Teams that wish to enter the 37th America’s Cup must accept the Protocol as a condition to entry, and both parties have confirmed that it will be a multi-challenger event and not just a one-on-one event as has been speculated. The protocol, which is a detailed document illustrating the rules and parameters for the 37th America’s Cup, is being created by the defender of the America’s Cup and the challenger of record.

When the Royal Yacht Squadron Racing and INEOS TEAM UK were announced as the Challenger of Record, it was confirmed that the AC75 class of boat – 75ft foiling monohulls – would remain as the class of yacht used for the next two America’s Cup cycles. The AC40 is a super-fast, scaled down version of the AC75 and at times, it will be able to reach similar speeds to its sister boat.

“In fact, universally it is seen as something that will only benefit everyone in the sport of sailing and was illustrated in the 20 entries, we received to our mixed crew youth AC that was initially planned for 2021, prior to COVID-19.” Now, a new class of boat – an AC40 foiling monohull – will be added to help accelerate participation in the America’s Cup from female and youth foiling sailors.
