SAN FRANCISCO Bay will be home to the Louis Vuitton Cup, America’s Cup Challenger Series and the 2013 America’s Cup Finals. At 160 years old, the America’s Cup is the oldest trophy in international sport. The America’s Cup has evolved into one of the world’s leading sporting competitions – featuring the best sailors on the world’s fastest boats, the wing-sailed AC45 and AC72 catamarans.
The new America’s Cup World Series opened its inaugural season in August 2011 and continues with events around the world. In the summer of 2013, the 34th America’s Cup begins in San Francisco with the Louis Vuitton Cup running from 4th of July until the 1st of September 2013, followed by the America’s Cup Match Finals running from the 7th until the 22nd of September 2013.
One of the commitments of event organisers is to engage the superyacht industry in the event, both on-and-off the water. Never before has the superyacht world had the chance to be so involved. The America’s Cup Superyacht program is designed to create an experience that goes beyond the water. Superyacht guests will have “front-row” seats to all of the action on the water and off the water, guests will have access to only the finest experiences on offer. By working with leading companies, associations and captains within the superyacht community, while collaborating with key maritime authorities, the America’s Cup Superyacht Program will be able to offer unparalleled experiences and convenience to all of its guests.
