Louis Vuitton America'sCup WorldSeries Brings Its Special Style

Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series

The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series makes nine stops. There are two in the United States, one last month on the Hudson River in New York and the other this past weekend on Lake Michigan in Chicago. All six teams, Great Britain, USA, Japan, Sweden, New Zealand and France, were given an opportunity to host these lead-in regattas in their respective home countries.

On the fresh waters of Lake Michigan for the first time, the Louis Vuitton America's Cup event in Chicago provided spectacular racing.
After an intense weekend, the action of the Chicago races has come to an end. In front of sold out grandstands, the six America’s Cup teams fought fiercely, worthy of the yachting worlds most celebrated trophy.

In the more than 160 years of America’s Cup history, the Chicago venue was the first time it was raced in fresh water. On Friday, the practice day, two boats (Emirates Team New Zealand and Oracle Team USA) capsized but claimed no damage to the electronics on board thanks no salt in the water.

The best-three-out-of-five match race shootout in the 2016 San Francisco Perpetual Challenge Cup was won by Long Beach Yacht Club’s Shane Young last Saturday against San Francisco Yacht Club’s Shawn Bennett. With the win, LBYC once again has the privilege of holding on to the 121-year-old San Francisco Perpetual Challenge Trophy. Young’s teammates were Dustin Durant, Mike Lowe, Ben Wheatley, Ian Paice and John Busch.
