The final countdown begins

The final countdown begins

The Friday afternoon deadline for teams to be accepted as challengers for the 32nd America’s Cup is drawing near. As written in the Terms of Challenge for the 32nd America’s Cup, challenges will be accepted “until 16:00 on the 29 April 2005”. No new challenges will be considered after the deadline passes.

AC Management, the organisers of the 32nd America’s Cup, along with representatives of the Defending yacht club, the Société Nautique de Genève, intend to communicate how many teams, if any, have submitted their challenge dossiers by the deadline on Friday afternoon. The identity of the teams and their status will also be revealed at that time.

Over the following days, more information will be released as appropriate to their status.

Prospective teams are still in contact with the Société Nautique de Genève and the event organisers, working to beat the deadline to become a challenger.

Earlier th is week, the Defender and the Challenger of Record clarified the intent of the language in the Terms of Challenge, stating that the ‘deadline’ refers to receipt of all necessary information (bank drafts, Notice of Challenge, several other sworn documents), as opposed to the information having been evaluated and accepted as bona fide by the Société Nautique de Genève.
