"I don't want to talk about it. The hearing will be [Oct. 31]. There's a number of errors ranging from where the course area was, the length of course, as well as procedural errors. Correct me if I'm wrong but it's probably the first America's Cup race that's gone round an island since 1851. We certainly didn't expect to be sailing round islands and through headlands. Had we known that we probably would have had a different set of charts on board."
--Ian Walker, GBR Challenge helmsman, on the team's Oct. 30 race against Alinghi. GBR Challenge filed for redress and received it from the International Jury. The race was to be resailed over the weekend.
