New Louis Vuitton Regatta in lieu of America's Cup

The Emirates Team New Zealand have invited some of the world’s top sailing teams to enter a round-robin event to be held in the inner Waitemata Harbour in Auckland, New Zealandregatta sailing as early as next January.  The annoucement is in an attempt to ‘get a little love back’ as said managing director Grant Dalton, whilst court procedures in the US have stagnated over the state of affairs surrounding the America’s Cup.  This new Louis Vuitton-sponsered yacht regatta will race the full America’s Cup sized boats and sailing teams and will be closer to land than usual offering spectators a better view of the races. It is not yet known which teams will accept the invitation to race the Emirates Team New Zealand but have until 30th October to enter.
