Until then, teams had organized – and paid for – the America’s Cup selection series themselves. “The concept arose from the fact that we challengers were tired of footing the bill for the organization of the qualifying regatta,” Trouble said. “It occurred to me that instead of spending money on the selection process, we should find a partner.

Victoria Beckham spiced up her life on Sunday by attending the Wimbledon Men’s Final.

We’re sure Golden Balls couldn’t wait for his wifey to get home to show her a grand slam of a good time!
Walking Tall: Inside Louis Vuitton’s shoe factory
There is little hierarchy on the shop floor. ‘Everyone has their own reason for being here,’ Alfandary says. ‘They are empowered to take responsibility for what they do. It’s not masters and artisans.’ On the tour I took around the workshops everybody was happy to stop and show me what they were doing, keen to impress with their immaculate workmanship (‘The reason why everyone wants to show you what they do,’ Alfandary says, ‘is because they do it perfectly’), whether it was precisely cutting a boot upper out of leather by hand; skiving the insole, which means scraping off a millimetre of the leather around the insole to give an even finish; hammering minute holes into soft suede uppers to make a pattern; hand-stitching the Louis Vuitton label inside the insole (Stefania, another artisan, threads a needle and stitches the label in before gluing the end of the thread and pressing a patch of tape over it so that it doesn’t make the slightest bump that could cause discomfort); screwing the heel into the shoe; attaching a padlock on the back of a pair of Oh Really! high-heel court shoes (named because Marc Jacobs’s response to most things is ‘Oh, really?); or wrapping the finished shoe in the softest recycled tissue paper to ensure it is not damaged in transit. The workshop at Fiesso is a self-contained, fully integrated unit.

The racers sometimes feels as if sailing in hurricane force winds with fire hoses spraying in their faces and the world has seen the catastrophic cartwheels and crashes in the past year. The bigger they are the harder they fall. Today the wind sometimes spiked faster than the race allows but didnt last long enough to invoke intervention. Yet safety remains a primary concern and if the wind reaches a certain speed on the bay, the race must be postponed. The wind can blow up to twenty knots, or 22.1 considering the tide. Thats pre-start and the wind speed must be over the limit for thirty seconds on average.

“When we get into the knock-out stages later on we do have consecutive races where you have to recover quickly and be able to turn up 100 per cent the next day,” he said. Barker will be looking for the same slick work from his crew as they demonstrated in yesterday’s showdown. While the Italian team struggled with their manoeuvres, Team NZ were impressive around the course having perfected the art of pulling off flying gybes. Tactician Ray Davies said the presence of another boat out on the course proved strong motivation to ensure the team kept pushing hard. “We’re always trying our best and today it just felt like we clicked better than the other two days again and we’ve just got to work on improving all the time,” said Davies. The Kiwi team’s slickest manoeuvre came in the pre-start, where some clever work by Barker saw him win leeward position, trapping the Italians in the start-box. From there, Davies said the race was “meat and potatoes”.
