AMERICA’S CUP TOUR – EAST COAST LEG
The America’s Cup has launched a tour leading up to the 2017 America’s Cup races in Bermuda. The tour began in July 2015 with the West Coast leg leaving from San Diego, California, traveling up the coast to British Columbia. On April 13th, 2016, America will embark on its East Coast leg continuing its role as an official ambassador of the America’s Cup.
Troy Sears will take the modern replica of the world’s most famous racing yacht, America, to sailing communities in the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. This will give sailing fans of all ages a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come aboard a replica of the vessel that first won the America’s Cup in 1851.
The mission is twofold: to spark new excitement in the current yachting community about the latest America’s Cup racing; and to engage the next generation of America’s Cup fans by highlighting the technologies that have elevated the sport to its present state.
