Rites of Spring

Rites of Spring
Pomp, polish and parties the tradition of Sailpast signals a new boating season and salutes the origin of the yacht club. An excerpt - By Marianne Scott

EACH YEAR, ON THE LAST SATURDAY IN APRIL, the Royal Victoria Yacht Club holds its "Opening Day" ceremonies.

OPENING DAY CEREMONIES grew out of British traditions and, at least initially, the love of kings for their megayachts. We might believe that the super-yachts we see afloat today are modern inventions, but pleasure craft measuring 100 feet or more have been around since the time of Cleopatra, whose sumptuous barge with its gilded stern and purple linen sails wowed the populace and beguiled Anthony.
Until the 18th century, yachts were mostly reserved for royalty. The regal yachts were often used as "ships of state," and as a symbol of power, wealth and pomp. Then, the Industrial Revolution triggered by the steam engine, generated great wealth and allowed nouveaux riches industrialists to join in a…

Yachting: Dueling America's Cup sides may meet
Wednesday, 15 April 2009
Defending America's Cup champions Alinghi have invited US team Oracle to a meeting next week in Geneva to discuss the format and rules of the 33rd edition of the sailing event, an Alinghi spokeswoman said yesterday.
The invitation was sent yesterday by the Societe Nautique de Geneve (SNG) which represents the Swiss side to the San Francisco-based Golden Gate Yacht Club (GGYC) which represents Oracle, the spokeswoman told AFP.
The two sides have been locked into a long legal battle over the rules for the next edition of yachting's premier event.
Alinghi's invitation comes less than two weeks after a New York court backed Oracle over Alinghi, opening the way to a best-of-three duel between the two clubs involving multihull yachts in Valencia in eastern Spain where Alinghi won the last America's Cup in 2007.
But last week Oracle said negotiations were underway with Alinghi to hold a traditional regat…

The lengthy legal tussle between America’s Cup sailing teams BMW Oracle Racing and Alinghi over who has the right to challenge Alinghi for the next Cup appears to have taken a decisive tack in BMW Oracle's favor.

On Thursday, the New York State Court of Appeals ruled that BMW Oracle, the American-based syndicate that represents Golden Gate Yacht Club in San Francisco, should be restored as challenger of record for the oldest major trophy in international sport.

The verdict, a unanimous 6-0 decision, overturned a ruling last year that would have allowed the Spanish-based Club Nautico Español de Vela, or CNEV, to remain Alinghi's primary challenger.

The decision opens the way for an unconventional Cup at some stage in the next year in which BMW Oracle and Alinghi could face each other in a best-of-three regatta in massive, new-age catamarans. But there is also the possibility that Alinghi’s owner, Ernesto Bertarelli, and Larry Ellison, his counterpart at BMW Oracle, could, with the…
