Congressional Cup 2008

Yesterday the racing started at the Congressional Cup 2008 at Long Beach California. Results, pictures and soon a video are posted at the website: go here. When the boats are racing you can follow them trough live audio on the Internet.

Also on the same website a document called the 2008 Congressional Cup Program. It's large file (4.3 MB PDF), but you have to read it nevertheless. Some very interesting articles on the beginning of umpiring 20 years ago at the Long Beach Yacht Club and also a glimpse of the future with an electronic "pinkie", signalling overlap and "the zone". Also an interview with Chief Umpire Jan Stage and a couple of pages on the rules.
