Here’s a possible race course for the America’s Cup World Series in New York, in case of wind from the south east. Regardless of wind direction, AC Regatta Director Iain Murray will try to set the course so that the finish is near the Event Village at Brookfield Place. Almost any course layout will present challenges from the wind shadows of the lower Manhattan skyscrapers.
Stake boats (the orange rectangles) will be in place to delimit the racing area. Course Marshal boats (green, marked “CM”) will keep the spectator fleet outside the race area. Official VIP hospitality boats will be positioned in the red areas..
