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.
