If you’re a sailing enthusiast or just looking for something fun to do while in Italy this spring, take note that the America’s Cup World Series will take place in Naples this spring. The series, which runs April 16 to 21, 2013, will be the only America’s Cup event in Europe this year. Some 500,000 spectactors turned out for a similar event in Naples last year.
According to the America’s Cup site, “The America’s Cup World Series features up to 11 of the top sailing teams in the world, racing on cutting-edge, wingsail catamarans that demand the best from the crews. The competition takes place extremely close to shore, on short, confined racecourses, making for dramatic race action for spectators and sailors alike.”
