Organisers have unveiled the Bermuda arena as Wednesday marked 100 days to the start of the finals of the elite sailing competition – May 26.

The race village where spectators will watch all of the action is located in the Royal Naval Dockyard on the western-most end of the island, e the prime viewing location for the racing taking place on Bermuda’s Great Sound.

America’s Cup boss, Sir Russell Coutts, the most successful sailor in the contest’s history, said: ‘One hundred days to go until the start of the 35th America’s Cup is a major milestone, one that really brings home just how close we all are to the start of what I am sure is going to be the greatest America’s Cup yet.’
