Dear America's Cup Fans!, 

Thanks for your patience while all the details of our upcoming trip were worked out with event organizers, Coast Guard etc. Please read the

following carefully.


Many of you purchased spots on the boat for multiple people--we are not issuing formal physical tickets --we will have multiple stations for check-in at boarding so we need you to Send us the names of the people attending--please email the YRA office at and please copy me,

The boat location is Chelsea Piers on the West Side of Manhattan, Pier 60, North Side. Plenty of parking in the area BUT there are a lot of people doing the same thing we are and   leaving from the same location so please budget your time accordingly if driving and parking.
