Everything you need to know about the 37th America’s Cup

Follow the build-up to the 37th America’s Cup as the teams prepare to fight it out for the oldest sporting trophy in the world.

Which teams are in the 37th America’s Cup?

In 2021 four teams raced in fully foiling AC75 monohulls which were conceived specifically for the event by then Defender, Emirates Team New Zealand and Challenger of Record, Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli.

These same four teams return for the 2024 America’s Cup and will be joined by two additional teams, bringing the total number of entries up to 6.

Emirates Team New Zealand – America’s Cup Defender

As the current holder of the America’s Cup, Emirates Team New Zealand will be racing again in the 37th America’s Cup. As the Defender, the Kiwis will be guaranteed a spot in the America’s Cup regatta itself.

Any other challengers will need to race each other in preliminary regattas for the right to be the single challenger in the America’s Cup regatta itself.

Emirates Team New Zealand represent the Royal Auckland Yacht Club in America’s Cup racing.

INEOS Britannia – America’s Cup Challenger of Record

The Challenger of Record is the name given to the first yacht club to challenge the holder of the America’s Cup once it has been won.

When Emirates Team New Zealand successfully completed their defence of the America’s Cup in 2021, the Royal Yacht Squadron immediately issued a challenge on behalf of Ben Ainslie’s INEOS Team UK (now called INEOS Britannia), so they are Challenger of Record for the 37th America’s Cup .

INEOS Britannia and Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team has strengthened an exhausting relationship, with the British challenger standing to benefit from the technical and engineering experience of the multiple World Champion F1 team.

Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli

Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli has a very long America’s Cup history having first competed in 2000 and has taken part in every Cup since (with the exception of the unique 2010 Deed of Gift match).

For the 36th America’s Cup Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli were the challenger of record. They also won the challenger selection series so it was this Italian team who took on Emirates Team New Zealand for the America’s Cup itself.

The team will return for the 37th America’s Cup though this time they are not the official challenger of record.

American Magic

In 2021 the New York Yacht Clubs’ American Magic was also competing, though their event was ultimately ruined by a capsize in the early part of the regatta . They did get the boat rebuilt but it never got back up to speed and they made an early exit.

The 2021 campaign marked the return of the New York Yacht Club to the America’s Cup. The NYYC held the America’s Cup from its inception in 1851 right the way through to 1983, when they were defeated by the Royal Perth Yacht Club’s Australia II .

American Magic have confirmed their entry into the 37th America’s Cup and will, once again, be representing the New York Yacht Club.

Alinghi Red Bull Racing

Another team making a return to the America’s Cup scene after a long break will be Ernesto Bertarelli’s Alinghi team. The Swiss team won the America’s Cup in 2003 and then completed a successful defence in 2007.

However, a serious falling out over the potential rules for the next America’s Cup saw Alinghi taken to court by Larry Ellison and his BMW Oracle team, the 2010 America’s Cup was held between Alinghi and BMW Oracle Racing in a Deed of Gift match that saw the teams fight it out in huge multihulls.

BMW Oracle won the contest and Alinghi stepped away from America’s Cup racing. Their return is a welcome one and their Cup history alongside their partnership with Red Bull Racing should see them a solid challenge from the off.

Orient Express Team France

The French entry to the 2024 America’s Cup was long rumoured but it was not until quite late in the day that they officially announced their intention to challenge.

It was in early 2023 that the official announcement came of a French AC entry, backed by Accor Group and its brands Orient Express and ALL-ACCOR Live Limitless.

As a fairly late challenge they will have a lot to do to be competitive.

What boats will be used in the 37th America’s Cup

The Protocol for the 37th America’s Cup has been released including the rules for the class of boat to be used in the next edition of the event. Once again the America’s Cup will be raced for in AC75s . These boats were first brought in ahead of the 36th America’s Cup so this will be their second outing.

The foiling monohulls will be slightly different, with rules being tweaked partly aimed at improving light wind performance and reducing crew numbers from 11 to 8.

Teams will only be allowed to build one AC75 and nationality rules are strict this time around requiring 100% of the race crew for each competitor to either be a passport holder of the country of the team’s yacht club or to have been physically present in that country for 18 months of the previous three years prior to 17th March 2021.

Emirates Team New Zealand saw success in 2017 in Bermuda with their Cyclors . These may well return for the 37th America’s Cup.

