- Bertarelli's scenario plausible but unlikely

adjective: (of an argument or statement) seeming reasonable or probable.

OK! Not plausible :-)

... but not impossible.

- Bertarelli's scenario plausible but unlikely

- VSail is constantly throwing stupid questions and lately has rarely been in the right.

- ETNZ would not choke for 2.5 and why EB would like to see them lose? If they had to choke, it is because they received 50M from a proven cheater, i.e. LE who had obviously more vested interests to do so.

Alonso, Montezemolo! Are you ready to cheat?

So long Russ!

Now you can go anywhere counting your money.

By 10 June 2011, all Competitors shall enter into an agreement with ACRM for the purchase of at least one AC45, and shall have paid the non-refundable deposit required by ACRM.
A Competitor failing to do so shall cease to be eligible for the Event


The Event shall be governed by:
( a ) the Deed of Gift;
( b ) this Protocol;
( c ) the AC72 Class Rule, except for regattas that do not use the AC72 Class Rule, the AC45 Class Rule; and
( d ) the ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing (America’s Cup Edition)(“RRSAC”).
Do you actually have to race in the AC45 world series?
( a ) for a failure to attend a World Series Regatta racing where the Competitors are racing an AC45 Yacht, the Competitor shall be fined US$150,000;
( c ) for a second failure to attend a regatta the Competitor shall cease to be eligible for the Event and for entitlements under Articles 5, 27 and 41


So if we take from the fact that Oracle pulled out of the ACWS, they should be fined another 150k for not attending a regatta and not be elligible for the Event (i.e. the AC) for not attending a second regatta!

Or should we conclude that they attended but lost all their matches/races?
Funny isn't it?
