Corona News - the America's Cup calendar mixed-up

 Corona News - the America's Cup calendar mixed-up With the cancellation of the two European AC World Series Events in Cagliari ITA and Portsmouth GBR, the already reduced program of the America's Cup has been even further limited. Only at the end of 2020, the four teams will meet for the first time at the Auckland World Series, too late to make any changes in the boat designs after a direct comparison with opponents on the water. In January 2021, the Prada Cup, the Challenger Series to determine the team to face the Cup defender 'Team New Zealand' for the Cup fight in early March 2021, will already begin. ----- For the moment, the Kiwis are the most affected by this situation as their AC75 is on a cargo ship to Europe. However, their smaller training boat will allow continuing the training on a high level. As far as the design of the allowed second boat is concerned, all teams are in a similar situation, as no live race tests have been possible.
