For over three centuries, the mystique that is Bermuda has been slowly evolving, with each generation adding its own tales to the story. Now there’s an exciting new chapter being written as Bermuda becomes Home of the 2017 America’s Cup.
Bermuda is composed of 181 islands, totalling 21 square miles, and has just over 60,000 residents. As you would expect in a place with so many islands, water activities are the life-blood of Bermuda.
Renowned for crystal blue water and beautiful pink sand beaches, Bermuda’s Great Sound will form a natural amphitheatre for the race course while the planned America’s Cup Village at the Royal Naval Dockyard, will be the beating heart of the America’s Cup experience.
Featuring all the team bases, a pit row, food and beverage, entertainment and concerts, the America’s Cup Village will be a perfect destination for hard-core America’s Cup fans and newbies alike.
And the racing conditions are exceptional. Historical wind data indicates there should be racing conditions 90% of the time in June. Conditions are varied, increasing the challenge for designers and sailors.
