How Much Do You Know?
New year, new Cup, new rules. “Stripped down and simplified,
the rules of the 34th America’s Cup were designed to be easier to
understand by the spectators and sailors alike,” says director of
umpiring and rules administration Mike Martin of Mill Valley. He
should know, since he was part of the team that rewrote the rules.
His motivation? The world will be watching, the races will be
televised and, oh, there is that little detail about how to handle the
fastest boats the Cup’s ever seen. S TEPHANIE MAR TIN
