Following the end of the ACM concession on the America's Cup bases in Valencia Port in December 2007. The Valencia Mayoress, Rita Barbera, has been meeting with the local Economy Conseller to study the possibility of returning the dock to its normal function.

Valencia Mayoress Rita Barbera has stated that there is a clear willingness on the part of Americas Cup Management to allow the dock in Valencia Port to be exploited by the 2007 Consortium until a date has clearly been set for the next edition of the Americas Cup races, in the light of the fact that the concession of the dock to ACM ended on December 31 2007.

Mrs Barbera added that she hoped it would become operational by the Spring.

The Mayoress made this statement just before she started a meeting with Jorge Bellver, the Urbanizing Councillor, and added that on Monday she had had a meeting with Cristobal Grau, the Sports Councillor to learn of the state of affairs regarding the dock following the 32nd edition of the Americas Cup.

The dock is also now the scene of the works necessary for the Formula 1 race and the platform bridge was being dismantled yesterday.

In a later meeting with Gerardo Camps the Economy Conseller, Mrs Barbera studied the possibility of returning the dock to its normal function
