The Rhode Island Economic Development Corp. said the state is still in the running to host the America's Cup in 2013.

At the corporation's last meeting, Keith Stokes, chairman of the Rhode Island America's Cup 34th planning committee and executive director of the corporation, presented a letter of interest from defending Cup champion BMW Oracle Racing COO Steve Barclay, the corporation said in a posting today on its website.

Stokes also said the Newport Chamber of Commerce retained an agency to complete an initial economic impact analysis of the costs and benefits of Newport hosting the Cup in 2013.

In addition, the America's Cup planning committee chose the Louis Berger Group, in partnership with Newport Collaborative Architects, Gates, Leighton and Associates Inc. and St. Jean Engineering LLC as design and engineering firms to begin working through a design build process with BMW Oracle.
