Shosholoza Team
Thanks to Commander Salvatore Sarno, managing director of the Mediterranean shipping Company, Durban (South Africa), there is also a South African challenger in Cape Town. It's the first time that an Africa-based team participates in the event. The sailing team in South Africa and Shosholoza is going to find local sailors, among them some graduated at Izivunguvungu MSC Foundation for Youth sail training school in Simonstown, near Cape Town.
The name Shosholoza is rooted into South Africa culture. It goes back to a working song sung by miners and by all the people constrained into a life of hard work and sacrifice. It may mean "go ahead" or "make way", both of which are suited to an America's Cup Team.
Geoff Meek has been apponited skipper. Five times prize-winner as "South African yachtsman of the year", Meek has also esperience in America's Cup, having partecipated in the British team's training, in the 1997 Compaign as two skipper. Also Paul Standbridge, the sailing manager can claim field esperience, having had the same role in the 2003 GBR challenge. Shosholoza Challenge have been at work for several months now in the Cape Town base. They have bought one of the Prada boats 2000 of America's Cup and have already started the selections for the crew.
