Golden Gate Yacht Club Reveals Case Against Société Nautique de Genève

In fresh documentation made available on their website, Golden Gate Yacht Club (GGYC) have revealed the specifics of their case against Société Nautique de Genève (SNG).

The comprehensive documents make quite a case against the 33rd Protocol and the actions of SNG & Club Náutico Español de Vela (CNEV). One aspect noted SNG's alleged scheme to avoid adjudication by the New York Supreme Court by resigning its role as defender in a timescale preventing all but the previous cup holder from becoming defender, in which case Emirates Team New Zealand would become defender and would then elect SNG as Challenger Of Record (source: GGYC Memorandum of law, Section IV, C, Page 18).

The comprehensive documentation may be downloaded from GGYC's website and read via the following links:
