Frequently Asked Questions
The America’s Cup is the oldest trophy in international sport and the preeminent international sailing competition. Initially a one-on-one competition between teams representing the nations of their respective yacht clubs, the America’s Cup has evolved into a multinational-team competition featuring the best sailors in the world on the world’s fastest and most innovative boats – wing-sailed and foiling AC45 and AC50 catamarans.
The 35th America’s Cup began in 2015 and 2016 with the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series, raced in venues around the world. The main events will be held in May and June 2017 in Bermuda, which will narrow the ﬁeld to just two: the top challenger and the defender, ORACLE TEAM USA.
The event will be held from May 26, 2017 to June 27, 2017, but sailing is weather dependent.
