America's Cup: Statement by Tom Ehman, GGYC Spokesman

by Tom Ehman

We welcome the news that the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) has appointed the jury for the 33rd America's Cup. The panel is highly qualified.

We are pleased that it includes the members of the Expert Panel to which Justice Kornreich referred the five technical questions. The Panel's recommendations were confirmed by Justice Kornreich in her recent decision.

With the Jury's appointment we expect that the remaining rules issues, including revision of the Societe Nautique de Genev (SNG)-ISAF agreement and the draft Notice of Race, will be quickly resolved consistent with the Court's decisions and orders, and in accordance with normal - and fair - yacht racing rules and procedures.
