The America’s Cup Preliminary Regatta Jeddah – a sailing event taking place on the Saudi Red Sea coast this month – has partnered with Neom, the regional development taking shape in northwest Saudi Arabia.
The America’s Cup Preliminary Regatta Jeddah, presented by Neom, takes place from 29 November to 2 December, 2023 at Jeddah Yacht Club & Marina, marking the first event of its kind in the Kingdom.
The world’s leading sailors will race in foiling AC40 yachts with teams from six countries: New Zealand, the UK, Switzerland, Italy, the USA and France.
Organisers say the new event will inspire the next generation of Saudis to experience sailing, kite surfing and other watersports. It will also showcase professional sport to young Saudis and demonstrate to the world’s sailing community the spectacular waters of the Red Sea.
