September 9, 2015

The America’s Cup Bermuda [ACBDA] will host a public Town Hall meeting on Thursday, September 17 from 5:30pm to 7:00pm at the St Paul AME Centennial Hall in Hamilton.

“The meeting will provide the public with a progress report on the 35th America’s Cup along with important up-to-date details on the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series event taking place from October 16-18 in Bermuda this year,” the ACBDA said.

“Even before Bermuda earned the right to host the 2017 America’s Cup finals, we were awarded the hosting of an America’s Cup World Series event,” said Mike Winfield, CEO of the ACBDA. “

“This is an extremely exciting opportunity in its own right, with Bermuda being in front of literally millions of viewers. We want to make the sure the Bermuda public is aware of all the activities surrounding next month’s event.”

“The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series will see racing between all six America’s Cup Teams, while Front Street will host the “Our Bermuda” Festival and Event Village, including a concert featuring international headliners,” the ACBDA said.

“The community will be informed about all the activities making up the Festival and Event Village, as well as important viewing and safety information for on-water spectators of the racing.

“In addition to these updates, the public will learn more about the Endeavour Community Sailing programme and hear from a panel of speakers including the Minister of Economic Development, Dr. Grant Gibbons; America’s Cup Event Authority [ACEA] CEO Sir Russell Coutts; and ACBDA Chairman, Peter Durhager.”
