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?

When it comes to fostering good will in the international sailing community, the San Diego Yacht Club and Sail America Foundation seem to be right there with the good old New York Yacht Club. The San Diego team's announcement Wednesday that it planned to exclude all but New Zealand from a court-enforced challenge in 1988 came across to most of the English-speaking sailing world Thursday as a typically imperious attitude by a custodian of the America's Cup.

I am amazed that no one on your staff has yet appreciated the true genius of Mr. Conner in his America's Cup adventures. He suffered the slings of outrageous criticism, lured the Kiwis and Kookas into a false sense of security, and then, when it was too late for them to adjust, unleashed his boat and has triumphantly returned the Cup to his own home port. It is now clear that he lost the Cup intentionally in 1983 in order to pry it loose from the stodgy NYYC, for which all true yachting fans must give him thanks.
