    GGYC Now Committed to Deed of Gift Challenge

    Valencia, Spain29 December 2007: The Golden Gate Yacht Club (GGYC) said

    today it will compete for the next America’s Cup according to the basic rules of the

    Deed of Gift, and will seek to have an upcoming Court Order confirm the regatta for

    October 2008.



    “It is time to move on and know where we stand,” Russell Coutts, CEO of the club’s

    BMW ORACLE Racing team, said. “We had hoped to negotiate a conventional regat-
    ta under the Deed’s mutual consent provisions. But the Defender has made it clear to

    us and the America’s Cup community that they will not negotiate. We are now fully

    committed to a multihull event in 2008.



    “If we are able to win, and Valencia and Spain are supportive, we would return to a

    conventional America’s Cup regatta in Valencia in 2011 with fair and transparent

    rules agreed with the challengers by mutual consent,” he said.



    On January 14th the New York State Supreme Court will review the Court Order to

    give effect to its November 27th ruling in favor of the GGYC. The club wants to have

    the Deed of Gift regatta as soon as possible and has asked the Court to provide for this.



    The club has made a number of attempts before and since the Court’s
    November 27th ruling to negotiate a conventional regatta, but the
    defender has declined on each occasion to take up these offers.

    Ist das nicht toll? Beide Partner sind so richtig zufrieden mit dem Gerichtstag. Hätte man besser auch noch den Richter befragt, ob er auch zufrieden war.

    Ein perfektes Glück und alle Streithammel könnten sich noch ein paar tolle und so richtig erfreuliche Tage vor dem NY Gericht gönnen.

    Haben wir diese Farce verdient?

    Breaking news: Alinghi's two training catamarans just arrived in Valencia


    Alinghi's two training catamarans arrived in Valencia at around 4pm, on Mon-
    day, January 14. They have been deposited in the former China Team base.

    According to our information, since China Team was the only syndicate from
    the 32nd America's Cup to have moved out, the base was available and
    the defender rented it. This makes sense because access to the Alinghi
    base has been disrupted due to the ongoing works for the Formula 1 race
    track.

    The two Extreme 40 catamarans will be fitted out in that base, according to
    very reliable but unofficial sources.

    Last but not least, a funny incident took place during the arrival of the two
    yachts. There were 4-5 men wearing Alinghi t-shirts but at the sight of the
    cameras they took them off!!!

    Regarding the usage of the term “keel yacht” there are several points that should be emphasized.

    1. The meanings of words describing maritime subjects have varied over time, geographical area and specific subcultures. In particular, the area of yacht racing has its own vocabulary that distinguishes it from other maritime groups. The word “keel” for example has several meanings.
    To a shipbuilder it means the central longitudinal structural member of the ship. To someone interested in the history and preservation of traditional English working boats, a keel is a specific type of flat-bottomed barge, such as the Humber Keel. To a yachtsman, a keel is a portion of the yacht’s hull, or a separate appendage, usually containing lead or iron ballast, which provides the hydrodynamic lift and stability required to allow a sailing yacht to sail upwind in an efficient manner.

    2. A correct interpretation of the term “keel yacht” requires that the historical context (America’s Cup racing), location (primarily New York) and target population (racing sailors, yacht designers) are taken into account.

    3. Although the term “yacht” can now refer to either a sailing yacht or a motor yacht, the origin of the term (the Dutch jaght) dates back several centuries. Prior to the early part of the 19th century, a yacht referred solely to a vessel powered by sails. During the 19th century, a yacht was assumed to be a sailing yacht, with power yachts referred to as “steam yachts”.

    4. “Keel yacht” is a term that dates back to at least the 1850’s, however its primary usage was in the U.S. due to the need to distinguish centerboard yachts (the most common type in the U.S.) from yachts with fixed keels.

    5. In contrast, the term “keel yacht” was not a common expression in England, simply because the British Yacht Racing Association (later the Royal Yachting Association) expressly prohibited yachts with centerboards or sliding keels from racing. As a result, all English racing yachts were effectively keel yachts, making the more detailed term superfluous.

    6. The terms “keelboat” and “keel boat” have an equally long history, however their usage is far more widespread. The reason for this is that the term “boat” originally described a small, undecked or partially-decked vessel capable of being carried on a ship or yacht. This meant that a boat typically did not carry ballast or have a particularly deep keel. As a result, when small sailing boats began to be raced competitively and some were given ballasted keels, they were referred to as “keel boats” to distinguish them from shallow, unballasted and possibly centerboard boats. This situation occurred in a large number of countries resulting in the widespread adoption of the word keelboat.
    This has carried over into the modern day with the smaller ballasted yachts being referred to with the generic term keelboat, including International and former Olympic class keelboats such as the Dragon, 5.5 metre and Soling.

    7. Within the 19th Century yachting community, the terms “keel yacht” and “keel boat” were often used interchangeably to describe larger yachts, with the New York Times repeatedly referring to the America’s Cup defenders of the 1890’s, some of the largest racing yachts ever built, as “keel boats”.

    For example - Special to The New York Times. August 20, 1903- “Yachts That Have Challenged for and Defended the Trophy Since 1851.
    The defending yachts down to and including Vigilant in 1893, with the exception of Sappho, which was a defender in two of the runs in the series of 1871, and which was a keel yacht, were center-board boats. Defender, in 1895, was a keel yacht and so have been all her survivors. The challenging yachts have all been keel boats with the exception of Atalanta.”

