The multi-day sailing event will feature some of the world’s best sailors, racing the fastest boats, in front of the backdrop of New York’s iconic harbor and landmarks.

Six teams — defending champion Oracle Team USA, Emirates Team New Zealand, Land Rover BAR from Great Britain, Artemis Racing from Sweden, SoftBank Team Japan, and Groupama Team France — will compete in the New York race, vying for points that count towards the final competition for the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda in 2017.

All six teams will race against one another at the same time, in a fleet racing format. Weather will determine the exact race course as well as the total number of races per day [up to a maximum of three], and a New York champion will be crowned on Sunday, May 8, after the final race.
