Venezia Challenge officially challenges for the 34th America’s Cup

Posted on 30 March 2011 by Valencia Sailing

According to a brief statement on the team’s website, Venezia Challenge presented on Tuesday its official challenge for the 34th America’s Cup, representing Circolo Canottieri Roggero di Lauria.

A one-page article on the team appeared on the print version of today’s Corriere della Sera. According to the article, Cesare Pasotti will be the team manager, a position he held in Valencia in the 32nd America’s Cup with +39 Challenge.

We have contacted the team and will most probably talk to Carlo Magna, founder of Venezia Challenge, later on Wednesday or Thursday. There is no official confirmation by either the Golden Gate Yacht Club or America’s Cup Event Authority that he challenge has been accepted.

    Who in God’s name would let Cesare loose with their money to run an AC Team. +39 was nothing short of a disaster… There is absolutely no way this can be a serious challenge…
    That guy shouldn’t be allowed to manage a team until he settles all the debts +39 owe from the last campaign. Complete joke!
