In Topic: Does anyone here support Coutts?

Today, 01:14 AM

RC is a fanstastic sailor and his vision so far ahead that most teams can't follow.

 

But how seriously HIYC accept such a protocol with no venue, no real agenda, archimedian AC45, two venues in two different hemisphere.

 

How can you ask millions to a sponsor being clueless about the future ? Total nonsense and stupidity.

 

But do we have blame Coutts or the Oatleys ?

good question - TC 

 

you know the answer - 

 

ggyc has all the blame and liabilities - 

 

all their crooked bs and hire a scapegoat corps-ie acea and coutts etc is not the ones really responsible 

 

ggyc is the purported offender / defender yc  

 

ahole 2 - soiler aka sheep whisperer will be posting his expert comments on this shortly -  :rolleyes:

 

with ahole 1 spinray doing follow up with his usual '' thats what is I was thinking '' bs like he is all knowing -  :rolleyes:

 

:lol:

America’s Cup: A more humble approach is needed
 
Published on July 23, 2014 |
 
Force10 Marketing President Scott Macleod has over 20 years experience within the global sports and entertainment arena, which has included the launch of the World Match Racing Tour (2000-09) and involvement in the America’s Cup since 1992. With the current holders of the America’s Cup seeking to create a commercially “sustainable” event, Scott is not optimistic that the current path will succeed. Here he explains…
 
The 2007 America’s Cup in Valencia, Spain delivered the most commercially viable event in the history of the Cup:
 
- 60M euro profit distributed to the teams ­ yes, a profit!
- 11 Challengers
- 9 Countries
 
This was not that long ago, and the 2007 numbers carried on from the 2000 and 2003 America’s Cup in New Zealand, which showed sponsors a positive upward trend in the ‘commercial’ development of the event.
 
Unfortunately, the wholesale changes that were instituted for the 2013 event have not shown a significant change to make the commercial ‘product’ better. The current model has, and will continue to, deliver less teams which equals less commerce.
 
The math is actually pretty simple:
Less Teams = Less Countries = Less Broadcasters = Less Exposure = Less Sponsors Interest = Less Commercial Return.
 
So how do we get more teams to compete?
- Lower the cost significantly
- Use a platform type that is available and used by a wider group (owners, sailors, designers, builders, etc.)
 
While the technology and cool factor of the AC72 foiling cats was impressive, it didn’t deliver a significant boost in the audience numbers to justify 1/3 of the teams competing in the last event. And for this current cycle, it once again is showing less interest in teams competing in AC62′s.
 
If the goal is to create a commercially sustainable event, the math points to monohulls. If the America’s Cup announced that the event was to be held in TP52′s tomorrow, you’d have ten challenges in a heartbeat!
 
The current plan is too full of contradictory elements. The boat type is a hindrance to attracting challengers, yet its coolness has convinced organizers that it will attract viewers. And organizers only want four quality challengers to provide close competition, yet this limits the audience pool from which to attract viewers.
 
The sweeping changes so as to sell a ‘sexy’ event appear doomed. The market reality is that the America’s Cup is a tier 2/3 niche sport at best. Our current audience is small but highly wealthy, exclusive, passionate and global. We must speak to our core fan first (the “Flintstones”) before trying to attract new fans.
 
If the organizers become more humble in their approach, and build the ‘product’ reputation by delivering consistency, there is a chance of doing more good than harm. Currently, I worry that the later is being done.

Golden Gate Yacht Club settles America’s Cup lawsuit - 
 
 

July 23, 2014) – African Diaspora Maritime Corporation (ADM) and Golden Gate Yacht Club (GGYC) hereby jointly announce that ADM and GGYC have mutually agreed to settle the action titled African Diaspora Maritime Corporation v. Golden Gate Yacht Club, Index No. 653419/2011, filed in the Supreme Court of the State Court of New York, County of New York.

In its complaint, ADM alleged (among other things) that GGYC failed to consider in good faith ADM’s application to compete in a Defender Series for the 34th America’s Cup (AC34). GGYC denied ADM’s allegations. The parties have now settled their dispute.

ADM is fully committed to continuing its efforts to participate in future America’s Cup races. GGYC, which will again defend the Cup in the 35th America’s Cup, is fully supportive of ADM’s stated mission, which is:

(a) to participate in local, national, and international competitive sailing events and maritime activities, including, but not limited to the America’s Cup;
( B) to train young African-Americans as competitive race sailors;
© to teach the math and science behind hi-tech sailing as well as the role of African-Americans in maritime history; and
(d) to serve as a role model by raising awareness of sailing not only in the African-American community but also in America generally.
