ACT 4, HAMBURG, GERMANY RIVER ELBE 28 JULY Protected content 2016 Racecourse size: Protected content 300 metres
Race Village opens: 29 July
Where is it happening?
Set on the River Elbe in the HafenCity area, which is undergoing a huge regeneration project. Strong tides, shifty winds and passing traffic will give the sailors plenty to think about.
Where is the best place to watch?
HafenCity and the Elbe Philharmonic Hall form the spectacular backdrop for the GC32s to battle it out on the water, with Olympic heroes, America’s Cup winners and Round the World sailing legends going head-to-head within touching distance of the shore.
Anything else we should know?
Last year Hamburg presented rolling thunderstorms, crashes and even a capsize which kept the crew focused every second of the Act.
