Boat International Media, in collaboration with the America’s Cup, is organising the official Superyacht Regatta of the 34th America’s Cup in San Francisco, and we now have more details of the event.
Sailing enthusiasts from around the world will have had a full summer of high speed racing, with the Louis Vuitton Cup (America’s Cup Challenger Series) raced in July and August to determine who will race Oracle Team USA in the America’s Cup Finals beginning on 7 September. For the very first time superyachts will be able to be at the heart of the action; participating in their own regatta over the three America’s Cup Finals lay days; 9, 11 and 13 September 2013.
In addition to three spectacular days of racing, an exclusive social program will ensure that owners and their guests are entertained to our usual first-class standards.
Exclusive in-venue berthing is available, offering prime positioning to watch the racing as well as being ideally located next to the America’s Cup Park, which includes a Pavilion for 9,000 fans to watch the racing, live music and exhibitions of past America’s Cup winners.
Sailing superyachts that have booked a berth for the duration of the 34th America’s Cup Finals will be able to enter the Superyacht Regatta at no additional charge.Yachts who have not booked berths as part of the Superyacht Program can enter the Superyacht Regatta, however a participation fee will apply.
