    How many challengers will there be?

    Anything is possible what could knock a team out before the Prada Cup. Financial problems? Boat failure? Risk of life? Dare I say the court drama? Could go on.

    Second US Team

    A lot of this is barroom gossip and sailor speculation they mention this at the end. Like this part. Malta might seem an odd contender but sprang out of the long-anticipated second Italian challenge. One version of the evolution of this challenge says at least one Italian yacht club wanted a large donation to be the challenging club – so the organisers hitched their wagon to the Royal Malta Yacht Club instead through patron Pasquale Cataldi, head of Altus, who lives in Malta.

    Wasn't expecting that. If we get 7 thats like 1995 level of participation. Impressed.

    Teams?

    Auckland mayor Phil Goff has said the new extra funding is for Halsey Wharf so there must be six challengers? Because Prada wanted that spot? Why would they have the five berths in Wynyard and not fill them?

    Two yacht clubs together has been done before. But I don't think they ended up in the challenger series? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ALL4ONE_Challenge

    Team NZ

    Still wondering why there was no made for TV movie about it like 1995 and 2000 must of been too much of a distraction for them.

    Not Alinghi but another Swiss challenge is being talked about. "while there have been whispers of interest from Norway and Switzerland." France are still trying to get there. "Bolstered by the unfailing support of partners and supporters, Team France will continue to work hard so that France is present at the 36th America's Cup," the statement finished. As for Australia it's so close to home why not?

  14. Yes between 1997 and 1999 38 and 32 were fitted out and changed shape for the Auckland training. So not exactly the same but I would like to see 60 in a display too the first successful defender outside America.
  15. Yes I saw her in 2001 and touched the blub keel still in flaming livery back then. Was a surprise when I got off the plane had never been to Auckland at the time.
