Setting Our Sails to Bermuda


The crystal blue waters, friendly locals, recent renovations and racing drama have us enthralled with this year's America's Cup and wishing we were there under the blue skies of Bermuda. With festivities well underway in the Great Sound, Bermuda is buzzing with excitement for this year's 35th annual America's Cup. And for good reason!

Picture this: relaxing on a luxurious yacht, watching the most prestigious sailing event while sipping champagne. Sounds ideal, right? In Bermuda, it is possible! Experiencing the thrill of the race for the Auld Mug in the spectator zone of the race-course while receiving play-by-play analysis from your skipper (who knows all the latest news thanks to the morning briefings), sounds like a dream to us!

Get sea sick? Experiencing the electricity of the race from the island is nothing to scoff at. Especially if you are staying at the official America's Cup hotel, the Fairmont's Hamilton Princess. A recent $100 million renovation has created endless possibilities to experience the 35th America’s Cup at this pink palace. From a private balcony overlooking the harbor to a full-service marina, or a 2,000 sq. foot outdoor terrace you can experience the race any way you choose. Think you might need a break from the racing festivities? Spend your down time touring the extensive art collection (Banksy, Koons, and Damien Hirst under one roof!), relaxing at Exhale, shopping at the the official America’s Cup store and dining at Chef Marcus Samuelsson's new restaurant, Marcus.

Watching from land or water, one this is certain: the 35th America’s Cup will be an unforgettable experience.  

Happy watching!
