Racing

The 36th America's Cup presented by PRADA includes three events spanning December to March - the America's Cup World Series Auckland, the PRADA Cup and the main event, the 36th America's Cup Match. With races sailed closer to the shore than any past America's Cup campaign, the events will be inclusive and inviting to anyone who wants to get in on the action.

Races will take place on race days between 4:00 and 6:00 pm each day and are expected to be about 35 minutes long, including pre-start. 

Ways to get in on the action

Open daily, this completely free public space will bring the 36th America’s Cup to life with local New Zealand food and beverage and dedicated performance spaces. The Cup Village will be open one week prior to the first regatta in December.
