The name Shosholoza refers to a popular South African song and is used in an attempt to encompass the African spirit of the team.
The team's history goes back to when Ian Ainslie taught sailing skills to underprivileged youngsters in the navy village of Simon's Town and Captain Salvatore Sarno asked them to crew his Durban yacht. As the team improved the Captain began to talk about the America's Cup.
