Coupe de l’America. Le rendez-vous des AC75 à Cagliari annulé

AC75 Luna Rossa Launch

Le Chalenger of Record, l’équipe Italienne Luna Rossa, a demandé l’annulation du premier Act des America’s Cup World Serie qu’il organisait à Cagliari compte tenu du COVID-19 qui sévit en Italie. L’évènement est annulé sans préciser de nouvelle date au grand dam des Italiens qui ont demandé à Team New Zealand, le Defender, de pouvoir trouver une nouvelle date mais ceux-ci ont refusé de répondre. Les Italiens ont donc saisi le tribunal arbitral pour obtenir de pouvoir l’organiser.

Cagliari, 13 March 2020 – Due to “force majeure” – following the declaration of the Pandemic CoViD19 by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the restrictions imposed by the different governments – COR 36 has declared the impossibility of organizing the ACWS Sardinia – Cagliari (23-26 April) event at the scheduled date. COR 36 also submitted a proposal to the Defender to postpone the event to a new date.
The Defender published a press release in which it announced the cancellation of the ACWS Sardinia – Cagliari without mentioning COR’s proposal of a new date for the event, and refused COR’s proposal without even discussing it.
COR 36 will submit to the Arbitration Panel the postponement of the ACWS Sardinia – Cagliari to a new date.
