Yep, we can probably count on 4 Challs so far. LR, LRBAR, QR, and Team China.

Will China have Burling at the helm?

Enter the Dragon: China eyes America’s Cup entry

(excerpt):

Monk believes China could challenge for the Auld Mug again: “They could do it in a heartbeat. They certainly have the finances and resources to do it. But it’s just not as important to them as it is to us yet. It will still take a little while to get people to understand what the America’s Cup stands for.”

An entry in the following America’s Cup – especially if it was retained by Team NZ – would be far more realistic, Monk says. “They have the talent, but it’s just time. The America’s Cup is definitely on their horizon.”

Great to hear and just in time.  Word is they've been told to vacate their current team base.
