Download Free Dispute Resolution in the 34th America's Cup PDF by Henry Peter Full Book and published by Kluwer Law International B.V.. This book was released on 2015-11-24 with total page 866 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The America’s Cup continues to evolve as the preeminent sporting contest in the world of sailing and is one of the greatest contests in the world of sport. In its long and colorful history, disputes around the match have not only added major extra publicity to the event’s great popular appeal but also spawned a wealth of judicial and arbitral decisions that have become influential on the sport of sailing. This book - continuing the tradition of Kluwer Law International’s earlier publications on the 31st, 32nd, and 33rd America’s Cup - offers richly detailed expert commentary (along with the decision texts themselves) on the judgments of various courts and other dispute resolution bodies delivered during the tumultuous 34th America’s Cup. Since there is no official record of many of these documents, this book is the only source that presents them together in a single volume, with the added benefit of commentary. Among the aspects covered are the following: - all decisions issued by the 34th America’s Cup International Jury, as well as related decisions or awards rendered by other bodies (ISAF Disciplinary Commission, ISAF Review Board and the Court of Arbitration for Sport); - judgments of the New York Supreme Court and its Appellate Division regarding the rejection of the African Diaspora Maritime Corporation application to compete to be a defender; - the pivotal Jury decision affirming that the AC72 yacht could be made to foil on its centreboards and rudders, dramatically increasing its speed; - the first-time-ever Youth America’s Cup; and - the extensive mediation concerning safety recommendations following the death of a sailor. A general introduction surveys the most important and peculiar issues pertaining to the event. Written not only as a comprehensive legal record of the 34th America’s Cup but also with a view to favor future matches and to limit the possibilities of new controversies, the book takes a significant step toward ensuring that disputes are dealt with by arbitration and not by lengthy, costly, and uncertain state court proceedings. In this way the book provides invaluable guidance for trustees, competitors, and event officials, not only for the America’s Cup but by extension to other major international sporting events.

Download Free Arbitration in the 36th America's Cup PDF by Henry Peter Full Book and published by Kluwer Law International B.V.. This book was released on 2022-08-09 with total page 616 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: More than the most prestigious regatta and match race in the sport of sailing, the America’s Cup is a test of boat design, sail design, and management skills. It is not surprising that its passionate skippers, builders, and managers often become embroiled in disputes. Recognizing this, and the need to deal quickly and professionally with any divergency, an arbitration panel has become an established part of the Cup’s organization. This book—the fifth of a series that over time constitutes a unique corpus of decisions rendered over more than twenty years—compiles all the directions and decisions issued by the 36th America’s Cup Arbitration Panel in the context of the nineteen cases submitted to it, as well as all supporting documents elucidating the context in which the decisions were issued. In addition to all the decisions, the following are also included: the Protocol of the 36th America’s Cup and amendments made thereto; the 36th America’s Cup Arbitration Panel Rules of Procedure; applicable versions of the World Sailing Racing Rules, the AC75 Class Rule, and the so-called Prada Cup Conditions and Match Conditions; previously unpublished documents related to proceedings which have led to the amendment and/or interpretation of the Deed of Gift by the Supreme Court of the State of New York; and previously unpublished court-related material pertaining to the key Mercury Bay case (1987-1990). An extensive and valuable introduction provides detailed historical and factual context. Expert commentary addresses issues of special interest decided by the 36th America’s Cup Arbitration Panel, including privileged insight into the previously undocumented dispute resolution during the 35th America’s Cup (2013-2017) and the World Intellectual Property Organization’s Electronic Case Management Facility (ECAF). A table containing a summary of the subject matter of each decision and a keyword index help find which argument is dealt with in which decision. Because arbitration plays a key role in this context, and because what happens in the America's Cup is of general interest to the sport and arbitration communities, this book’s many insights into the kinds of issues that fuel disputes in sports events offer a significant extension of the knowledge base available to lawyers, arbitrators, and scholars in several branches of law and legal practice.

