The Royal Swedish Yacht Club (Kungliga Svenska Segel Sällskapet, KSSS), represented by Artemis Racing, is now the Challenger of Record for the 34th America’s Cup.

America’s Cup defender, Golden Gate Yacht Club, informed AC34 Regatta Director Iain Murray of the withdrawal by the Italian yacht club Club Nautico di Roma (CNR) earlier this week.

CNR filed the first challenge for the 34th America’s Cup and thereby became the “Challenger of Record.” KSSS was the second challenger to enter, and under America's Cup rules, automatically succeeds as Challenger of Record.

Additional America’s Cup updates will be provided in early June at a media conference in San Francisco. A save-the-date and details will be issued next week.
