September 4, 2015

In advance of the America’s Cup World Series race in Bermuda next month, the ACEA released a video today [Sept 4] entitled “the Race to Bermuda is on,” which features a look at sailing both here and overseas, as well as Minister for Economic Development Dr Grant Gibbons and Oracle Team USA skipper Jimmy Spithill.

Six America’s Cup teams will compete on the America’s Cup race course on the Great Sound in Bermuda on October 17 and 18, with the event also set to include activities both on land and on-water, with food and drink vendors, exhibitors, a concert and more.

The ACEA previously said, “Along with the racing in the Great Sound, Hamilton’s Front Street will play host to the free ‘Our Bermuda’ Festival and Event Village.

“The Festival will feature the very best of Bermuda including food and drink vendors, exhibitors, family friendly activities both on land and on-water from Friday evening through to Sunday evening. Saturday evening will also include a concert at the Fan Zone featuring an exciting line-up of international and local artists.

“On Thursday, ahead of the opening of the Event Village, the America’s Cup Community Sailing initiative, the Endeavour Program, is planning to open its new facility in St. Georges, with a full afternoon of activities on the east end of the island.

“On Friday, the teams will take part in official practice racing before the point scoring races on Saturday and Sunday afternoon. All the weekend racing action will be accessible to the public on land, via big screens with live commentary at the Fan Zone.

“Spectator boats will also be available, along with spectator craft zones alongside the race course. The full on-the-water viewing program will be released in the coming days.”