When it comes to the events, there will be up to three Preliminary Regattas, the first two raced in a new one-design class of AC40s , the last one at the Match venue in AC75s. The Challenger Selection Series and the America’s Cup Match will be held in 2024.

Barcelona, the venue for the 37th America’s Cup

Where will the 37th America’s Cup be held?

Barcelona, Spain was selected in 2022 as the venue for the 37th America’s Cup , marking the first time a New Zealand team has chosen to defend a Cup win overseas.

The home city of Emirates Team New Zealand and the venue for the 36th America’s Cup, Auckland, had an exclusive period in which to tender for the regatta immediately after the Kiwis’ successful defence in 2021, but the sums on offer were not enough, and Emirates Team New Zealand CEO Grant Dalton cast the net wider internationally after rejecting a NZ$99 million (£50 million) offer from the New Zealand government.

A number venues were mooted including: Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; Cork, Ireland; Malaga, Spain, but Barcelona eventually won out.

When will the 37th America’s Cup be raced?

The America’s Cup will be held in 2024 in Barcelona. Racing in the 37th America’s Cup Match itself, which is a best of 13 (first to seven) format will start on Saturday 12th October 2024 and could run all the way to the 27th October should all the races be needed to pick a winner.

The America’s Cup will be proceeded by the challenger selection series, which will see which of the five challenger gets the honour to race New Zealand for the Cup itself.

The stated aim was to hold the event in the September-October window, which will allow for the Olympic Games in Paris, France to conclude and also offers a decent range of weather with wind speeds usually around the 9-15 knot mark.

Match Racing

Though the America’s Cup was first raced for in 1851 ( and won by the schooner America from which the trophy gets its name), this race was between a fleet of boats. A challenge by the British in the 1870s was also conducted as a fleet race.

By the 1880s, following a protest from the British, the America’s Cup was decided in a head-to-head match race where two boats sail against each other.

Match racing is a particular skill and encourages aggressive manoeuvres using the rules to put your opponent at a disadvantage. This cut-and-thrust racing, where the only objective is to beat your opponent, has long been at the heart of America’s Cup racing and produces a thrilling spectacle.

Boat of the Week: Meet the ‘Patriot,’ the New Lightning-Fast America’s Cup Foiling Yacht Representing the US

After being airlifted 9,000 miles from the factory, the 45-foot sailing racer exceeded designers' initial expectations by zigzagging around the auckland waterfront at insane speeds., michael verdon, michael verdon's most recent stories.

The America's Cup yacht Patriot Made Its Debut in Auckland This Week

Patriot , the just-launched America’s Cup racing yacht representing the United States, completed its first week of sailing last week in New Zealand . The New York Yacht Club’s representative team, American Magic, tested the potential of a design that had only been proven by computer simulation. The 75-foot navy-hulled Patriot , which just days before had been shipped by cargo plane 9,000 miles from Rhode Island, streaked across the Auckland waterfront, zigzagging on its foils, videos suggesting it reached its “sound barrier,” or top speed, of an estimated 50 knots (America’s Cup teams don’t like to talk about top speeds), or 57 mph.

“We went off the dock thinking that if the breeze filled in, we’d have a good sail,” Terry Hutchinson, skipper and executive director of American Magic, said after the sail. “Straight away, we came into 21 knots [of wind pressure], and we were into it. Despite having a brand-new boat that we were all excited about, the whole session felt normal. That’s a great validation of our shore team and all of the work put in since we launched the Mule in 2018.”

“The Mule” was the first prototype that American Magic built to train its crew on at its facility in Pensacola, Florida, and that basic design was followed by Defender , a more complex boat that has been decommissioned since Patriot ’s arrival. Like its competitors Lunna Rossa from Italy, Britannia from the UK and the America’s Cup defender, Te Aihe from New Zealand, American Magic won’t divulge technical details about Patriot , beyond the fact its steering station is more forward than on Defender .

The 75-footer is clearly fast, even out of the box, and for the next three months, designers and specialists will tweak the carbon-fiber hull and 1560-square-foot mainsail to make it even faster.

