These are the top four teams racing for the 2007 America's Cup.
1. Alinghi ( Switzerland)
The defending champs no longer have three-time winner Russell Coutts in charge. Can Peter Holmberg and three-time Olympic gold medalist Jochen Schuemann share the helm and keep the Cup?
2. BMW Oracle Racing ( U.S.)
Larry Ellison is bound to win someday. With round-the-world Volvo Ocean Race winner John Kostecki and New Zealand's Chris Dickson in the afterguard, there's a good chance it will be 2007.
3. Emirates Team New Zealand
Winner of the 2000 title, New Zealand desperately wants the Cup back. Keeping talent from jumping ship has been a problem.
4. Luna Rossa ( Italy)
The former Prada team, a serious challenger in Cups past, just signed James Spithill of Australia, the world's No. 2 match-race sailor.
