America’s Cup is coming - and it’s more accessible than ever 


We’re counting down the days to the opening event of the America’s Cup World Series on 17th December. We’re blown away with the team from Auckland Tourism who are going above and beyond to ensure all people are able to access the America’s Cup Village, key viewing locations, and all the info on their website, including accessibility information for visitors, and also to help businesses to ensure they are inclusive and welcoming as possible.

See you in 2021!
