This professional circuit brings America's Cup-level racing and experience to the best venues around the world
The America's Cup is the oldest active trophy in international sport and is the prize that is presented to the winner of the America's Cup races. The winner is one of two sailing yachts - the 'defender' represents the yacht club that currently posses the Cup and the 'challenger' represents the yacht club that wants to challenge for the Cup. Any yacht club can challenge for the Cup, provided they meet the requirements laid out in the Deed of Gifts, and, if they win, they gain guardianship of the Cup.
Many of the top sailors from around the world are attracted by the prestige associated with the Cup. It is an extreme challenge that tests the skill of the sailors and the design of the yachts, with catamarans speeding past at over 30 mph as well as a variety of fleet and match races to test the abilities of sailing teams from around the globe.
The America's Cup races are exhilirating and a joy to behold. Why not track the current Cup and make sure you catch a race or two on your luxury yacht charter vacation.
