The 36th America’s Cup — Auckland 2021

A Storied Sailing Event Returns

The sailing world’s premier competitive event — and the oldest trophy in international sport — returns to New Zealand for the first time in more than two decades in 2021, and Auckland is once again at the centre of all the action!

Longtime yachting enthusiasts will surely recall the massive excitement over the 2000 America’s Cup Auckland race, as well as the fact that our home team took the crown. The America’s Cup 2021 event is set to be no less thrilling, as the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron leverages their home-field advantage to defend the title against our challengers from March 6 – 21. Of course, the weeks and days leading up to the main event are also slated to be full of incredible goings-on that fans won’t want to miss out on (including the qualifying Prada Cup race, scheduled for 15th January – 22nd February).

Heritage Hotels welcomes Cup fans to Auckland. We offer luxury America’s Cup accommodations at not one, but two stellar local properties. Both Heritage Auckland and CityLife Auckland represent not only a spectacular stay with exceptional amenities and service, but also ideal locations right in the heart of it all — just steps from the harbour and America’s Cup Village.

We’re looking forward to being your hosts for the Cup’s triumphant return. Join us and watch the team sail to another victory! Don’t miss out — book your stay today!
