Prada Cup publishes race conditions
Painstakingly handcrafted by Florentine silversmiths, the Prada Cup is designed by renowned designer Marc Newson. And now the race conditions for winning it – the Challengers Selection Series – have been published.
The winner of the Prada Cup series (taking place January and February 2021 in Auckland) will challenge the defender, Emirates Team New Zealand, in the 36th America’s Cup (in March).
The Prada cup consists of four round robins of three races each, a seven-race semi-final, and a 13-race final between the two leading teams.
Each win scores one point. The challenger with the highest score at the end of the round robins will automatically access the Prada cup final. The remaining two teams will race again in the semi-final and the first to win four races will qualify for the final.
The first team to score seven points in the final will win the Prada Cup and will challenge for the America’s Cup.
