Spain. United Internet Team Germany plans next campaign for Americas Cup participation

Friday, 17 November 2006

There are still 137 days left until the start of Act 13 in the contest of the 32nd America's Cup off the Spanish coast. While the United Internet Team Germany, around skipper Jesper Bank, is preparing day and night for the next challenge off Valencia, preparations for another possible campaign are made in the background.

"Our premiere at the America's Cup is a continuous learning process for all participants. We can improve in the most different areas and optimize all activities almost every day. Against this background it would be only consequent to plan another campaign. We would then have the opportunity to apply our collected experiences and realisations in the best way", says Sy
ndicate Head Michael Scheeren.

"The timing-factor is very important for a successful participation in the America´s Cup. It is therefore important not to waste time while discussing the future of Team Germany, but instead to step right into the decision process today. If we want to use our technical know-how gathered in Valencia at the best possible rate for another campaign, we now have to work out the basic conditions for a continuation thoroughly"
, Eberhard Magg also confirms.

In order to arrange this decision process competently and ideally, Team Germany puts his Technical Manager Eberhard Magg in charge of this task, commencing December 1st 2006.