The world’s foremost sailing event, the America’s Cup has been around since 1851, though the last three Cups were more like Formula One racing, compared to the stately, slow-sailing monohulls of previous generations. The last three Cups have all been designed around foils, starting in 2013 with the AC72, and then three years ago, the boats became smaller, and much more nimble, 50-ft. catamarans that not only accelerated like an F-22 Raptor, but could nearly pivot on their own axis.

The last-generation cats were a bit too wild, so the powers that be came up with the current AC-72 class using a one-design rule where all competitors had to use common parts. The idea was to level the playing field. Organizers supply some parts of the boat, including the mast, rigging, foil-cant arms and hydraulics. The boats—16 feet wide with a crew of 11—are also built of lightweight composites because they’re designed to fly, rather than plough through the water.

Patriot ’s foil-cant arms are also designed to move both under or outside the boat to provide the leverage to keep it upright. If it does capsize, the crews can right the boat much easier than the previous generations of foiling racers. Another new evolution for this America’s Cup is the twin-skin mainsail on the 87-foot-tall mast. The double-sail skins combine with the spar to generate the power the AC75 needs to foil. On the last two generations, the sails were much stiffer sail-wings that many non-Cup racers complained about because there was no trickle-down technology for the rest of the sailing world.

Beneath the water, Patriot also has an interesting breakthrough design. The foil-cant system uses new technology that employs a battery-driven, hydraulic-power unit to raise and lower the strong, but very heavy, foil-cant arms, that give the boat its stability and speed. As the boat changes tacks, the cant system is activated, placing one hydrofoil in the water, and lifting the other one out, where its weight becomes ballast.

Beyond the sail plan and hull design, the foil wings at the end of the arms will be another of Patriot ’s secret weapons. American Magic designers will have the ability to create any design they believe will be most effective to give the boat an edge over competitors, and the next month will be devoted to trying new shapes and sizes.

Considering the America’s Cup’s ambitious timetable, and the unexpected time pressures Covid-19 put on design and production of Patriot in Rhode Island, it’s amazing that this yacht came through so well. “This team didn’t exist three years ago, and now we have three boats built and two AC75s launched,” said Marcelino Botin, American Magic’s lead designer. “The first thing we need to focus on next is to make sure the new boat is sailed the way we want it to be sailed.”

Botin said this initial “analysis” phase will be critical to future modifications to the design. “We are all interested in knowing how the boat performs compared to our predictions and compared to our previous boat,” he says.

Hutchinson says that Patriot ’s initial performance was encouraging, especially on its first gybe. “We had a great nosedive, and that was exciting,” he said. “It was nothing that we haven’t seen or done on our other boats, and our familiarity with Patriot will increase rapidly over the coming days.”

Helmsman Dean Barker described the boat’s performance as “lively.”

After the America’s Cup World Series and Christmas Cup from December 17 to December 20 will come the Prada Cup Challenger Selection Series, from January 15 through February 22, 2021, where Patriot will compete against Luna Rossa and Britannia II for the challenger title. The winner of that event will then compete against Emirates New Zealand for the America’s Cup, which runs from March 6 through 15, 2021.

America’s Cup: The rising cost of sailing’s ultimate prize

by Patrick Kidd

The America’s Cup is a peculiarly ugly trophy — and it lacks a bottom, so you can’t even drink from it — yet some of the richest men in history have spent hundreds of millions of dollars in an attempt to own it.

Spending oodles on the Cup is a tradition that goes right back to its beginning. John Cox Stevens, commodore of the New York Yacht Club, led a six-man syndicate that brought a 31 metre schooner called America across the Atlantic Ocean in 1851 to make money. They began by placing adverts challenging all-comers (with no age, ability or experience restrictions) to race for a wager of £10,000 (the equivalent of about $1.5 million today), but got no takers.

America made its name later that summer when it joined 15 yachts for the Royal Yacht Squadron’s race around the Isle of Wight. The prize was a trophy costing just £100, but such was America ’s reputation after its convincing win that the syndicate sold the boat for $25,000 — about $5,000 more than they’d paid for it.

Since then, countless sums have been spent on attempts to win the America's Cup. The most persistent challenger was Thomas Lipton. Born in Glasgow, where his family owned a grocery store, he left for the US aged 14 with just $8 in his pocket and returned a millionaire. By the time he launched the first of his five challenges for the America’s Cup in 1899, he controlled 10 per cent of the world’s tea supply, yet he won only two of the 16 races he competed in for the trophy.

