The countdown has commenced for what promises to be one of the most exciting, innovative and ultimately consequential series of events of the 37th America’s Cup. The Notice of Race for the 2024 Women’s America’s Cup and Youth America’s Cup has been posted and firm plans can now be laid by prospective teams from around the world to compete in the glorious surrounds of Barcelona in 2024.

The rapidly re-vamping Port Olímpic, a short and pleasant stroll down the palm-lined promenade that stretches the length of Barcelona’s waterfront, is set to be the stunning new base for the future stars of the America’s Cup to begin their journey to winning the Holy Grail of world yachting. With wide-open boulevards, stunning architecture – and in the shadow of the famous Golden Fish ‘El Peix’ Frank Gehry sculpture that welcomes visitors at its entrance – the Port Olímpic ticks every box in terms of sustainability and accessibility, with promise of being a lively, youthful, vibrant heart of activity with direct access to the racecourse just yards off the beach.

The Women’s and Youth teams lucky enough to be selected will experience a regatta simply like no other placing them in the epicentre of the America’s Cup crucible of competition. Picture the scene as thousands watch from the beach and galleries dotted along the shoreline, millions more catching the free-to-air broadcast around the globe and helicopters circle above capturing the white-hot intensity of sailing in one of its purest forms, at its finest. This is the big time for sure.
