36th America's Cup be part of the action

36th America's Cup

Steeped in America’s Cup history, Auckland has previously hosted the competition in 2000 and 2003 and will once again provide the battlefield for the 36th edition of the America's Cup in 2021.

Following their successful challenge for the America’s Cup in Bermuda in 2017, Emirates Team New Zealand have chosen to bring this prestigious sailing competition back to the City of Sails to defend their title.

Raced on board highly technical, 75ft foiling monohull yachts, the 36th America’s Cup, PRADA Cup and Challenger World Series will provide spectators with some of the most exciting match racing ever seen and we want to give you a chance to experience the on-water action from one of our sail or power vessels.

With various vessel options available for private charter, we can cater to a variety of group sizes, providing spectator options for the various sailing events that will be taking place as part of the 36th America’s Cup. 

Key Dates are: 

December 17 - 20 2020 America's Cup World Series - Auckland Leg
January 15 - February 22 2021  Prada Cup Challenger Series
March 6 - 21 2021  America's Cup Match
