This week-end, Toulon will host a unique and unprecedented event in France: The Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series. Three days of spectacular regattas await the Mediterranean city.

September 9th, 10th and 11th, for the first time ever, six teams will confront each other on the crystal clear waters of Mourillon Beach: American Defender Oracle Team USA (Trophy holder) and their challengers, Emirates Team New Zealand, Land Rover BAR, Artemis Racing, SoftBank Japan and Groupama Team France.

For this weekend’s races, Oracle Team USA has announced that Olympic gold medalist Tom Slingsby will take over as skipper, while Jimmy Spithill rehabs an injured elbow.
