The 27th America’s Cup 1988
After Sir Michael Fay had lost the LVC Final in 1987 he tried to press Dennis Conner by a challenge on the very short notice of 1988. Conner denied the challenge.The following court actions and decision were not as far as numerous as in the AC33 but confusing enough. The first decision fined the San Diego YC to accept NZLs challenge. The next appeal that the catamaran should be eliminated as an unfair yacht - ordered both “to find that out on the water”. US -1 won 2 : 0. NZL approached the New York Court again and was declared as winner in two instances. The appealed Supreme Court decided finally for the US YC as winner.
