Is Downey really down under? His column (Jan. 28) had us rolling in the aisles, and put the America's Cup into perfect perspective. While Rich Roberts has been doing yeoman duty in Fremantle, it's so refreshing to have your brilliant columnist Downey lighten it all up with his wry humor. JILL AMADIO Newport Beach

The 34th annual America's Cup, the winner-takes-all sailing yacht race, begins Sept. 7 in San Francisco as the contest returns to the U.S. for the first time since 1995. The City by the Bay , the eighth city to host the America's Cup competition, has been busy in the run-up to the big race. Its Summer of Racing kicked off July 4 with an opening ceremony celebration. Racing started July 7 with the Louis Vuitton Cup , the challenger series that determines which team will face the defending Oracle Team U.S.A.

Neither the San Diego Yacht Club nor the Mercury Bay Boating Club will possess the America's Cup until San Diego's appeal of a ruling awarding the sailing prize to New Zealand is settled. The appellate division of the New York Supreme Court ordered San Diego to deliver the Cup into the temporary custody of the New York Yacht Club until results of a June 8 hearing are announced.

Olin Stephens, a naval architect who designed eight America's Cup winners, along with thousands of cruising and racing yachts, has died. He was 100. The senior member of the New York Yacht Club, Stephens died Saturday in Hanover, N.H., US Sailing reported on its website, without giving a cause of death. Stephens produced designs for more than 2,200 boats, including Dorade, which won the 1931 transatlantic race, and America's Cup defenders including Ranger, Columbia, Constellation, Intrepid, Courageous and Freedom.

It seems to me that Judge Carmen Ciparik missed a fine opportunity to apply the doctrine of "judicial restraint" in the America's Cup case. Since even a judge will admit that a lawsuit is not the best way to decide a boat race, and even a lawyer would find that the behavior of both the Conner and Fay camps violated the spirit of the original gift, it might have been wiser to send this problem back to where it originated by appointing a referee such...

A week before the start of competition, the Eagle Challenge remains short on funds but long on confidence. "Here's your scoop," director Tom Omohundro told reporters at Newport Beach Friday. "I think we're going to win the America's Cup." Omohundro recently returned from Fremantle, the port suburb of Perth in Western Australia, where the boats are based. He described Eagle's headquarters as "a fantastic facility. I looked it all over and thought, 'This is too good to be true.'

Six America's Cup challengers met Thursday to affirm their support of multiple challengers in the 1988 America's Cup regatta and to question the relationship of Sail America Foundation with the San Diego Yacht Club, the current defender of the America's Cup. "We do not recognize Sail America as having any standing whatsoever," said Australian Cup veteran Alan Bond, spokesman for the group, which included representatives from Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Japan and New Zealand.

Rich Roberts' article indicated a lack of interest among prospective participants in San Diego Yacht Club's defense of the America's Cup. It seems strange that the New York Yacht Club and some of the other East Coast syndicates are not interested in defending the Cup. Could there be a connection with the New York Yacht Club's court testimony that Dennis Conner's defense against New Zealand's monohull with a catamaran was unfair?

It seems a waste for millions of dollars to be spent on developing 12-meter boats. After all, the technology isn't that beneficial to mankind and this isn't a cure for cancer. Why don't they just sail identical boats with the victory going to the best crew? GARY A. ROBB Los Angeles

The America's Cup challengers are scheduled to meet in New York today to draw for pairings in the first round of eliminations at Perth, Australia, this fall and, more important, to count heads. Thirteen challengers from six countries remain in the running, but dropouts are possible at any point if lack of money or a slow boat make the cause hopeless. Leonard Greene's rivals expected him to drop out long ago, for both reasons.
