The opportunity for teams campaigning toward the 36th America’s Cup to get a measure of each other will be at the first America’s Cup World Series event which will take place October 2019 in Cagliari, Sardinia.
“The first America’s Cup World Series (ACWS) event is the first opportunity for the Challenger teams and Defender to line up against each other. We are confident that Cagliari will offer excellent racing conditions and that the Sardinian hospitality will make it a very memorable event,” said Laurent Esquier, CEO of the Challenger of Record for the 36th America’s Cup.
As stated in the Protocol, there will be one or two events during the second half of 2019 announced on or before March 31, 2019, and three events in 2020 announced on or before November 30, 2019.
The overall results from the ACWS will determine the seeding for the Challenger Selection Series which will be used to select the Challenger to face the Defender in the 36th America’s Cup in 2021.
