He said in a press release: “I had my first taste of the America’s Cup in Chicago in June 2016 at the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series event. I went out on the water while they were racing and nothing prepares you for just how fast, and how cool, those boats are.
“Now I’m coming to Bermuda where I’ll have the chance to be part of the America’s Cup show and I cannot wait! If you haven’t already, book your tickets now and I’ll see you in the America’s Cup Village.”
All tickets that gain entry into the America’s Cup Village will give access to Wyclef Jean’s performance and the full day of racing and America’s Cup Village experiences on offer, according to a press release from event organisers.
