Publication of the AC75 Class Rule and AC Technical Regulations
These documents will govern the technical aspects of the 37th America’s Cup, and define the specific parameters to which every competing AC75 yacht must be built. The development of these rules has been a collaboration between the design teams of Emirates Team New Zealand and INEOS Britannia, the two teams representing the Defender and Challenger of Record for the event.
A draft of both documents was first released in November 2021, and since then the rule writers have been working through several rounds of feedback received from all challengers that have entered the Cup. Today’s publication marks the official release of the rules, effectively starting the clock for the design race that will end on the water when the competitors’ AC75s face each other in the Challenger Selection Series and ultimately the America’s Cup Match.
