San Diego Unified Port District Welcomes ACWS

September 29, 2011

Unified Port of San DiegoThe San Diego Unified Port District is pleased to welcome you to San Diego and beautiful San Diego Bay for the America’s Cup World Series – San Diego, Nov. 12-20, 2011.

Having hosted the America’s Cup in 1988, 1992 and 1995, we’re no strangers to the prestigious event. The Bay even boasts “America’s Cup Harbor” located on Shelter Island.

This time around, we’re excited to bring the action inside San Diego Bay and allow spectators the chance to watch exhilarating sailing, sometimes just feet away from the new high-tech AC45 boats.

For spectators, San Diego Bay offers the perfect natural stadium sailing environment to experience the America’s Cup World Series from many different viewing venues. However, you’ll be amazed at all there is to do and see after the races throughout downtown and on along our waterfront. Excellent lodging, restaurants, hospitality and attractions are within close proximity from the America’s Cup Fan Experience, Event Village and Team Headquarters located at the Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier.

On behalf of the Port of San Diego, its member cities of Chula Vista, Coronado, Imperial Beach, National City and San Diego, we are proud to host the America’s Cup World Series and hope you’ll join us for an electrifying nine days of world-class sailboat racing. We hope you’ll join us on the Big Bay!

Plymouth Stop of the America’s Cup World Series a success

September 13, 2011

Plymouth, England is the second stop in the inaugural America’s Cup World Series (AC World Series). The event will be held September 10-18, 2011, and will feature both fleet and match racing.


World-renowned for its rich seafaring history, Plymouth has seen countless ships set sail on great voyages of discovery and to settle new worlds. It was from this city on the south west coast of England that the Pilgrim Fathers left to establish a new colony in North America in 1620.

Located at the centre of Devon and Cornwall, the UK’s most popular tourist destination outside of London, the city’s spectacular waterfront location makes it one of the major sailing centres and the perfect venue for showcasing world-class maritime and sporting events. Home to the largest number of maritime and marine businesses in the region, Plymouth also offers outstanding sight-seeing, shopping and cultural opportunities.
