Don’t worry though, you won’t hear Kiss 67 times or Faith on repeat as your DJs for the night, The Andro3 (Phil, Nathan and Milton), will be flexing all of their DJ muscles.  Each has their own styley and promise to keep it going.  Pick an artist and a tune for the lip-sync challenge in drag and there will be more surprises in store.

Tickets are $10 before midnight and $15 after.

The action accelerates in conjunction with the America’s Cup itself, with Red Bull Youth America’s Cup Pool A and B Qualifiers scheduled for Monday to Friday, June 12th to 16th (excluding Wednesday the 14th), followed by the Finals on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 20th to 21st

The 12 teams in the regatta include TeamBDA, Bermuda’s entrant, who is affiliated with Oracle Team USA and the teams have been put into two groups for the training and qualifying rounds of the competition – Group A and Group B.

All racing will be held on Bermuda’s Great Sound in foiling AC45s, the same boats sailed by the America’s Cup teams in the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series events.

Boasting a range of entertainment including ‘dock-out’ shows and sailor signing sessions, you can get up close to the action within the custom-built nine-acre America’s Cup Village.

In addition to the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup events, there will also be two offshore events held over these dates.

Firstly, before the America’s Cup Match begins, there will be a chance for superyachts to get in on the thrill of racing in Bermuda with the America’s Cup Superyacht Regatta, which forms part of the overall America’s Cup Superyacht Program.  Boat International Media (BIM) has been appointed by the America’s Cup Event Authority to organise the America’s Cup Superyacht Regatta, which is being delivered in conjunction with the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club (RBYC).  This will be from Tuesday to Thursday, June 13th to 15th and racing will take place North, East and South of the eastern portion of Bermuda.  Please note that the America’s Cup Village will not be specifically open for this event since it is offshore.  The Village will only be open on days which cross over with the Red Bull events, so will be closed on Wednesday, June 14th.  More details can be found at http://Superyachts.AmericasCup.com.

Also, the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda will be graced by the J Class fleet at the America’s Cup J Class Regatta on Friday, Monday and Tuesday, June 16th, 19th and 20th.  These majestic titans of sail competed for the Cup during the 1930s and are perhaps still some of the most famous yachts afloat. Only ten J Class yachts were ever built, of which three originals survive today, including Shamrock V and Endeavour which raced for the America’s Cup in 1930 and 1934 respectively.  Eight J Class yachts are expected in Bermuda – including Shamrock V – with seven anticipated to compete in the J Class regatta. This will be the first time in history that seven J Class yachts have raced against each other.  Showcasing the heritage and tradition of the America’s Cup, the fleet will be berthed at the Hamilton Princess Marina.  The yachts will be at the heart of the AC35 action with their own exclusive regatta. Due to the size and draft of the yachts, J Class racing will take place in Murray’s Anchorage on the Bermuda north shore (an additional exhibition flyby will take place on the Great Sound, in front of the America’s Cup Race Village). J Class fleet racing is one of the most spectacular sights on the world sailing circuit.  More details can be found at www.AmericasCup.com/en/ac35-jclass.html.

 

 

The grand finale will be the America’s Cup Match presented by Louis Vuitton, starting on Saturday, June 17th.

The winner of the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs will be going up against the Defender, Oracle Team USA.

If the team that wins the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Qualifiers is also in the America’s Cup Match presented by Louis Vuitton, they will start with a one point advantage. The first team to seven will win the America’s Cup!

The America’s Cup Match will be from Saturday and Sunday, June 17th and 18th, then from Saturday to Tuesday, June 24th to 27th.

Boasting a range of entertainment including ‘dock-out’ shows and sailor signing sessions, you can get up close to the action within the custom-built nine-acre America’s Cup Village.
