34th AC Designers Metting

The serious business for the 34th America's Cup has just started in Valencia with the first designer meeting in view of establishing a new design rule. The who's who of international yacht design gathered at the BMW Oracle base at 9:30am for a long discussion.
As the title of this post implies, this is the first part of today's report and for the moment it only consists of photos of the group leisurly chatting over coffee and croissants, waiting for Russell Coutts.
Once the CEO of the 34th America's Cup Defender came, the entire group moved to a conference room where Ian Burns made a brief introduction.
The attendance by Vrolijk is the first tangible sign of interest by Team Alinghi in the 34th America's Cup, since losing the trophy to Golden Gate Yacht Club in February 2010.

That's when the doors closed and I had to leave. The meeting will now go on until 4:30pm and I will be back to talk to Ian Burns and any other designer willing to talk.