In nine contests between 1937 and 1983, the challenger won only three races. Two were by Australian media mogul Frank Packer, who spent more than $700,000 to win one race in 1962.

Eight years later, he had to dig deeper to come through the competition’s first qualification regatta, in which he faced Baron Marcel Bich, founder of Bic pens, who led four unsuccessful Cup campaigns. In the final, Packer won two races, but one was stripped after an acrimonious protest by the host club. His effort did at least show the world that Australians, who were dominant in tennis at the time, could be competitive in another sport.

The breakthrough came in 1983 when Australia II became the first foreign winner. It was owned by Alan Bond, who made his money in property, brewing and broadcasting, and reportedly spent $5 million on his successful America’s Cup campaign — after three failed attempts. He arrived in Rhode Island for the decisive contest with an innovative winged keel and a golden wrench with which he said he would remove the trophy from its plinth.

Perhaps this pursuit of sailing’s Everest took Bond’s attention away from his business empire. Within a decade, he was declared bankrupt, his company owing more than $6 billion. Five years after that he began a four-year spell in prison for fraud – yet most people will remember him for what he did on the water.

$65 million

The Aussie's supremacy was short lived, with the USA winning the trophy back in 1987. In 1992, US oilman Bill Koch spent $65 million on defending the America’s Cup. Ten years later, the qualification series featured five billionaires, including Larry Ellison, co-founder of Oracle, and Patrizio Bertelli, CEO of Prada. In all, $500 million was spent by the challengers. “It’s so cheap, I’m surprised more people don’t do this,” Ellison quipped at the time.

There is a greater reason than financial gain, though. The America’s Cup is the last billionaires’ plaything where those with money can join in. Newspaper owners don’t get their fingers inky; football club owners never strap on their boots. An America’s Cup backer gets to sail with his staff, even if the speed of modern boats makes it unwise to do so in competition. “I want to be driving the winning boat,” Ellison said in 2002.

Few enter the Cup to make money, but it has commercial benefits. Auckland did very well out of hosting the America’s Cup in 2000 and 2003. It created 1,000 jobs and brought $75 million into the local economy, which explains why the New Zealand government supports its country’s bids.

Hosting the Cup does not always pay out in the long run, though. The Spanish port of Valencia, which staged the 2007 event, received $500 million of investment for regeneration and supposedly brought $3 billion in benefit to the city. It even helped to attract a Formula One race to Valencia.

Yet it was all built on sand. Cheap credit and corrupt politicians turned a boom town into a ghost town. Today, many of the America’s Cup buildings lie empty.

$300 million

When you are worth more than $40 billion, as Ellison is, losing battles matters more than losing money. Some say that he spent more than $300 million on Oracle Team USA's successful defence of the trophy in September 2013 in what turned out to be one of the greatest sporting stories, with the Oracle racing team beating Emirates Team New Zealand 9-8 after trailing 8-1.

Building two massive catamarans — a racer and a spare — and running a 130-strong team of sailors, designers and so on, does not come cheap, especially with the leading staff on salaries of at least $20,000 a month, often a lot more.

Meanwhile, Land Rover BAR's bid for the 2017 America’s Cup is expected to cost at least $100 million. One thing is for certain ahead of next summer’s Bermuda showdown — whoever wins will have seriously deep pockets.

l2 US 22 Intrepid

1967 & 1970 winner of the america's cup.

Year Built: 1967 Yacht Designer: Sparkman & Stephens Yacht Builder: Minneford Yacht Yard, City Island, NY Syndicate: N/A

Twice Winner of the America’s Cup, the incomparable 12 Meter Intrepid is close to the hearts of many sailors. 12 US 22 is one of the most famous racing yachts of all time.

Built of double planked mahogany on white oak frames, Intrepid marked a major breakthrough in Twelve Meter design, separating the rudder from the keel, including a “bustle” or “kicker”, and adding a trim tab. This unique underbody type, designed by the legendary Olin Stephens, was imitated on every subsequent Cup boat until Australia II , came out with her winged keel in 1983.

Skippered by “Bus” Mosbacher, she completely crushed the competition, including the unfortunate Australian challenger Dame Pattie , to win the Cup in 1967.   After being revamped by Britton Chance in 1970, with Bill Ficker at the helm, Intrepid sailed to her second America’s Cup victory, defeating Gretel II .

