Alinghi says it will forfeit America's Cup if BMW Oracle wins court challenge to disqualify its sails - ESPN

This is poor sportsmanship...just pull together some Swiss sailmakers and make some new sails already: "They've been in court for more than two years, and could be right up until within days of what could be the most exciting racing in the 159-year history of the America's Cup.

'We have been clear: If BMW Oracle succeeds in disqualifying the Defender's sails then there will be no Match,' Meyer said. 'Russell Coutts will have won the America's Cup for Larry Ellison without sailing.'"
