After 800 days of legal sparring we will finally see action on the water - we hope - when the America's Cup Regatta puts the billion dollar syndicates, Oracle and Alinghi in race mode against each other.
For the past two years the America's Cup has been all about the legal battle rather than the yachting one, but now we will find out who will win this best of three series between USA 17, BMW Oracle's enormous and technologically advanced trimaran, and Alinghi's enormous and technologically advanced catamaran.
Don't hold your breath though because there is another scenario. Emirates Team New Zealand boss Grant Dalton. "What happens if these two things are going at the same speed - it can happen - and they decide to throw the throttle open and... bang! It's quite possible that no-one finishes. The Cup stays with Alinghi then... and both of them could drop their rig on the way to the first mark. It's possible."
But no matter what happens this week it's still like the loser will - yawn - go back to court for more legal challenge. Here's hoping for fair winds and resounding results.
