America's Cup video: Oracle, Emirates New Zealand, and USA 76

America's Cup: Oracle, Emirates New Zealand, and USA 76, June 21 2013 - YouTube: "Published on Jun 22, 2013 Great boat handling with foiling gybes!"

America's Cup dispute could end up in court - SFGate: "Sources close to the negotiations told The Chronicle that Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa consider the elevators used by Oracle and Artemis illegal and could take the matter to court depending on a possible verdict by the AC jury. The Oracle/Artemis elevators have ailerons, like the movable flaps on airplane wings. The New Zealand/Luna Rossa ones don't. America's Cup spokesman Tim Jeffery said that all the parties are contractually obligated to accept the jury's ruling. However, the sources said the matter could be brought to the New York State Supreme Court, the guardian of the America's Cup's originating document, known as the "Deed of Gift," on the grounds that the jury has overstepped its jurisdiction."
