No time



The song ‘No Time’ by The Guess Who came to mind when considering some of the information provided by the Alinghi team on Thursday, April 24, 2008 when they welcomed the media into their compound and announced that Ernesto Bertarelli had committed to building a multihull for the 33rd America’s Cup, according to Brad Butterworth, team skipper and tactician, “as long as we can get the pending issues resolved by the New York courts – including a race date in 2009.” What is interesting to note is that the team also published a timeline on the process to build a maxi-multihull, which stated that their plan required a fifteen months.

The question that comes to mind is that if the Deed of Gift gives each team ten months from date of challenge, and that their design and construction plan takes fifteen months, it would seem that there is a problem. To solve the problem, it would seem that either there needs to be more time than ten months or a simpler design and construction plan. What is not known is how far into their fifteen month plan they are, and whether their legal maneuvers in the NY courts are to defend their position, or to just provide them the extra time needed to complete their multihull.

NO TIME (Bachman-Cummings)
No time left for you
On my way to better things
No time left for you
I’ll find myself some wings
No time left for you
Distant roads are calling me
No time left for you.

No time for a summer friend
No time for the love you send
Seasons change and so did I
You need not wonder why
You need not wonder why
There’s no time left for you
No time left for you.

No time left for you
On my way to better things
No time left for you
I’ll find myself some wings
No time left for you
Distant roads are calling me
No time left for you.

No time for a gentle rain
No time for my watch and chain
No time for revolving doors
No time for the killing floor
No time for the killing floor
There’s no time left for you
No time left for you.

No time for a summer friend
No time for the love you send
Seasons change and so did I
You need not wonder why
You need not wonder why
There’s no time left for you
No time left for you.

No Time, No Time, No Time, No Time
No Time, No Time, No Time, No Time

I got, got, got, got no time
I got, got, got, got no time
I got, got, got, got no time
