The two syndicates pitted in a two-year legal battle over the format, timing and boats for the next America’s Cup regatta are still butting heads.

The Golden Gate Yacht Club, which hosts the Larry Ellison-led BMW Oracle Racing, claims in a press release that the Spanish yacht club Société Nautique de Genève, which hosts the Swiss-backed Alinghi team, is stalling to delay the start of racing. Société Nautique de Genève denies the charge in its own press release.
