    Coutts breaks his own news embargo with these remarks yesterday? "In fact, I'm extremely confident, and we will probably get more like 10 (AC34 teams) by the time entries close at the end of March," he told journalists in Auckland. (see link below for more) Well, supposing there is no embargo, then the secretiveness of all these teams/backers/sponsors means they are all emulating Larry, by haggling to the last minute? http://tvnz.co.nz/sailing-news/oracle-expect-many-challengers-4009463
