America's Cup 34- Australia & TBD
What an exciting day!
Team Australia announced (press release here) that they will be competing in the America's Cup and then an eighth team announced that they will be competing as well! Pretty exciting stuff... Team Australia will be the first Australian team to compete for the cup in over a decade.
This means that the list of teams for America's Cup 34 is as follows; Aleph (France), Artemis Racing (Sweden), Energy Team (France), Mascalzone Latino (Italy), Team Australia, two undisclosed teams and the defender of the cup, BMW ORACLE Racing.
Personally, and I don't know how feasible this really is, but I'd like to see New Zealand and Russia throw their respective hats in the ring as well.
