Bermuda Tourism Authority weighs feasibility of sports related tourism events

Bermuda Tourism AuthorityThe Bermuda Tourism Authority [BTA] is looking at the feasibility of many other sports-related events in the wake of America’s Cup. The BTA said that, “Bermuda’s successful delivery of the 35th America’s Cup has elevated the destination to a strong position for attracting future sports tourism events and has already helped officials land new events for the island”.

 
A spokesperson of the BTA said, “Since 2016, nine America’s Cup legacy events – some of them recurring – have been added to Bermuda’s sports tourism calendar.”

 
These events coming to the island were positively influenced by the 35th America’s Cup and the 2015 Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series in Bermuda:

 
M 32 Winter Series [Jan-Mar 2016]
RC 44 Regatta [Mar 2016]
Viper 640 Championship [Nov 2016]
Amlin Moth Regatta [Dec 2016]
Antigua Bermuda Race [May 2017]
ITU World Triathlon Series [Apr 2018, 2019, 2020]
Oyster Regatta Bermuda [May 2018]
Moth World Championship [Jun 2018]
Atlantic Anniversary Regatta [Jun 2018]“

 
“Meantime, in the wake of America’s Cup, the Bermuda Tourism Authority is actively vetting the feasibility of many other sports-related events, including future Superyacht and J Class Regattas similar to the America’s Cup-related events that took place in Bermuda in June”, the spokesperson said. He added, “The 2017 Superyacht Regatta attracted about twice the number of entrants that raced in San Francisco during the 34th America’s Cup, while the convergence of eight J Class boats in Bermuda was the largest gathering in history – even more than raced at any one time in the 1930s and 1940s when the majestic sailing vessels competed for the America’s Cup.”
