The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series is a racing circuit featuring the best sailors in the world. After nearly a century America’s Cup sailing will return to New York Harbor on May 7 and 8, 2016. The multi-day sailing event will feature the world’s best sailors, racing the fastest boats, in front of the backdrop of New York’s iconic harbor and landmarks.
Six teams will compete in the New York event, vying for points that count towards the final competition for the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda in 2017. From 1851 until 1983 the trophy was held by the New York Yacht Club and the emotional return of America’s Cup racing to the city will mark a major moment in sailing history.
When America’s Cup sailing returns to New York in May, spectators will witness an awe-inspiring blend of athleticism and technological advancement in sailing. Join Sperry as we celebrate the ultimate sailing adventure at the 2016 Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series New York.
