America's Cup: TEAMORIGIN Comment on Draft Protocol

by Leslie Greenhalgh

Grant Simmer, CEO of TEAMORIGIN, commented on the draft Protocol document for the 34th America's Cup:

"We are very pleased to have received the draft form of the Protocol for the 34th America’s Cup last night. It is a very detailed document and so will take us some days to digest and discuss internally. TEAMORIGIN very much wants to be involved in the process of moving this draft forward into a final Protocol document by the 31st August 2010 and therefore we will collate our thoughts and feedback over the next week and input our comments. The document has been based in some areas on the AC32 Protocol, with some new additions. We do have some concerns but will voice them directly to GGYC. We are very encouraged to see that GGYC and Club Nautico di Roma are keen to empower and include the future potential challengers in this process as we move forward."
