America’s Cup: Multihull or Monohull?

Published on September 12th, 2017

The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, as the winner of the 35th America’s Cup, and Circolo della Vela Sicilia, as the Challenger of Record, have announced that a new monohull class will compete for the 36th America’s Cup.

Not since the 32nd edition in 2007 had monohulls raced for the Auld Mug. Here’s been the recent multihull history:

2010 – 90-footers
2013 – 72-footers
2017 – 49-footers

Do you endorse the decision to race in a new class of high-performance monohulls or should the next event, anticipated to be held in 2021, continue in foiling, wing-powered, speedy multihulls? When we hosted a survey on September 12-13 to ask the question, here was the response:

82% – I WANT A MONOHULL CLASS
18% – I WANT A MULTIHULL CLASS
