Azzurra and the 34th America's Cup

from Jill Campbell

"As regards the future and the 34th AC, Consorzio Azzurra is currently assessing the most viable strategy to ensure the continued growth and development of the team following the relaunch of the historic brand and our successful participation in the Louis Vuitton Trophy events of 2009 and 2010.

"While a range of international races and circuits are under examination, at the moment it would be difficult to foresee the YCCS participating in the 34th America’s Cup. Together with the rest of the international sailing community, we sincerely hope that the new protocol will lead to a fair, innovative and successful edition of the event."

Jill Campbell, YCCS press officer, adds that "Azzurra is not involved with the X40 circuit".
