This weekend is the America’s Cup!
This weekend Portsmouth is hosting the America’s Cup along
the seafront, so we’ve answered all the questions you might have about the
event. The forecast says that we will have more beautiful weather later in the week,
and we highly recommend you go down at some point over the weekend to join in
with all the fun!
What is the America’s Cup?
Six international
teams made up of  elite sailors, are set to compete in the America’s Cup
World Series in Portsmouth. They use high-speed and technologically-advanced
carbon-fiber catamarans. The racing circuit has been held around the world
since 2015 and will finish in 2017 in Bermuda.
Portsmouth also held the America’s Cup last year in July, but many of the races
were cancelled due to terrible weather. We are in England after all!
When is the America’s Cup?
It’s this weekend, on Friday,
Saturday and Sunday. The event starts at 10.00am each day!
Do I need tickets?
To enter the actual race village
you will need a ticket, which costs £25 for the day. However, there is lots of
action happening down the waterfront, and the atmosphere will be amazing, so
it’s worth heading down just to check it out.

There will be incredible aerial
displays every day from 12.00 pm, plus lots of other amazing things to see and
do within the race village. We will certainly be buying a ticket and spending
the day there, it’s a guaranteed amazing time!