Intrepid remained very competitive well into the era of the aluminum 12 Meter yachts. Redesigned yet again in 1974 by Olin Stephens and his team at Sparkman & Stephens, she competed for an unprecedented third time under the command of Californian Gerry Driscoll.   Intrepid came within one race of becoming the only three time America’s Cup Defender in history, losing the final race of the Defender trials to Ted Hood on the brand new Courageous .

ACC proudly offers the incomparable Intrepid for charter out of Newport, RI – strong, fast and graceful she provides a lifetime of cherished memories for all who sail her,

In an adapted format it will showcase advances in innovation and sustainability

The 2024 Boat Show is preparing a special edition within the framework of the America’s Cup

The Barcelona Boat Show will participate in the 37th edition of the America’s Cup, which will take place for the first time in Barcelona’s waters, in an informative format specially adapted for the occasion. In this way, it will take advantage of the regatta’s setting to showcase the sector’s advances in key fields such as sustainability and technology, as well as to generate promotional and networking opportunities.

The America’s Cup, which will occupy the entire Port Vell, limits the organisation of the Barcelona show in its traditional format this year, both for logistical and scheduling reasons. However, the event, as a key player in the promotion and dissemination of recreational sailing and sports in our country, wants to be at the side of the event considered the formula 1 of sailing.

For this reason, the Barcelona event will move away from its usual commercial format to present a special edition where companies in the sector will present their latest innovations, which anticipate the trends in sailing, as well as a sample of the progress of the strategic sectors that will mark the future of the sector and the visualisation of the America’s Cup as a key competition for the evolution and transfer of innovation to the industry.

In this sense, next autumn the Boat Show will bring together a specialised selection of brands and professionals who are leading the application of design, technology and materials towards a more innovative, efficient and environmentally friendly nautical sector to disseminate the latest advances in clean propulsion systems, sustainable boats and foils, among others.

Preparing for 2025 The Boat Show’s activity within the framework of the America’s Cup, whose design and location are still being finalised, will also serve to present its new Strategic Plan, which will specify the objectives and a new organisational model for the event for the period 2025-2027, with the aim of promoting the growth and differentiation of the emblematic show in future editions.

MAGICAL BARCELONA SHINES FOR THE AMERICANS AND SWISS

image1

Eager to get stuck into their new blocks of winter training, NYYC American Magic and Alinghi Red Bull Racing waited until the afternoon for a building southerly to filter in up and across the Balearic Sea whilst still bearing the westerly rollers that build up off the La Barceloneta beachfront and make foiling sailing so tricky.

america's cup sailboat

Operating quite different strategies – NYYC American Magic starting their two-boat training whilst Alinghi Red Bull Racing go for development at full scale with their AC75 ‘BoatZero’ – this was an engrossing afternoon of watching the very best in the world ply their trade at what’s becoming the business end of both fascinating campaigns. 

america's cup sailboat

For the Americans it was the day that they were looking forward to with both of the AC40’s ‘America’ and ‘Magic’ converted over the weekend into LEQ12’s with the addition of upgraded starboard foils that they tested so solidly and extensively throughout the summer in Barcelona. Perhaps more for validation than anything else, the team were looking again at decisions that had been derived but in the 12-15 knots of breeze when the racing commenced, it was perhaps outright skill and racecraft that won the day. Tom Slingsby and Paul Goodison sailed ‘America’ like they stole it and were that ‘click’ ahead in all races, able to eke out strong positions and then defend like crazy with the added advantage of dirty air aiding their cause.

america's cup sailboat

Flight Control and wave management was the name of the game today – oh how they probably wish they had the extra length of the AC75 – and the numerous splashdowns amidst clouds of cold winter spray were par for the course. Lucas Calabrese and Harry Melges took the wheels of ‘Magic’ today and ended up calling it a day as the breeze came to its peak.

america's cup sailboat

Tough day on the water and as Riley Gibbs alluded to in interview afterwards there was a lot going on: “The majority of it came down to stability around the track. We kind of saw that it was a pretty asymmetric day as far as the breeze direction and the sea state and yeah just stability and starting...fortunately we likely won't have a mistral hopefully at least during the summer you know kind of developing these long westerly swells that come in, they're pretty challenging, it poses quite an issue for the flight controllers to tackle tack to tack, very asymmetric in set up possibly but yeah difficult.”

