A simple guide
With sponsor names, boat names, sail numbers and official syndicate names, let alone the various nicknames that have been cropping up, it’s difficult to keep track of who’s being talked about. So, to clear things up, here’s a list of the boats that each of the teams are using in Round Robin one along with their sail numbers, the team name and then the yacht name as declared at the beginning of the event.
USA 67 OneWorld Challenge – One World
SUI 64 Alinghi Challenge – Alinghi
USA 76 Oracle BMW Racing – USA-76
SWE 63 Victory Challenge – ORN
ITA 74 Prada Challenge – Luna Rossa
USA 66 Team Dennis Conner – Stars & Stripes
GBR 70 GBR Challenge – Wight Lightning
ITA 72 Mascalzone Latino – Mascalzone Latino
FRA 69 Le Défi Areva – Le Défi
After the first Round Robin teams can chose to sail a different boat so the sail numbers may change.
