The Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series

The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series is a racing circuit featuring the best sailors in the world, competing on foiling, wing-sailed 45ft catamarans. The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series is the first stage of competition in the 35th America’s Cup and began in the summer of 2015 and will culminate in the America’s Cup (Finals) in 2017 in Bermuda.

Featuring all of the America’s Cup teams racing in foiling, one-design AC45 catamarans, the circuit is an early opportunity to put points on the board that carry forward into the next stage of the competition.

Overall ranking position in the series determines the starting points score of the teams in the America's Cup Qualifiers in 2017.

Three events were hosted in 2015 worldwide and a further 5 to 6 events expected in 2016.  In addition to the Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series Chicago, there will be events held in Oman (February 26-28), New York City (May 6-8), Portsmouth (July 22-24), and Toulon (September 16-18).
