America’s Cup to return to Valencia

November 10th, 2009

In a letter written today to New York Supreme Court Justice Kornreich following the unsuccessful discussions with the Golden Gate Yacht Club (GGYC), the America’s Cup Defender, Société Nautique de Genève (SNG), has confirmed that it will conduct a Deed of Gift Match with GGYC in February 2010 in Valencia, which is the date and venue repeatedly requested by GGYC and previously ordered by the Court.

Good news for those of us living in Spain!  There must be a few rather angry chaps down in the Gulf though.  We now will see how these boats hold up in the winter in Valencia.  I stand by my theory that the cup will be decided by whoever still has an intact boat at the end of the series.  Valencia can deliver some nasty seas this time of year. Bring it on!!!!
