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.

In Person

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.

Radio/TV/Apps

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.
