Description

San Francisco Bay will be home to the 2013 America’s Cup Finals and the Louis Vuitton Cup, America's Cup Challenger Series. Additionally, there will be two America’s Cup World Series events in San Francisco in 2012.

This marks the first time the America’s Cup has been hosted in the United States since 1995.

The America's Cup World Series is a regular circuit of regattas, bringing Cup racing to top venues around the world.

The AC World Series allows the teams and their sailors to prepare for the Louis Vuitton Cup, the America's Cup Challenger Series and the America's Cup Finals in the heat of battle.

With the switch to the AC45 class of cutting-edge multihulls, powered by towering wingsails, this time on the race course will benefit all of the sailors.

Equally, the regattas are bringing America's Cup racing to fans around the world, giving hundreds of thousands of people the opportunity to experience the action up close and personal.

Both fleet and match racing will be a part of each event, testing the skill of the crews as never before.

The venues and dates for the 2011 America's Cup World Series will be announced early in the year, with the remaining calendar confirmed later in the coming months.

The racing will be on the AC45 catamarans and 2012 will see America's Cup World Series events in San Francisco, the host city of the 34th America's Cup.

The America's Cup World Series could continue beyond the 34th America's Cup, allowing for a regular calendar of Cup racing to the benefit of sailors, fans, teams, and all stakeholders.
