Solent Events are immensely proud to be able to announce that we will be official suppliers to the America’s Cup World Series, presented by Emirates Team New Zealand in Portsmouth this year.
We’ll be providing exclusive Yacht and Power Boat Charters to view this event from an exclusive VIP area on the water that should give the best views available. With options for groups of between 6 and 30 on one vessel, this will be a great way to entertain guests, reward staff or get together with a group of friends to see this major sporting event.
As the America’s Cup itself is taking place on the other side of the world in Auckland in 2021, what a treat it is to have this amazing event happening on The Solent in the UK. The cup defenders, Emirates Team New Zealand will battle it out against teams from Italy, America and of course Ineos Team UK led by five times Olympic medalist Sir Ben Ainslee in this precursor to the main event. With a daily ‘dock out’ and pre-race exhibition sailing prior to the main racing, there’ll be plenty to see whilst the hospitality onboard our charter vessels will ensure all are ‘fed and watered’ to the very highest standard.
Technological boundaries have been demolished in the design and production of these foiling 75 foot monohulls that quite literally fly! 11 sailors on each will keep these beasts in flight in what is expected to be very close racing between Thursday 4th – Sunday 7th June 2020.
Southsea common will present a festival style race village with live main stage events & expert race commentary. For information on shore based hospitality, click here.
We simply can’t wait to see this amazing spectacle unfold right on our doorstep!