    Note that in the above quotes, the terms “yacht” and “boat” are used interchangeably, as are the more specific terms “keel boat” and “keel yacht”. This commonality of meaning has continued through to today.

    The historical distinction between center boarders and keel yachts is an important one. The centerboarder was the subject of significant national pride in the U.S. to the extent that prior to 1895, only one U.S. defender had been a keel yacht, with all others being centerboarders. The construction of Defender as a deep keel yacht for the 1895 cup met with significant resistance amongst U.S. yachtsmen.

    This protectiveness of the national type was so great that the third Deed of Gift for the America’s Cup contained a clause stating that centerboard and sliding keel vessels would always be allowed to sail in the Cup races. This clause was inserted due to a real concern that if the English won the America’s Cup they may prohibit centerboarders from competing, placing the U.S. at a significant disadvantage.

    The references to centerboard yachts and sliding keel yachts in these articles and in the Deed of Gift make it very clear that in the context of the first 50 years of America’s Cup racing, the meaning of “keel yacht” was very specifically a ballasted, monohull sailing yacht that did not have a centerboard or sliding keel.

    With the waning popularity of large centerboard yachts in the U.S. at the start of the 20th century and the widespread adoption of the ballasted keel yacht, the term “keel yacht” was seen on its own less often. Instead, it became the basis for a wider taxonomy, with additional descriptors being added to differentiate the wide range of keel designs available.

    For example, a Google search for “keel yacht” will give results for

    · full-keel yachts,
    · fin-keel yachts,
    · bulb-keel yachts,
    · bilge-keel yachts,
    · long-keel yachts,
    · twin-keel yachts,
    · tandem-keel yachts,
    · winged-keel yachts.


    All of these terms, however, refer to ballasted, monohull yachts without centerboards.
    The term “keel yacht” is still widely used and has a clear and specific meaning to yachtsmen – a ballasted, monohull sailing yacht, not a centerboarder and not a multihull. That the term has retained its meaning to the present day is illustrated by an article from the New York Times in 1988 describing the Mercury Bay Challenge for the America’s Cup -

    WORKS IN PROGRESS; The Hull Story By BRUCE WEBER - Published: New York Times, February 21, 1988
    THE MYSTERY AT THE HEART of the yachting world's raging controversy is scheduled for unveiling March 27, when Michael Fay, a New Zealand investment banker, is to launch the boat with which he'll compete for the America's Cup in September.

    Fay's challenge, filed last July on behalf of the Mercury Bay Boating Club of Whitianga, was based on a strict reading of the America's Cup Deed of Gift, which allows the challenger to determine the waterline length of the boats to be raced. Spurning the traditional 12-meter yachts that have sailed in Cup competitions since 1958, Fay specified that his boat would be nearly twice as long, a single-masted, sloop-rigged keel yacht measuring 90 feet at the water line. The Cup's current holder, the San Diego Yacht Club (S.D.Y.C.), claimed the Mercury bid was invalid. But last fall, the New York State Supreme Court upheld it. In response, the S.D.Y.C. declared it would accept no other Cup challengers, angering international yachtsmen eager to compete. And recently, Sail America, the organization that manages the S.D.Y.C., announced it was building two boats as potential Cup defenders. Both are multihulled, which gives both an advantage over the New Zealand challenger.

    In this article, the S.D.Y.C. yachts are referred to as multihulled, however there is no need to state that Fay’s boat is a monohull. The description “single-masted, sloop-rigged keel yacht” is clearly sufficient to fully define the nature of the yacht.

    Multihulls
    If a Google search, using quotes to preserve word order, is performed for the term “multihull keel yacht”, no results are found. If a Google search is performed for the term “trimaran keel yacht”, no results are found. If a Google search is performed for the term “catamaran keel yacht”, no results are found.
    This is not to say, however, that the term “yacht” cannot apply to a multihull. There are many large catamarans and trimarans, both power and sail, that are commonly called yachts.
    Similarly, multihulls are not excluded from having appendages that can be referred to as keels. Some production catamarans have fixed fin keels, although in many cases these are not very deep and merely provide a surface that the boat can rest on when settling onto hard ground such as a beach. I am not aware of any multihulls having a fixed keel that contains any significant level of ballast.
    In general, however, racing catamarans do not use fixed keels, and are unlikely to ballast their centerboards or daggerboards other than to counteract the natural buoyancy of the board.
    It is clear that, traditionally, the term “keel yacht” has not been applied to multihull yachts, and that the meaning of the expression has not changed significantly since the early days of yachting. To a yachtsman or yacht designer the term has a clear and specific meaning that would exclude it from describing anything other than a ballasted monohull with a fixed keel.
    The rapid adoption of canting keel systems has radically changed yacht design over the past few years, however the terminology has been adapted simply by referring to these designs generally as canting-keel yachts, or more specifically, CBTF (canting ballast twin foil) yachts. Canting keel yachts can have daggerboards or centerboards in addition to their hinging keel. This does not change the meaning of the simple “keel yacht” descriptor and the term continues to describe the vast number of monohull yachts in the world that have fixed ballast keels.
