Americian Cup Campaign
The following schedule was copied from the Latitule 38 current
Just so everybody is up to speed, this is the basic America's Cup schedule for 2011:
Aug. 6-14 — World Series racing in the 45-ft cats in breezy Cascais, Portugal.
Sept. 10-18 — World Series racing in the 45-ft cats in Plymouth, England.
October or November — World Series racing in 45-ft cats in San Diego. Yes, everyone should at least be practicing when the Ha-Ha fleet is in town.
As for 2012:
Jan. 1 — First-day teams will be allowed to sail the 72-ft cats.
There will be up to seven regattas around the world, with the venues and dates yet to be determined. We hope and certainly expect that one of the venues will be San Francisco Bay. The 45-ft cats will be used until March 31, the 72-ft cats after that.
Nov. 1 — Teams will be allowed to launch a second 72-ft cat.
As for 2013:
There are three preliminary regattas planned, with venues and dates to be determined.
July to Sept. — Louis Vuitton Cup on San Francisco Bay to determine the Challenger.
Sept. 7-? — The America's Cup on San Francisco Bay
