Front Row Seat for the 35th America’s Cup
Being a sailor and a self-described racing sailor, I wondered, “Who wouldn’t want a front row seat to the America’s Cup?” The America’s Cup Event Authority had several options for the venue for the 35th AC in 2017, and they selected the beautiful island of Bermuda. So, one might ask, “Why Bermuda?”
Well, the racing will take place on the Great Sound, a terrific enclosed body of water that offers flat seas and consistent wind…perfect for foiling multihulls. Bermuda is well known for its hospitality…wonderful restaurants, beautiful hotels and extensive use of their greatest resource, the water. Plus, they have a very engaged population that do all in their power to make you feel welcome while you are on their island.
So, how do you get to have that front row seat? Well, you can fly there – it’s only an hour and a half flight. You could book a cruise ship…fun, but doesn’t lend itself to the full island experience. The best way for we sailors is to sail there, and what better way to do that than with 60 or 70 of your closest friends as part of the Marion Bermuda Race.
