• Americas Cup Auckland best place to view sea kayak

    Americas Cup, Auckland 2021

Auckland Sea Kayaks is able to offer you a unique vantage point to view the racing of the Prada Cup and the Americas Cup. Depending on the race course, we either view the racing from the summit of Rangitoto Island (course A, B and C) or Motukorea / Browns Island (course D and E) which are some of the highest points in the harbor. The summer of 2021 is all about being on the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park and experience the excitement of the 36th Americas Cup.

 

Prada Cup
Friday 15th of January – Monday 22nd of February 2021

The Prada Cup will commence in January 2021 in Auckland and will see the Challenger teams race in a round robin format to determine which Challenger will line up against the Defender, Emirates Team New Zealand, in the quest for the oldest trophy in sport, the America’s Cup. The regatta runs from Friday 15th of January with the final race scheduled for Monday 22nd of February.

Auckland Sea Kayaks can get you into the right location to view this exciting event.

36th Amercias cup
Saturday 6th – Monday 15th of March

The 36th Americas Cup Match will be held in Auckland, New Zealand, from the 6th to the 15th of March 2021 and will see the Defender Emirates Team New Zealand racing against the winner of the PRADA Cup, the Challenger Selection Series, with the winner being the first team to score seven points.

Seeing this world class event from either the summit of Rangitoto or Motukorea / Browns island gives you a unique vantage point and getting there by sea kayak makes it a life time memory.

The 36th America’s Cup is the upcoming edition of the America’s Cup yacht race. It will be contested between the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron’s team, Emirates Team New Zealand, and the winner of the 2021 Prada Cup. All contenders will be sailing the AC75 high performance class of hydrofoil monohull – with speeds up to 50 knots expected.

The “Challenger of Record” is Circolo della Vela Sicilia, represented by their team Luna Rossa Challenge, and also responsible for organising all the heat events prior to the America’s Cup match.

The “Defending Club” is the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, who are responsible for organising the America’s Cup match itself.
