Louis Vuitton Paying $3M Less For America’s Cup Sponsorship
And with its cavernous interior, versatile side drawstrings to adjust the shape of the bag, and impeccable construction (this is Louis Vuitton, after all), it might just be the perfect carryall. So you can imagine our excitement when we learned that for the first time, the iconic French brand released a collection of Neverfull totes in a dazzling array of colored Epi leather. Now, you may be asking what’s so hot about Epi leather, especially since it’s ribbed and structured rather than soft and supple. That raised texture means that it can withstand a beating (read: this bag knows how much it’s going to be used, and it’s ready to last a lifetime). But the best part about this new collection just may be the colors. You can now get a Neverfull in seven hues, from bright blue to deep red and brilliant orange. If there’s a way to add an instant burst of chromatic personality to your outfit, this is it. We love the idea of the blue for Summer perfectly paired with a white sundress but if you’re looking to get a little more mileage out of your bag, we could totally see carrying the purple or red Neverfull straight into Fall.

In Wirapol’s case, investigators believe they have only scratched the surface. Born in the poor northeastern province of Ubon Ratchathani, he entered the monkhood as a teenager and gained local renown for claims of supernatural powers like the ability to fly, walk on water and talk to deities. He renamed himself, Luang Pu Nen Kham, taking on a self-bestowed title normally reserved for elder monks. Gradually, he cultivated wealthy followers to help fund expensive projects in the name of Buddhism – building temples, hospitals and what was touted as the world’s largest Emerald Buddha. The 11-meter (36-foot) high Buddha was built at his temple in the northeast, touted as solid jade but made of tinted concrete. Thailand’s Anti-Money Laundering Office has discovered 41 bank accounts linked to the ex-monk. Several of the accounts kept about 200 million baht ($6.4 million) in constant circulation, raising suspicion of money laundering.

Four of the wins have been forfeits – over Luna Rossa in the first round and three times against Swedish entry Artemis Racing, who are yet to sail a race. With just five races remaining in the series, Team NZ can’t be headed and are guaranteed a berth in the best-of-13 final starting on August 17. The winners of the final go on to challenge Oracle USA for the America’s Cup in September. The third on-water race between Team NZ and Luna Rossa on Thursday followed a similar script, with the skipper Dean Barker winning a tight pre-start and opening up a 21sec advantage by the first mark. They pulled steadily clear, making the biggest gains on the upwind legs of the race in winds that hovered between 15 and 19 knots. Team NZ’s top speed of 39.5 knots eclipsed the Italian’s best of 36.6 knots. They averaged more than one minute advantage across each of the seven legs, clocking a winning margin of 7min 14sec. Luna Rossa’s hopes weren’t helped by an accident on the way to the start line. A low tide saw them drag a rudder along the bed of the Bay, forcing them to return to dock for quick repairs. Team NZ’s opponents in the Louis Vuitton Cup final will be either Luna Rossa or Artemis Racing.
Team NZ through to challengers final
New Zealand beat Italy by 5:23 on July 13, although Luna Rossa was ruled DNF. Luna Rossa sailed a closer race on Sunday, losing by 2:19. On Tuesday, the Italians were beaten in the pre-start maneuver and were badly off the pace. Grinder Giles Scott said the crew was disappointed. Weve got an awful lot to work on, Scott said. Although the delta still seems substantial, were moving forward and things are getting better. But clearly weve got a lot to do to get to where we need to be. We cant hide from the fact that, at the moment, the Kiwis are the class act. When the Italians launched their 72-foot catamaran in low tide, the port rudder hit bottom.

But he said sponsorships of this type are generally worth tens of millions of dollars. He added that the reduced sponsorship fee wont affect the sailing. Louis Vuitton has sponsored the challenger series since 1983. The regatta has gotten off to a troubled start. Artemis Racings Andrew Bart Simpson was killed in a capsize on May 9 that destroyed the Swedish-based syndicates first boat. Artemis is still about a week away from beginning sea trials on its second boat and might not be ready to sail until the Louis Vuitton Cup semifinals in early August. Although the Louis Vuitton Cup started Sunday, Saturday will be the first time two boats have been together on the race course together when Emirates Team New Zealand is scheduled to face Italys Luna Rossa. The Italians boycotted the opening race against the Kiwis on Sunday while they awaited an international jurys decision on a rules spat. Team New Zealand sailed around the course alone that day to collect the first point of the regatta. The Kiwis also sailed around alone on Tuesday when Artemis was their scheduled opponent, and the Italians did the same on Thursday.

7. “In general, today there were no glaring mistakes, but we know we can keep doing better,” Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker said. “We go out there to race as hard as we can every time. It’s not a case of getting in front and cruising. The level we’re trying to achieve is still well above where we are now. There are a lot of improvements we can do to the boat with systems and management.” If Team New Zealand advances straight to the finals, that would leave Luna Rossa to contest the semifinals with Sweden’s Artemis Racing, which hasn’t raced yet as it prepares its second boat.
