America’s Cup – March Recap

By America’s Cup Media

As the business end of the Louis Vuitton 37th America’s Cup nears, all the teams have spent the month of March getting ready for the arrival and final preparations of their new AC75 yachts. These yachts will be the pinnacle of design, the result of thousands of man hours and computer simulations all to produce the apex and defining generation of America’s Cup foiling craft.

Alongside the excitement building around the AC75s, the AC40s have been used extensively for training over March with most teams switching in their Youth & Women sailors to get vital onboard practice time in the world’s most exciting new foiling class.

And in March, it was announced that the Official Game of the Louis Vuitton 37th America’s Cup will be launched on the 9th April 2024 on the Twitch platform. The new E-Series will bring gamers together around the world to ‘unleash a new era of competitive gaming.’
