List of IACC regattas

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of regattas that involve IACC yachts. International America's Cup Class (IACC) yachts were designed for the America's Cup, with specifications released in 1989 after the debacle of the 1988 America's Cup. Since then they have been used for every America's Cup (except the 2010 America's Cup) as well as a series of other events, such as the IACC Worlds and the Louis Vuitton regattas. The IACC class was not used during the 2010 America's Cup due to a disagreement between defender Alinghi and the challenger of record BMW Oracle. A deed of gift match was instead setup that favored newly designed multihulls, which was won by the trimaran design of BMW Oracle. The IACC class looks set to be finally revised after more than twenty years, just before the next America's Cup, so that the yachts would bring out the best of the crew's sailing abilities over technology. Equalized IACC class yachts are still being match raced to this day and in the near future, through the Louis Vuitton Trophy.

Currently 100 sail numbers have been issued to IACC yachts.
