Today, one of the unnamed America’s Cup challengers was announced to be a syndicate called Venezia Challenge . The Italian syndicate says they will be contesting the cup on behalf of Rowing Club Roggero di Lauria in Palermo, Italy.
Only one question remains: Who is this syndicate? A Google search turns up nothing on them except their official website, which doesn’t provide much information either. Does anyone know what kind of financial backing they have and what experience with sailing their principals have, or who their principals even are?
