Final Cup Two Years Away
With its unusual schedule, the America’s Cup can be hard to follow. So here is a rundown of how to see the competition in mid-October.
1 Hamilton waterfront – in downtown Hamilton, Bermuda along Front Street. Expect live viewing to be limited here because the “race box” is three miles out in Great Sound. Large screen TVs will show on-the-water action live. Event details here.
2 On a boat – in designated spectator areas around the race course. Register your own boat or buy tickets for a tour boat. Prices range from $75-110 for single day tickets. Register at Island Tour Center here.
3 TV ZFB Bermuda – Watch locally in Bermuda. Go to Bermuda Broadcasting for television information.
4 iPhone & Android Apps – Download apps here. Availability based on the country you are located in. I signed up for the app and pre-purchased the event for $7.99 through the iTunes App Store.
5 Radio – listen live at Bermuda Broadcasting Radio.
