How the Louis Vuitton Cup changed the sport
“We got a lot of coverage for that.” Despite the low number of challengers vying this year for the chance to go up against defender Oracle Team USA in September, Trouble is pleased with what is expected to be unprecedented coverage of the regatta by national networks led by NBC. He also said this year’s competition continues another long tradition of the Louis Vuitton Cup. “We have great memories of the big personalities involved in the Cup,” Trouble said. “All of these big personalities are a key element in the legend of the America’s Cup.” The big personalities this year include Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison , whose team won the Cup in 2010 in Valencia, Spain; Swedish tycoon Torbjorn Tornqvist of Artemis Racing; sailing legend Grant Dalton of Emirates Team New Zealand; and Patrizio Bertelli , the Italian entrepreneur and head of the fashion house Prada, whose team is Luna Rossa. Bertrand, another big personality – and the Australian who ended the longest winning streak in sports for America in the waters off Newport, R.I., in 1983 – recalled that the first Louis Vuitton series was an “intense battle (that) allowed us to raise our performance level. But above all, we needed this new trophy in order to sites win the honor of racing against the defender and carrying on the adventure.” Bertrand and his team aboard Australia II won 48 of 54 qualifying races, and beat the British syndicate Victory 83 by 4 races to 1 in the finals to go up against defender Liberty, skippered by legendary American sailor Dennis Conner . Bertrand recounted the battle against Conner: “The first team to win four heats would walk away with the oldest trophy in the world. We were down 1-3 and couldn’t afford any more mistakes.

Each time it is our challenge to get the best stone setter, the best polisher, make a team and make them work on a piece together. We are very lucky in Paris for historic reasons we have the best craftsmen in the world whose skills have been passed from one generation to another. From Louis XIV they were already making jewelry so the craftsman has passed the skills from generation to generation. How many pieces do you make per design? Some of them are unique. Some of them there will be more. It really depends. It depends also on what you mean by unique.
Dalton: We’ve improved since the Louis Vuitton Cup
We had a nosedive in Race 1 and then that electrical battery failure in Race 2, but we were just faster. And we were eventually going to wear them down. It happened to us in 2007. We were 2-1 up at one stage against Alinghi, but they were just a bit faster and itll eventually wear you down. And that will happen here. The fastest boat will ultimately wear the other one down. Although Dalton wouldnt put a numerical value on his teams improvement, he did discuss a couple of the notable changes on Aotearoa . When the teams AC72 emerged from the boatshed last week after four days of modifications, it featured a pair of spoilers on the aft crossbeam and a large foredeck on the bowsprit, similar to the one on ORACLE TEAM USA. If you end plate the jib you create a downward force, said Dalton.
