Louis Vuitton Cup – Luna Rossa non riparte: New Zealand allunga
Each time it is our challenge to get the best stone setter, the best polisher, make a team and make them work on a piece together. We are very lucky in Paris for historic reasons we have the best craftsmen in the world whose skills have been passed from one generation to another. From Louis XIV they were already making jewelry so the craftsman has passed the skills from generation to generation. How many pieces do you make per design? Some of them are unique. Some of them there will be more. It really depends.
They lasted not much longer than the second turning mark until a big bang indicated that a piece of mast control gear had failed, ending their race. That leaves the Kiwis leading 2-1 in the best of 13 and, as there is no racing scheduled for Tuesday, the shore crews will have time to crawl all their cold, hard but complex and fragile charges. The wind limits imposed after the death of British crewman Andrew Simpson are still proving difficult for an event that aimed to eliminate postponements, meet television schedules, and started with the aim of being able to compete in anything from three to 33 knots. A hearing to investigate gross misconduct by the Americas Cup defender Oracle Team USA (OTUSA) is to be held by the five-person international jury appointed to oversee the event as soon as possible. It involves prohibited structural modifications to the 45-foot versions of the new 72-foot boats which were used in the Americas Cup World Series. Oracle and its stablemate Ben Ainslie Racing have already retrospectively retired from the final four ACWS regattas staged in Newport RI and San Francisco. The jury has also announced that it will then hold a hearing into whether these actions have damaged the reputation of the Americas Cup, which is prohibited under the protocol which governs this years 34th defence. Penalties could be against individuals or teams and run from bans from all competitions to forfeiting wins in the best of 17 cup match which begins on 7 September.

Louis Vuitton Cup: Predictwind – Winds expected to be over the limit
LVMH Chief Executive Bernard Arnault, France’s richest man, said in January that Louis Vuitton’s slowdown was voluntary and the brand had put the brakes on opening new shops to preserve its exclusivity. At (source) that time, Arnault publicly admitted for the first time that Louis Vuitton, LVMH’s biggest contributor to profits, was at risk of being too ubiquitous. To counter that perception, Arnault said the brand would move upscale and expand its leather bag offering while pruning its portfolio of LV-embossed canvas bags which make up two third of its business and generate gross margins of around 90 percent. LVMH Finance Director Jean-Jacques Guiony on Friday said Louis Vuitton’s margins rose in the first half, both at the operating and gross level, reversing a decline which analysts estimate started two or three years ago. “People feared that less canvas and more leather could impact Louis Vuitton’s margins,” said Exane BNP Paribas analyst Luca Solca.
