Cheer on the UK’s first America's Cup World Series races

Portsmouth, Hampshire

Watch Ben Ainslie’s America’s Cup team compete with some of the world’s top sailors in a series of exhilarating races across the Solent.

Portsmouth’s sporting events in July don’t get much bigger or more exciting than this.

From 23-26 July, the America’s Cup World Series races will take place in the city. This is the first time the event has visited the UK, forming part of the 35th America’s Cup programme.

Your journey will begin at Race Village, hosted on Southsea Common. Soak up music, entertainment and live footage of the races. Watch the seafront come alive with spectators and feel the buzz as the races begin.

The highlight will be watching Ben Ainslie’s UK team compete against some of the world’s top sailors in AC45s superyachts and 45ft foiling catamarans. Become part of the action as you cheer them on as they battle their way across the Solent.
