| All is revealed on a busy unveiling day at Port America's Cup
Sunday was unveiling day at Port America’s Cup, the morning when all 12 teams had to drop the protective skirts that had been guarding the underbodies of their race boats. A traditional Valencian ‘mascleta’ of fireworks opened the countdown to unveiling at 09:00. Within half an hour, all the team bases were open to media and other team members.
With 19 boats unveiling at once, and the updated Port America’s Cup ready to welcome visitors, the day took on a tone of celebration as the public were invited to the team bases from 11:30, where sailors and designers from other teams could be seen taking the measure of the competition. By 16:00, over 40 000 people had passed through the doors of Port America’s Cup.
