How to watch the America's Cup Superyacht Regatta

How to watch the America's Cup Superyacht Regatta

The America’s Cup Superyacht Regatta will take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (13 – 15 June 2017). Each day will feature one race with the intention of starting the J Class first with a conventional fleet start at 1130, followed by a staggered start for the Superyacht Fleet, with the first yacht scheduled to start at 1150.

The length of the races will vary depending on conditions, but are expected to be 3-4 hours in duration. Racecourses will use inflatable marks East, North and South of the eastern portion of Bermuda. The starting and finishing lines will be within 3nm of the entrance of St George’s Harbour.

Here's how to watch the Superyacht Regatta:

By Sea

To learn more about the daily racecourse and additional racing information, please monitor the official race committee channel (VHF 69), used to communicate with competitors.

All spectator vessels are asked to stay well clear of the superyachts. These yachts will range in size from 25-90 metres in length and in some cases manoeuvrability is limited. Please adhere to any requests from the race committee.


The racing area is intended to take place northeast, east and south of Bermuda to be able to set interesting, varying courses for the three days of racing, with the start line close to St George's Harbour. For those who would like to watch the racing by land, the best view points will be Gates Fort at the entrance of St George's Harbour, St David's Head and along the south cost from Tuckers town to Hungry Bay and Elbow Beach, depending on the daily set race courses.

Race day three's course (Thursday June 15)

Today's course will start from the south of the island. Starting near Pink Beach, there will be a downwind start all the way along to Tuckers Town, St David Lighthouse, with a loop near St Georges before the finish.
