Public spectator boat tickets to view the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series racing in Bermuda on October 17-18th are now on sale at www.islandtourcentre.com

America’s Cup Event Authority (ACEA) has partnered with Island Tour Centre to offer members of the public a front row view to the AC45 foiling catamarans as they race over Bermuda’s waters for the first time next month.

The ACEA has also arranged for ferries that will take 530 school children out to the watch the racing free of charge.

All six America’s Cup teams will be on Island taking part in the competition that allows them to accumulate points for later stages of the America’s Cup. Two official races are scheduled to take place each day between 2pm and 4pm on October 17 and 18.

It is expected that the races will be held in the Great Sound with the second race of each day scheduled to finish in front of Pier 6 on Front Street. The exact orientation and dimension of the Great Sound race course will be determined by the sailing conditions on the day.

Official spectator boat tickets can be purchased from the Island Tour Centre and start at $75 per day for a three-hour cruise, from 1pm to 4pm, to view both races each day. There are multiple boat options for spectators to choose from. Reduced rates for children 12 and under are also available.

“The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series is a great opportunity for locals and tourists alike to watch the races on the water and we are pleased to be able to offer excellent spectator packages,” says Ken Dallas of Island Tour Centre. “We look forward to welcoming members of the public who want to watch the races on the water but don’t have access to a boat.”

Spectator boats include Calico Jacks, The Bermudian, Reef Explorer, Looking Glass and more.

“Island Tour Centre has a fantastic fleet and these official spectator boats will act as stake boats, marking the boundaries of the actual race course, so it’s as close as you can get to the action,” says Sam Hollis, COO, ACEA. “We encourage members of the public to book a spot with Island Tour Centre for front row viewing of the best sailors in the world competing in America's Cup racing in Bermuda for the first time.”
