America’s Cup Newport Begins!

Narragansett Bay and Newport, RI are alive with the America’s Cup experience this week. The America’s Cup World Series kicked off on June 23 and will run through July 1. The nine-day international sporting competition will see fast action on the race course and off the water. Thousands of fans can enjoy live music, access to sailing stars and interactive displays on shore at the America’s Cup Race Village located at Fort Adams.

Spectators will be able to watch live racing with live commentary and visit the America’s Cup Experience, where visitors will get a taste of the teams and what it’s like to sail on a high-speed catamaran. While the athletes take a break from the action, visitors can take on the Racing Simulator and sail their own match race test, video-game style.
