The German America's Cup campaign, Deutsche Challenge 2007 AG will announce if their campaign, FRESH SEVENTEEN, will be an official challenger of the 32nd America's Cup on 29 April.
The course of action was decided by the board and supervisors today in Munich. The extended deadline for late entries has been set for exactly 1600 hours local time on that day, and it is only until then that clubs such as the Deutsche Challenger Yacht Club (DCYC) may formally file their challenge with the Société Nautique de Genève
, defender and current holder of the Cup in the guise of Team Alinghi
Up until that point, all those involved in the project, are set to work hard and focus on bringing the intended entry to success.
Right now the important decisions regarding finance are being hammered out in Munich. However, the suspense will remain until 29 April with no more statements given before that date by Deutsche Challenge 2007 AG or DCYC.
Whether or not 2007 will see the first German challenge in the 153 year history of the world's longest-standing sports trophy is a mystery until then.
