Laying the foundation for a sustainable America’s Cup

Published on July 29th, 2014

London, UK (July 29, 2014) – As the holder of the America’s Cup, Golden Gate Yacht Club and their defense team Oracle Team USA hosted a meeting with four of the teams who have entered the 35th America’s Cup or plan to by the entry deadline of August 8; Luna Rossa (ITA), Artemis Racing (SWE), Team France (FRA) and Ben Ainslie Racing (GBR).

The meeting saw a number of points debated, with the key points agreed between all parties present were:

• Regular meetings encompassing all teams in order to work collectively to maximize the potential of both this America’s Cup and future editions.
• Each team plan to host an America’s Cup World Series event in either their own country, or a country of their choice.
• All the teams present agreed that they would commit – if they were to win the Cup in 2017 – to continue with the America’s Cup World Series.
• A commitment to further reduce the costs for both this Cup and future editions.
• Support for the choice of host venue, be it Bermuda or San Diego.
• A working group to agree on the date and event structure of the 36th America’s Cup, to lay the foundations for a sustainable event.

Below are the proposed race course areas for Bermuda and San Diego, plus weather data for both venues.
