America’s Cup

The America’s Cup is the world’s oldest active sports trophy dating back to 1851, and the most prestigious sailing regatta. 

The 36th America’s Cup will be fought out in 2021 on the beautiful Waitemata Harbour, with Team New Zealand defending its 2017 win in Bermuda.

Challengers will battle it out for the Prada Cup in January-February 2021, with the winner taking on the Emirates Team New Zealand.

And you can be there, on the water, enjoying all the action from the comfort of the Audacious.
