City: Trapani, Italy
Trapani has been the venue for the Trapani Louis Vuitton Acts 8 & 9. The back-to-back events, beginning late in September 2005 and featuring Match and Fleet Racing concluded the racing season for the America’s Cup. Four other Louis Vuitton Acts were in Valencia, Spain and Malmö-Skåne, in Sweden. As with other venues used for the 32nd America’s Cup, Trapani is able to accommodate the fleet close to the race course, provide reliable sailing conditions, and enable the public to get close to the action, both ashore and afloat. Trapani’s race courses have the added attraction of the beautiful Egadi Islands as a stunning backdrop.