america's cup sailboat

Talking about the asymmetric set up on the foils, with America running the silver Wing 03 and Magic running the all-black Wing 04 (we think), Riley responded: “We're coming into the tail end of foil design and always trying to eke out the most in our performance so we're just looking back and confirming our suspicions on what we learned over the summer.”

america's cup sailboat

Whilst American Magic blasted around short upwind/downwind tracks on the America’s Cup course, the magnificent sight of Alinghi Red Bull Racing at full bore, joined them having docked out just behind and plied their early session out towards the airport waiting for the breeze to fill in. As it came in from the south west, the Swiss came down with it towards the racecourse and out further east towards the Forum district.

america's cup sailboat

With slightly less swell than yesterday, what was interesting to note was the overall trim of the boat being far more upright and ‘standing’ on the immersed foil – perhaps a nod to what we’re seeing down in Auckland with Emirates Team New Zealand on their LEQ12 moded AC40. Hardly any windward heel was observable upwind even as the breeze came in – interesting.

america's cup sailboat

Once a course had been laid by the Alinghi Red Bull Racing support crew, ‘BoatZero’ was released for some fast laps where upwind the trim was low to the deck whilst downwind flight looked far more assured and powerful. A caught-on-camera moment at a top mark though showed that there will be plenty to debrief afterwards as the team went for a bear-away and immediate gybe, heading up high and then broaching on the bear-away and never getting it quite back under control again. AC75s bite and when they do, they bite hard. The Swiss did a good job to bail out, head up and stop the motion.

america's cup sailboat

Speaking afterwards, Nicolas Rolaz, former Optimist World Champion and a real find of this Cup cycle spoke to the recon and gave his usual terrific interview. Asked about the communication loop on a busy day like today, he said: “Communication onboard is a is a tricky subject. Even when it's a flat sea state it's something we're always working on and making sure it’s going well, trying to improve it, because it's going to be crucial for racing and we have a really strong base, like a good communication playbook, and still working on it so I wouldn't say it differs much from a flat day to a wavy day, everybody has defined roles and knows what to say and when to say it...keywords are being used and everybody knows what's going on and the helmsmen are putting words on their actions which we need to be able to sail the boat.”

america's cup sailboat

One observable from the on-water recon was the team’s use of the double boards through the gybes at times and something quite unique to the Swiss in their continual raising and lowering of the windward board downwind. Nico commented on this, saying: “So, like people know in this last period we're working on our systems, on the systems on the boat, and it's part of the work we're doing trying to make our systems work better and trying new board drops, sailing with two boards, especially for the start, it's going to be needed, so just practice.”

america's cup sailboat

The mighty Bulls called it time at just after 4pm with almost four hours completed – valuable training, vital time-on-the-water from this most hard-driving of all the teams in the Louis Vuitton 37 th America’s Cup. (Magnus Wheatley)

On-Water Recon Report – NYYC American Magic: NYYC American Magic Had to be patient early in today's two boat session to allow the Barcelona southerly sea breeze to make an appearance, but once it did it quickly established itself and soon developed into a solid system that ranged from 11 to 15 knots.

The team's two AC40s – both in LEQ12 mode with custom foils on the starboard side – were rigged and launched by 1045. A new stubby antenna was observed on top of Magic's mast.

The two boats docked out together at 1200 but then had to wait at the harbour entrance with mainsails up for an hour to allow the sea breeze to build from sub-five knots to around 7 knots by 1315.

america's cup sailboat

After some separate free warm up and free sailing, the two boats – both sailing with J1 headsails – rendezvoused at the leeward gate of the earlier-set windward / leeward racecourse in front of the W Hotel. America arrived and rounded the left-hand mark but appeared to lose control mid-rounding and did a little hobby-horsing before coming to a stop.

With the breeze now touching 11-12 knots both boats swapped headsails – America to a J2 C3 and Magic to a J2 C4. One practice race was sailed in which America won the start and sailed away to an easy victory while Magic appeared to struggle a little with maintaining steady flight and suffered a splashdown on the first downwind run. Both crews were obviously pushing hard all around the course and with the sea state building quickly throughout the afternoon there were plenty of touchdowns and boat handling challenges.

