AC40

2021 saw the introduction of the multipurpose One Design AC40 class which America's Cup teams will be able to convert and use for testing, component development and Match Race training. The class will then be converted back to the measured One Design AC40 class for use in the new America’s Cup Women’s Regatta and America’s Cup Youth events. These events have been developed to create new accelerated inclusive pathways into the America’s Cup for the growing global talent pool of female and youth sailors.
