America’s Cup World Series – Portsmouth

July 22, 2016 - July 24, 2016


The America’s Cup World Series will be a spectacle not to be missed this summer with the AC45’s – 45 foot foiling catamarans racing off Southsea seasfront. If you want to watch this racing up close from on the water. We will be there on all three days of Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

FRIDAY 22nd JULY 2016

Friday is all about speed and flying – wings, water and wheels. Watch the Moths and Kitesurfing displays in the morning, see the incredible Red Arrows aerial display before the teams and boats start their preview races – the first chance to see them line up against each other, some practise starts and two preview races.


Saturday is the BIG DAY – sailing gets serious where points are won or lost, points that are pivotal on the road to a team winning the America’s Cup in 2017. Come and support home team Land Rover Ben Ainslie Racing and see them notch up their race points today. Two races and lots of action before and after.


And so to the finale – Super Sunday is the last day and the day the winner claims victory for this ACWS event. Double points are on offer today so it will be all open until the last race. A full day of on water and aerial displays.
