Entries open for 34th America's Cup
The event organisers today confirmed receipt of the first entries for the 34th America’s Cup in 2013.
"We're only a few hours into a five-month entry period, so to already have a total of four entries is a very positive sign,” said Iain Murray (AUS), Regatta Director for the 34th America's Cup and CEO of America's Cup Race Management.
“The competitors who applied for entry today join the previously declared Italian challenger Mascalzone Latino. BMW Oracle Racing submitted its
defense application today,” Murray said. “The other two teams will not be named as their applications are being verified. Throughout the five-month entry period, ACRM will announce the time and date when an entry has been accepted. Each team will release details of its entry publicly at their discretion. Additional entries are expected soon,” Murray added.
The entry period for the 34th America’s Cup runs from 1 November, 2010 until 31 Mar, 2011. After this date entries may still be accepted but this will be at the discretion of the event organisers and will require a late entry fee to be paid.
One of the 'secret' entries is expected to be Torbjorn Tornqvist's Artemis who are to make a major announcement to the press in Stockholm next Monday (8 November).
