The competitors and organizers of the 2017 America's Cup are planning to implement a series of rule changes to dramatically reduce team operational costs, primarily by racing in a smaller boat.
Located only 17 kilometres from the centre of Copenhagen and only 20 minutes by car from Copenhagen Airport, Vallensbæk Harbour is easily reached whether your arrive by plane, train, bus, or car.
The race area is under normal circumstances less than 20 minutes of sailing time from the harbour.
The average wind for the summer months is West-Southwest, with an average strength of 5-6 m/s (10-12 knots).
The race area is not under any tidal influences.
