The 35th America’s Cup Match Presented by Louis Vuitton
In June 2017, the best sailors in the world will convene in Bermuda for the 35th America’s Cup, presented by Louis Vuitton. The pinnacle of international sailing, the America’s Cup has generated intense excitement––and fierce rivalries––for more than 160 years. Now, for the first time, this premier event will take place in Bermuda, an island founded on a legacy of sailing.
The drama will unfold in Bermuda’s Great Sound, a magnificent natural amphitheater set amid a spectacular backdrop of islands and beaches.
The racing will take place on the America’s Cup Class catamarans, high-tech hydrofoiling yachts capable of speeds of 2 to 3 times the speed of the wind.
With the new America’s Cup Event Village being built in the South Basin of the Royal Naval Dockyard, the Island will offer an unmatched experience for sailing teams and spectators from around the world.

The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Qualifiers