By 1500 the breeze was in the 12-15 knot range, necessitating a second headsail change: America to a J3 C1 and Magic to a J3-5 (OD). Two more races were sailed in which – despite some super close prestart / start action – America won both. By the second race the breeze was up to 15 knots and after Magic splashed down on the first upwind the race was stopped at the first leeward gate. Similarly, the third race was stopped at the end of the first beat after Magic splashed down and stopped upwind.

After a 30-minute delay Magic sailed to the harbour entrance and dropped sails. Meanwhile America sailed a free windward leeward lap before a thunderstorm started to roll in from the north. America entered the harbour at 1630. Both boats were back on the dock by 1650. Another sailing session is scheduled for tomorrow Wednesday February 27.

On-Water Recon Report – Alinghi Red Bull Racing:  Alinghi Red Bull Racing's Boat Zero was rolled out at 10:00 h. The boat was prepared and craned into the water by 10:30 h. When alongside, sailors and engineers checked all of the boat's systems, including foil arms, mainsheet systems, mast rotation, and jib sheet systems, to ensure that everything was in top condition before the sailing session.

At 11:25 h, they prepared two jib sails on one of the chase boats: J4-1R and J3-1R, and at 12:30 h, they brought the mainsail M2-2R and the jib J2-2L and placed them on Boat Zero. The boat docked out at 13:00 h, and after hoisting the sails, the chase boat towed it out of the harbour in a SE direction to an area where a racecourse was set with four training marks. It was 13:30 h, and there was almost no wind. After 15 minutes of waiting, the wind came in from TWD 200º with 7-10 knots intensity. From there, the sailing session was conducted as follows:

america's cup sailboat

Stint 1 (13:45 h to 14:15 h): The session began with a test of the boat on a not-very-long upwind leg with three clean tacks in between. After 500 m from the last tack, they bore away into a downwind course, performing 5 gybes (3 clean and 2 'touch and go'). After the last gybe, they stopped and conducted a quick team meeting, and five minutes later, they continued sailing, starting again with a small upwind leg and a perfect tack, after which they decided to bear away into a downwind. After two clean gybes, they went into a luffing manoeuvre and stopped the boat. The wind had increased, and they decided to replace their current jib with the J4-1R.

Stint 2 (14:15 h to 15:00 h): The wind shifted slightly to the right, TWD 220º with 10 to 14 knots intensity. After hoisting the J4-1R jib, they repeated the same process as before to start sailing. They began sailing upwind on portside, then, after a few meters, they tacked and quickly bore away to a downwind course. After a couple of minutes, without performing any gybes, they went for a luffing manoeuvre, then, after a short upwind, they tacked and went for a long port tack upwind with a TWA of approximately 40-45º and 30 to 35 knots of speed. The swell was from the SSE that day, so mainly on port tack, one could experience some differences in speed when Boat Zero was going down the wave while going upwind. They tacked again and, while sailing upwind on starboard tack, they started to lift and lower the windward arm several times. In an interview, Nicolas Rollaz mentioned that "they were trying new board drops to improve their system."

After these tests, they bore away into a downwind course on a long starboard line. After a perfect gybe, they put both boards down and started sailing downwind, performing 5 gybes in a row, an exercise set for pre-starts mode training according to Nicolas Rolaz.

Then, they suddenly lifted an arm and started sailing in a long portside upwind back to the starting line of the course area that was supposedly prepared for training.

Stint 3 (15:00 h to 15:35 h): At 15:00 h, they stopped to change the GoPro batteries, and there was also a replacement from the power crew. At 15:20 h, they started again and went for a not-very-long upwind leg, performing 3 tacks along the way. After the third tack, they bore away and went downwind. After performing three clean gybes, they decided to stop. The coach boat came alongside and threw them a towing line. They dropped the sails, and Boat Zero was towed back to port.

Docking was completed at 16:10 h. Mention that today Yves Detrey (Trimmer) and Nicolas Charbonnier (Helmsman) they were onboard in the extra seats that Boat Zero has with the purpose of make the crew swap easier when need, but it seems that it never happened.

As a Summary Alinghi Red Bull Racing Team today sailed for 80 minutes, performed 27 manoeuvres: 80 % fully foiling and sailed with 2 different jibs.
