New Zealand to appeal
court decision on Cup
WELLINGTON, New Zealand
(AP) - New Zealand syndicate
chairman Michael Fay said
yesterday that he will attempt to
appeal a New York court decision
allowing the San Diego Yacht Club
to retain the America's Cup.
"We have always expected this
dispute would go all the way to the
final court," Fay said. "Mercury
Bay is committed to seeing it
through and we are going to win."
Fay described the court decision
as "a disgrace."
He said Mercury Bay Boating
Club's appeal, the final step in the
legal process should be completed
within four months and should not
interfere with plans to race the next
America's Cup in 1992.
In a 4- decision Tuesday, the
Appellate Division of of the New
York State Supreme Court declared
San Diego the winner of last year's
regatta, reversing a lower court
verdict that disqualified the U.S.
defender and awarded the America's
Cup to New Zealand.
"The idea that a competitor can
fix a contest to win makes a
nonsense of any sport. It is wrong,
plain and simple," Fay said.
Justice Bentley Kassal's
dissenting opinion maintained that
last year's cup races were
"manifestly unfair in every sense"
because the United States raced a
catamaran against New Zealand's
Fay said the appeals court itself
was sharply divided on fundamental
issues. "If this ruling is not
overturned, sportsmanship and the
cup are out the window," he said.
Under New York law, either the
Appellate Division or the Court of
Appeals, the state's highest court,
must give Fay permission to
appeal. George Tompkins Jr., Fay's
lawyer, said the Court of Appeals
accepts about 10 percent of the
cases it is asked to hear. Fay has 30
days in which to ask for permission
Even while the New Zealanders
were losing 2-0, they maintained
that the contest was invalid, as the
deed of gift governing the 138-year-
old contest called for the defender to
enter a boat that was similar to the
"Mercury Bay's challenge was
right, San Diego's defense was
wrong," Fay said. "Even a five year
old can understand that. There isn't
a yachtsman or a sportsman
anywhere in the world that will
agree with the other judges' ruling.'
