China Team, the Chinese challenger for the 34th America’s Cup, has decided to part ways with its skipper Mitch Booth after the first AC World Series in Cascais, Portugal, last week. China Team started the week on a strong note with many good results, notably coming third in the speed trial, and had some of the most magic moments of the event. China Team is in the process of finalizing the recruitment of another skipper to be announced shortly.
