America's Cup: Russell Coutts Confirms Smaller Boats... | Stuff.co.nz: " . . . Coutts gave some thoughts on the process which involves the venue and timing, the type of boats, the racing format and the general rules. There is also the need to satisfy broadcasting requirements. "The boats will likely be smaller than 72-feet with some one-design components, which will reduce the number of sailors and designers," Coutts, who is still the chief executive of Oracle, told the America's Cup website. "We believe the competition still needs to remain a test of sailing, design and boat building talent so we are carefully evaluating reductions in each category.". . ."

Anderson wins Pro Am Regatta at BEYC: ". . . . Past winners of the Pro Am trophy include Russell Coutts, Mr. Cayard, Ken Read and Ed Baird. “We at Bitter End Yacht Club couldn’t have been more excited to see Alec Anderson — a BVIslander — win the Pro Am Regatta this year,” said organiser John Glynn. “We knew he was a long shot going in, but we also knew that he had the skills to compete at that level.

The fate of the boat is more puzzling because it should have floated off the shoal on the rising tide. That would have pushed it inside the inlet toward the bayfront. Efforts to locate the sailboat should continue today but will be hampered by 4-to-6-foot seas and a gusty northeast winds." (read more at the link above)
