The most important changes were already rumored during the past weeks: The AC75 Class will be a monohull - obviously - 75 foot long, not yet decided whether foiling or not. Strict nationality rules shall make the Cup a "Competition among Nations". The boats must be laminated in the country of the competitor. 20% or three crew, whichever is higher, must be true nationals (i.e. citizens) of the competing yacht club. The remainder of the crew can be made up of temporary residents of the challenging yacht club’s country. The Challenger Selection Series will be called Prada Cup. The intended venue is Auckland, New Zealand with the Match to be raced in March 2021, preceded by The Prada Cup in January and February 2021, details to be announced by August 31st, 2018.

AC-50 - 35th America's Cup - Hamilton BER - Day 4 - Decision today ?

 AC-50 - 35th America's Cup - Hamilton BER - Day 4 - Decision today ? Light winds prevailed again yesterday on the Great Sound of Bermuda and the Defender 'Team Oracle' with Jimmy Spithill AUS was without any chances against the convincing 'Team New Zealand', not due to lack of speed, but above all because Spithill and his team made too many errors. Match point today as with a 6-1 score, ....just one more victory of Peter Burling NZL and his team will bring the Cup 'home' to New Zealand. This could happen this evening UTC.
