that all Challengers for the America's Cup, including the still-born Team Korea, are receiving information relating to the America's Cup Regatta via JuryComms and this could also include teams in the America's Cup World Series only, so tracking the source of the leak may not be that easy.
