America's Cup

Next America's Cup set for early 2021

The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron and Circolo della Vela Sicilia as the Challenger of Record, set likely date for the next America's Cup Match in early 2021.

Together with their respective representative teams Emirates Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa Challenge, they have announced that the Protocol establishing the parameters for the 36th America's Cup will be released in September 2017.

The proposed dates for the event will be further detailed in the Protocol but the likely date for the next America's Cup Match and the preceding Challenger Selection Series is in Auckland in early 2021 during the New Zealand summer.

In recognition of the fundamental condition of the Deed of Gift that the Cup be preserved as a perpetual Challenge Cup for friendly competition between foreign countries, the Protocol will contain a "constructed in country" requirement for competing yachts and a nationality requirement for competing crew members.
