With just over a week to go until the action is due to kick off for the 33rd America’s Cup, the tension is mounting in Valencia. In the January issue of Yachting World we published the first of a two part preview to the Cup. Here you can download a pdf of part 1 where we take a close look at these two incredible monster multihulls.

HOW TO GET TO AMERICA’S CUP VENUE
To Valencia by Air:
The easiest way is to fly to Valencia and then take a taxi. Approx cost of taxi to harbour, €20
Seewww.valenciaport.com for more information.
Unfortunately, at this time of year there are fewer direct flights to Valencia than during the summer season. Therefore an alternative route is to fly to Alicante and either take the train or hire a car. Driving takes approx 2 hours and car rental is cheap.
To harbour from Valencia train station:
A taxi from the train station is about a 20-minute ride.
Heading to Valencia on the A7 toll motorway, connect to the V-15 or V-30 to the port, which is signposted.
