America's Cup Cruises

The 2017 America's Cup races will be in Bermuda, and you can take a cruise there while it's happening. See the schedule of departures below.

The America's Cup qualifying round is May 26 to June 12, 2017. The challenger playoffs are June 7 to June 12.

The head-to-head America's Cup Match between the current cup holder (Oracle Team USA) and the top challenger will be Saturday June 17, Sunday June 18, Saturday June 24, Sunday June 25, Monday June 26 and Tuesday June 27. It is a best of 13 series of races, so at the earliest it could end on June 25.

Enjoy this short preview video of the Bermuda Americas Cup. It promises to be quite an event.

For 2017, the America's Cup sailboats will be 62-foot foiling catamarans. They are very fast and it is dramatic when they are up on the foil.

Boats must be in the 45 to 50 feet length range. The America's Cup is the oldest trophy in international sports.
