AC 45: the Cup before the Cup
To pass the time, and to allow the crews to sail whilst awaiting the big showdown, which will take place this summer on the much-awaited AC 72s, the America’s Cup crews are still racing on the AC 45s.
The organisers estimate that over a million people crowded into the village and along the sea front at Naples to watch this week of cut-throat racing… Which just goes to show that sailing as a ‘show’ really works!
The next meeting will be in San Francisco, for the Louis Vuitton Cup in July, to select the challenger who will have the honour of racing against the American defender.
