HOW TO FOLLOW THE 35TH AMERICA'S CUP

The 35th America’s Cup begins on the 26th May on the Great Sound in Bermuda. We’ve put together some information on how you can watch Ben Ainslie and Land Rover BAR on their quest to bring the Cup home to Britain.

Land Rover BAR inside access

Land Rover BAR will have the original AC live blogger, Mark Chisnell doing the live blog of the racing on their website.

And will provide further behind-the-scenes access on their app.

TV

BT Sport are the live host broadcaster for the UK and Ireland, with the BBC doing the highlights programmes – all the broadcast times can be found below.

Live site

If you are in Portsmouth – the home of Land Rover BAR – from the 26th to the 29th May then Gunwharf Quays will have a big screen, open to all with live racing and replays.

In Bermuda

The race village will be the place to soak up the action, sitting on the Great Sound with grandstand seating, views of the race course and finish line. Big screens will keep the fans in touch with all the action on the water, there will be plenty to eat and drink, Cup team kit to buy, opportunities to meet the sailors and of course the dock out shows.

The organisers of the America's Cup World Series UK have put together hospitality packages for supporters of the British team and the America's Cup to come to Bremuda for the ultimate experience, including spectator boats. Book now.
