The 36th America’s Cup Match Presented by Prada, in Auckland, March 2021, will feature the Defender, Emirates Team New Zealand sailing against the sole challenger to emerge from the proceeding Prada Cup challenger-elimination series. State-of-the-art, high-speed 75-foot foiling monohulls will be used for the first time in Cup competition, honoring the 170-year-old competition’s legacy of technology and design innovation in the ultimate arena of performance sailing prowess.

This will be the second time America’s Cup racing will be contested in the waters off Auckland. In the past, the racecourses were set on the Hauraki Gulf, but for this edition, the courses will be set closer to land for greater specating and boundary-style racing.
