America's Cup

Sailing

Sat 23 JulSun 24 Jul 2016

The America's Cup World Series, presented by Louis Vuitton, is a sailing competition as part of the 2017 America's Cup. The Portsmouth event takes place on 23-24 July.

The weather is an important aspect for outdoor sports, particularly in sailing. Wind direction, wind speed, thunderstorms and the state of the sea are a selection of aspects of the weather that are important for sailors, organisers and safety crews to keep up to date with. This is important so that they can know what to expect in races and prepare for equipment to be pushed to the limits.
