The remainder of the crew can be made up of temporary residents of the challenging yacht club’s country. The Challenger Selection Series will be called Prada Cup. The intended venue is Auckland, New Zealand with the Match to be raced in March 2021, preceded by The Prada Cup in January and February 2021, details to be announced by August 31st, 2018.
