The 37th America’s Cup will have separate regattas for Women’s and Youth sailors.

The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron along with Team New Zealand and the Challenger of Record, Team UK, announced the new move.

The women and youth will race an AC40 boat. This is a scaled down version of the AC75 which was used in Auckland earlier this year and will be used in the next two events.

The intention is for the new class, which has four crew, to grow participation in the America’s Cup.

The yacht clubs of competing AC teams must enter both the Women’s and Youth events, however entries will also be open to other countries and yacht clubs.

The host venue for the next America’s Cup is to be named next week.
