The “+39 Challenge” team has thrown down the glove for the colours of the “Circolo Vela Gargnano”, a club situated on the banks of lake Garda and famous throughout the world for its “Centomiglia” regatta. It was the first official Challenger to unite with the “BMW Oracle Racing Team” in an attempt to wrench the America’s Cup from Alinghi. The defending Yacht Club, “Société Nautique de Genève”, has formally accepted CVG’S challenge on 25 March 2004. Lorenzo Rizzardi is President of the challenging Yacht Club and Head of the + 39 Syndicate.