Download Free Fathoming the Ocean PDF by Helen M. Rozwadowski Full Book and published by Harvard University Press. This book was released on 2008-03-31 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: By the middle of the nineteenth century, as scientists explored the frontiers of polar regions and the atmosphere, the ocean remained silent and inaccessible. The history of how this changed—of how the depths became a scientific passion and a cultural obsession, an engineering challenge and a political attraction—is the story that unfolds in Fathoming the Ocean. In a history at once scientific and cultural, Helen Rozwadowski shows us how the Western imagination awoke to the ocean's possibilities—in maritime novels, in the popular hobby of marine biology, in the youthful sport of yachting, and in the laying of a trans-Atlantic telegraph cable. The ocean emerged as important new territory, and scientific interests intersected with those of merchant-industrialists and politicians. Rozwadowski documents the popular crazes that coincided with these interests—from children's sailor suits to the home aquarium and the surge in ocean travel. She describes how, beginning in the 1860s, oceanography moved from yachts onto the decks of oceangoing vessels, and landlubber naturalists found themselves navigating the routines of a working ship's physical and social structures. Fathoming the Ocean offers a rare and engaging look into our fascination with the deep sea and into the origins of oceanography—origins still visible in a science that focuses the efforts of physicists, chemists, geologists, biologists, and engineers on the common enterprise of understanding a vast, three-dimensional, alien space.

Download Free Gordon Bennett and the First Yacht Race Across the Atlantic PDF by Sam Jefferson Full Book and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2016-02-25 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The 1866 transatlantic yacht race was a match that saw three yachts battle their way across the Atlantic in the dead of winter in pursuit of a $90,000 prize. Six men died in the brutal and close-fought contest, and the event changed the perception of yachting from a slightly effete gentlemen's pursuit into something altogether more rugged and adventurous. The race also symbolized the beginning of America's 'gilded age', with its associated obscene wealth and largesse (the $90,000 prize put up by the three contestants is about $15 million in today's money), as well as the thawing of relations between the US and UK. The narrative focuses on the victorious yacht Henrietta and her owner James Gordon Bennett. Bennett was the son of the multimillionaire proprietor of the New York Herald, and a notorious playboy. His infamous stunts included driving his carriage through the streets of New York naked, tipping a railway porter $30,000, and turning up at his own engagement party blind drunk and mistaking the fire for a urinal, which led to the coining of the phrase 'Gordon Bennett!'. However, Bennett was also a serious yachtsman and had served with distinction during the civil war aboard Henrietta, and he was the only owner to be aboard his own boat during the race. Other characters include Bennett's captain Samuel Samuels (legendary clipper skipper, ex-convict and occasional vaudeville actor), financier Leonard Jerome, aboard Henrietta as race invigilator (he also happened to be grandfather to Winston Churchill) and Stephen Fisk, a journalist so desperate to cover the race that he evaded a summons to appear as a witness in court and instead smuggled himself aboard Henrietta in a crate of champagne. Using the framework of the race to discuss the various historical themes, there's ample drama, and the diverse and eccentric range of characters ensure that this is a book laced with plenty of human interest, scandal and adventure.

Book excerpt: From the race of the 100 Guinea Cup 1851, to a personal yacht, to an espionage boat for the Confederacy, to a blockader for the Union Navy, the trodden decks of this black schooner carries many stories. The yacht America transports the reader from a shipyard in New York City across the Atlantic to the famous race of the Royal Yacht Squadron Queens Cup of 1851, now known as the Americas Cup Race.. She became known as the Yankee schooner, raced with European yachts for several years, and in 1861 mysteriously sailed into Savannah, Georgia, carrying British colors and the Royal Victoria Yacht Clubs burgee. The Civil war had just begun. As the fifth yachts owner, Henry Decie, an Irish sagacious, gentry-man becomes acquainted with the Jefferson Davis Administration. The yacht was prostituted to transport two Confederate officers to England. One officer was to serve as a secret emissary for President Davis, while the other officer was to purchase/build abroad iron-clad warships. Henry Decie and his yacht, re-named Camilla, are captained across the Atlantic, to react with the Confederate urgent fares. However, he took time to race at the Isle of Wight. Decie left the Confederate officers unceremoniously and sailed to Dixie - stopping at the Cape de Verdes, maybe to avoid Mason and Slidell. The yacht disappeared between late1861 and early1862. She had been scuttled by the Confederates in a creek hideaway. She was found and rescued by the Union Navy vessels far upriver beyond Jacksonville, Florida. Americas celebrated life doesnt terminate in England, soon she was flying the colors of the USN as a naval blockader. For a little schooner her activities are full of intrigue. She is a proven winner of the waves, and holds an extremely important place in American yachting hist
