Getting there....

With the dust settling on the 33rd America’s Cup, so today we are going to be looking at what happens next. First, Russell Coutts says, he needs a holiday. Then it will be a case of meeting with the potential challengers to discuss plans for the future – type of boat, the format, dates, venue, etc. The best guess suggest Newport or San Francisco in 2013. Meanwhile on Sydney Harbour, the JJ Giltinan Championship is into day four with the ever-consistent Michael Coxon leading. If you have anything to sell - subscribers now get free classified ads.

Agreed. Make it happen

Agreed. Make it happen Russell!

Seems to me that we're all

Seems to me that we're all overlooking a great AC34 venue - Key West - which would be viable in a "mutual consent" match in the Northern Hemisphere winter. Think about it; spectacular visual location, infrastructure to support an event of this size, mix of breeze conditions but with a bias towards breeze on and last but not least...much of the racing could be broadcast live in Prime Time in Europe. What could be better?
