[Source: Circolo Vela Gargnano] Today, in the offices of the Lombardy Regional Council, the Circolo Vela Gargnano and the sports consortium "Green Comm Challenge" announced the launch of a challenge for the 33rd America's Cup, a race with currently a single challenger, the Golden Gate Yacht Club from San Francisco. As stipulated by the "Deed of Gift" the regatta should take place in 2010 on yachts 90 feet by 90 feet, that means multihulls with a length and width of 90 feet, approximately 27 meters.

The challenge of Circolo Vela Gargnano - on the Garda lake (the second one in its history after the participation of +39 Challenge in the 32nd edition) was presented by the president of Green Comm Challenge Francesco De Leo, the legal counsel of Green Comm, lawyer Nicolò Bastianini, the president of Circolo Vela Gargnano Lorenzo Rizzardi, and the vice-president of the Lombardy Regional Council.

Angelo Glisoni, former Tornado world champion and Italian coach in the Athens and Beijing Olympics, will be in charge of the crew selection process. The design team will be supervised by UCLA professor Mario Gerla (one of the creators of Internet) and professor Giovanni Lombardi from the University of Pisa. The Turin Polytechnic school will also collaborate in the design.

Ah EB has bought a new Poodle. Ah wait its the +39 stooges. Guess he just renamed a Poodle he already owned.

Credible challenge? Then I guess I am to.

Yeah, that's right, EB has another Poodle! And (this is super secret information, don't tell anybody) EB is actually providing all the challengers with their entry boats. Yes, that's right, he is paying for all of it: challengers, their boats, the referees, the press, its all prearranged by EB, as part of his satanic strategy!

5:38 pm anonymous - this might be a secret only for you. otherwise, it's a worldwide known fact.

Green Com challenge is the old +39 Challenge renamed so the entity doesn't have to pay all the outstanding debts it accumulated during the 32nd AC, including the 2 salaries owed to all employees which is still outstanding! This is a complete farce and none of those men sitting at that table should ever be allowed within the AC circle again. They are lying cheats! Oracle would've have laughed at Green Com's intentions and thrown it in the trash, they have too much on to be worried about a bunch of amatures from Lake Garda!
