The challenge has already been accepted by Royal New Zealand Yachting, and the announcement brings the total number of challenges for the next iteration of the America’s Cup to five. “Bruno and I are so excited to be joining the rest of the challengers. We’ve been working behind the scenes for nearly a year and are excited to announce some great stuff by the end of this month,” said Stephen Candler, CEO of K-Challenge Race.

Grant Dalton, CEO of AC37 Event Limited, added: “It is fantastic that the Frenchman is back in the America’s Cup now as the fifth contender and will undoubtedly bring a sense of consistency and flair to the shocking incident in Barcelona.
Although France is an important sailing country, sending a team to participate in the America’s Cup is no small feat, so I congratulate Stéphane, Bruno and Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez for working tirelessly to make this happen. Point. »
The K-Challenge last challenged The Old Mug at the 32nd edition in Valencia in 2007 and more details will be announced later in January. They will join the other competitors in the racing village at Marina Port’s Well. With the western Mediterranean back in the race, the region is set to see a record-breaking invasion of superyachts, with heavier frequencies to the marina’s capacity.
The Event Racing Village is located in El Molle de la Fusta and connects people to boats, team locations, and events, allowing for a free experience available to all. The racing area, as seen above, is close to town and is sure to make for a racing scene.
