July 20, 2016 | 0 Comments

The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series is set to take place from July 21 to July 24 in Portsmouth, with a video preview highlighting the action to come.

The video’s narrator says, “The America’s Cup returns to Europe – Portsmouth, south of England. It was precisely here 165 years ago in 1851 that the first race was held.

“Today, the America’s Cup is faster, more spectacular, and more accessible than ever before.”

The event’s official website says, “The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series is a racing circuit featuring the best sailors in the world, competing on foiling, wing-sailed 45ft catamarans.

“The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series is the first stage of competition in the 35th America’s Cup and began in the summer of 2015 and will culminate in the America’s Cup [Finals] in 2017 in Bermuda.
