America Cup May Be Held In Ras al-Khaimah

ImageThe America Cup may be held in the Middle East for the first time in its 158 year history.  UK and France media reported that the current cup holder – Swiss team Alinghi and Society Nautique de Geneve have made an agreement with Ras al-Khaimah to hold the race there in February 2010.  The cup challenger, San Fransisco based BMW-Oracle, will probably oppose the move. 

Alinghi, as cup holder, is required to give the race challenger six months notice about the race course venue – so they must make their choice known by 8 August 2009.   More than 80% of the 300,000 people living in Ras al-Khaimah live in one city.   If it is chosen as host location for the America Cup, it will be a huge boost.  Should the choice be confirmed, it is expected Oracle will quickly appeal to the court to block the Middle East Venue.
