Getting ready for America's Cup greatness
Auckland is getting ready to host the 36th America’s Cup in 2021.
We’ll be showcasing Auckland as a world-class city, by building the stage for this exciting event. Our goal is to create an attractive, welcoming waterfront destination Auckland and visitors will love, that lasts well beyond a single sporting event.
To prepare our waterfront to host the Cup, several marine and land-based infrastructure works need to take place.
There are four key areas of development:
1. Halsey Wharf – home of Emirates Team New Zealand (syndicate Base A) and superyacht berths
2. Hobson Wharf – home of Cup challengers, Luna Rosa (syndicate Base B)
3. Wynyard Wharf/Point – home of five additional syndicates (syndicate Bases C to G)
4. Wynyard Basin - creating a calm environment for boats to launch through breakwaters and dredging
