Approximate Race Area for Louis Vuitton ACWS New York, 2016

The Principal Race Officer (PRO) will set the course race by race depending on wind conditions and other factors.  The best viewing locations will accordingly vary with the race course and wind directions.

The course will be generally oriented to align with the wind direction so that upwind and downwind legs are not biased to favor one tack over the other.  However, the course may be laid for either port or starboard tack at the Start or Finish.  Similarly, the Finish line may follow the rounding of either a windward or leeward mark, depending on the PRO's discretion. 

Viewing the Racing on the Water:
The race area will be patrolled by Coast Guard and Course Marshals to keep spectator traffic from interfering with the racing.

Other areas adjacent to the race course or exclusion zones may be accessed by the general public subject to special regulations and with registration.
