Memorandum for prospective 34th America's Cup competitors

GGYC Trustee Memo No. 1
The Golden Gate Yacht Club published yesterday a memorandum that provides details for filing a Notice of Challenge or Application of Defense in accordance with the America’s Cup Deed of Gift (“Deed”) and the Protocol Governing the 34th America’s Cup (“Protocol”).

There isn't anything extraordinary in that memo, merely formalities, but it does state that GGYC will publicly announce only that it has accepted a challenge or a defense candidate and the date of acceptance. They will not announce other particulars unless the team asks them to, in which case they will have to make their own announcement.

The logic behind this approach is for the organization not to steal the spotlight with each announcement but leave it to the teams to grab the attention of the world media. Let's hope this is a first sign that all involved in the 34th America's Cup, from GGYC to the ACEA and ACRM, will be much more thoughtful toward, and supportive of, the teams.

famous... if you want as they do not announce names. Only " a team has registered".

Then "a team has withdrawn" but still you do not know who it ever was.

Correct there might well be 10 teams, holding on the AC45, but who will race that is another matter.
