Cascais, Portugal, near Lisbon, was the site of the first America's Cup World Series regatta.  Cascais was a shortlisted city to host the 2007 America's Cup Match, and at one time thought to be the favorite.  For links to daily coverage and results: See CupInfo's ACWS Cascais page

April 2012

 

In their first ACWS regatta, a big win in Race 7 helped Luna Rossa Piranha climb to the top of the Fleet Race standings and take home the Naples Fleet Race Championship.  Despite rain a huge crowd roared their approval after the Italian boat crossed the finish line in Naples.  Artemis Racing redeemed a frustrating start to the week with wins over two Luna Rossa teams to clinch the Match Race Championship.
