With just days to go until the start of the 35th America's Cup, the team have launched a limited-edition supporter's wristband; the 'Band of Britain' so Britain can get behind the biggest challenge in British sport.

Bermuda ​is the h​ome of t​he 35th ​America'​s Cup, p​resented​ by Loui​s Vuitto​n

Bermuda, with its rich sailing heritage, is the home of the 35th America's Cup, presented by Louis Vuitton. Next week, the best sailors in the world will convene for the world's most prestigious sailing event on the stunning backdrop of the Great Sound, Bermuda's natural amphitheatre.

Get lost in Bermuda's playground, where the only mystery is why you'd ever want to be found. A quirky mix of colonial heritage and island soul, the island is famed for its stunning pink sand beaches, crystal clear blue water, world class golf courses and UNESCO World Heritage sites. Bermuda has become a haven for travellers seeking a more adventurous break, with its temperate climate year-round, healthy outdoors lifestyle and diverse range of activities.

But it's sailing that Bermuda is most famous for and getting out on the water is a fundamental part of Bermudian life. From experiencing the reefs and shipwrecks of the ocean to exploring the bays, harbours and blue-water grottos by boat, kayak, jet ski or a wide range of other water sports.

Only a seven hour direct flight from London Gatwick. Get in on the mystery.
