For those who are following America’s Cup sailing events, they can look forward to seeing sporadic events lining up towards the finale of this mega tournament by the end of the year. Currently the tournament has moved to Portsmouth. For those who are sailing enthusiasts and have followed the evolution of the different sailing tournaments, they might feel that the America’s Cup World Series seems to be started a little while ago when the first race of this epic tournament had been raced first in Portsmouth in UK. This year the boats that are part of the tournament are moving to the same port around this time for the next lap of the tournament.
There would be a press conference held where certain points would be discussed such as how the skippers would like the future of the tournament to be more defined and certain so that sponsorship issues and valuation can be more determined for this event. The Kiwi team stated that if they won the Cup they would want to return to mono hulls and want that to be a definite rule for the tournament. The press conference saw some happy banter between the skippers and that is heartening to follow for the fans that are eagerly following the different phases of the tournament.
