Plymouth, Devon has been chosen as one of the locations for the 2011 America’s Cup. “We have selected venues that reflect both the prestige of the America’s Cup, and that can bring the action on the water to those on land,” said Richard Worth, Chairman, ACEA. “Similar to San Francisco, all of the inaugural AC World Series venues enable spectators to watch the racing live, which will help expose this great sport to more people worldwide.”
The America’s Cup is one of the most coveted trophies in the sports world. Steeped in history and excitement since it began in 1851, after 160 years it returns to England.
The 34th America’s Cup World Series will see 15 teams from 12 countries across the world competing in the event. The America’s Cup is a trophy awarded to the winner of the America’s Cup and is a test of sailing skill, boat and sail design, as well as fund-raising and management skills.
Televised to expose millions more fans to the sport of high-performance sailing, the AC World Series is a circuit of regattas that bring America’s Cup-level racing and experience to top international venues. At the end of each AC World Series season, a champion will be crowned. These events provide the fans the only opportunity to see all of the America’s Cup competitors racing together.
THG’s clients will be able to view the race from the deck of out exclusively chartered yacht during the America’s Cup. The yacht will follow the action as the boats make their way around the course, our clients will enjoy premium open bar and canapes as well as onboard commentary from a yachting personality who will speak about the race action as it unfolds in front of them.
