America's Cup Round 1 Pairings

In a random drawing in Auckland New Zealand the racing parings for round 1 were selected.  Racing begins in earnest on Monday the 18th.  Most boats will sail 2 races per day.  One boat per morning and afternoon session has a bye.  Matches will be sailed on a 12.5 mile twice around windward leeward course.  The morning race will start at 1030 Auckland time which is 0330 eastern.  Race length is expected to be 75 to 90 minutes.

A victory in a Round 1 match gains 1 point.  Later rounds award 4 and 9 points for a victory.  Round 1 should be more important for the one boat teams such as Team Dennis Conner and America True.  They must maximize their points before two boat teams can gain superiority through two boat testing and optimization.

Day One maybe significant for America True. Matches against Young America and America One  will be a test of the advantage America True has gained by launching early and sailing often in Auckland.  Young America has had less sailing time, but more design work.  America One is True's PM opponent.  Again True will face a two boat team.  In this case America One's 2nd boat is still building.  This is a situation where an America True win would give them a point in the bank while a 2 boat opponent gets cranked up.

Olympic Trials

Olympic Selection trials for several classes are scheduled to hit the water tomorrow.  However, weather produced by Hurricane Irene may cause delays.

St. Petersburg where the 49er and 470 fleets are trialing expects 20-25 knots today.  A small craft advisory is in effect.  Tonight forecasts call for 50-60 knots winds.

Melbourne Florida where the Mistral sailboards will race is expecting similar weather.
