The Golden Gate Yacht Club under no obligation to consider other challenges

The Golden Gate Yacht Club has responded to letters sent earlier this month by Italian club Circolo Vela Gargano, who wish to have a Challenger Selection Series for the 33rd America’s Cup, and for the next event to be delayed to accommodate their participation.

The Italian club is represented by a new team in the Americas Cup – Green Comm Challenge. This group entered the 33rd series when the now defrocked Club Nautico Espanol de Vela was Challenger of Record, but did not participate (along with ten other teams) in the Louis Vuitton pacific series in Auckland in February.
