Three days of spectacular superyacht racing around the beautiful island are scheduled to take place between June 13 and 15, just ahead of the America’s Cup match, which runs from June 17 to 27.
Superyachts as well as J Class yachts will battle it out for the America’s Cup Superyacht Regatta Trophy currently held by Pendennis’ 52m/169ft sailing yacht Adela, who won the event in San Francisco in 2013.
The superyacht regatta will also see an exciting onshore programme, which will ensure Owners, their guests and their crews enjoy being an integral part of one of sport’s most iconic competitions.
Sam Hollis, COO of the America’s Cup Event Authority, said: “The America’s Cup Superyacht Regatta is sure to add to the experience for all in Bermuda next year, ensuring this will be one of the best America’s Cups we’ve seen to date.”
