About the Race
The America’s Cup is the oldest and arguably the most coveted trophy in international sport, dating back to 1851. To win the hosting spot for the 2017 event, Bermuda beat out San Francisco (host of 2014 34th Cup) and Chicago, with a bid of $77 million US dollars. Known as the “Land of Wind and Water”, Bermuda already reports that sponsors and spectators are buying up space on land and on the sea. In this world class sailing race, 5 rival teams will compete to defeat current defenders Team ORACLE.
About the Racers
The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series will use foiling AC45 catamarans, also known as AC45f, a one-design wing-sail catamaran with foils designed specifically for the event by the Oracle Racing engineering team.
What is the cost of being a player in the Indy 500 of the ocean? Back in 2013, the 62′ Catamarans cost $8Million to $10Million per boat and most all teams have a back-up! Larry Ellis of ORACLE spent close to $250-300Million defending the title. The entry fee is $3Million.
Currently the ORACLE Team AC45f is being built in New Zealand. All teams agreed that a 45′ Catamaran would cost significantly less per racing yacht. Only in December of this year, will they be able to start practicing and tweaking. Along with the redesign, a series of rule changes will reduce team operational costs, essentially by racing in a smaller boat.
