The America’s Cup will start on October 12, 2024

We now know the start date of the 37th edition of the America’s Cup. The oldest sailing race will start on October 12, 2024 in Barcelona waters, organizers announced on Wednesday.

The winners of the last America’s Cup, the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron club and the Emirates Team New Zealand crew had chosen the Catalan city last March to succeed Auckland (New Zealand).

The mythical competition will thus begin on October 12 with two races on the program, followed by two more the next day before a two-day break. It will continue on October 16 with a new race followed by the final of the Women’s America’s Cup, a parallel circuit set up for the 37th edition.
