America's Cup: The Dubai Challenge?

Butterworth stays with Alinghi, Coutts needs a ride!

Could Russell Coutts go to Dubai for the cash to make a new team for the next America’s Cup? We know that country has plenty of money to throw down. What would the benefit be for Dubai? How about world wide exposure and a chance to bring the Cup to Dubailand! They have already paid a ton of money to have Formula 1 come to their country, they are building the biggest tower in the world plus some islands, so why not the America’s Cup also? Coutts spends plenty of time in Dubai with his RC 44 and I’m sure he has made some friends that can pay for him to play. So what will it be Russell… Oracle or Dubai? -SK
