Sailing takes flight! The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series Portsmouth returns: 21-24 July 2016

The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series returns to Portsmouth in July, 2016 and the most spectacular show in sailing is set to be even more incredible.

New look ‘Race Village’ for 2016

The first Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series Portsmouth event, held in July 2015, saw close to a quarter of a million people visit Portsmouth to watch the six America’s Cup teams battle it out on high-speed, flying catamarans. Event organisers TEAMORIGIN conducted in-depth research into the event, listening to feedback from fans, visitors, local businesses and residents, to deliver a more focused experience for 2016. There will be a new-look ‘Race Village’ in a compact but content rich area in Southsea located around the Southsea Castle area locally known as 'Bandstand Field' and 'Castle Field'. The main Southsea Common area is no longer part of the Race Village and becomes a non-ticketed access area with no restrictions.

Racing will again be held directly in front of the ‘Race Village’ making it the place to enjoy views of the exhilarating action. The ticketed ‘Race Village’ will also be packed with new innovative displays and features including more hands-on exhibits giving insights into this unique competition, featuring an all new Tech-Zone and Sailing Team Hubs, where visitors can get an up-close look at the sailing ‘pit lanes’. Fans can also listen to expert insight with the live Dock-out and Dock-in shows bringing the sailing teams to the fans before and after racing.
