AUCKLAND, New Zealand, December 1, 1999 – AmericaOne, the San Francisco-based St. Francis Yacht Club’s America’s Cup 2000 challenger, will continue to sail USA 49 in Round Robin 3 of the Louis Vuitton Cup. AmericaOne’s first race of the round is against FAST200, skippered by Marc Pajot. In Round Robin 3, each boat will receive nine points per win.

“We are comfortable using USA 49,” remarked AmericaOne Skipper Paul Cayard. “By not getting 61 locked into a race schedule we are able to make changes to her during the round which will speed up her optimization process.”
