between 1 November and 1 May must take place in the Southern Hemisphere, Justice Cahn's 12 May 2008 New York Supreme Court Order 'that the location of the match be in Valencia or any other location selected by the SNG' led [us] to select Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates."
Alinghi has decided on Ras Al Khaimah to stage the 33rd America's Cup

is the biggest goal left for me now.
