A heartfelt thank you to everyone in Bermuda who has done their part so far to making Bermuda’s America’s Cup experience incredible for all.

The 16 committees with about 150 people serving them have been instrumental in ensuring that Bermuda will measure up and indeed exceed expectations for hosting the largest international sporting experience ever seen on our shores.

Success in planning and executing a project of this magnitude, from the high level concept to the finest details could only have been possible with the dedication and effort of all involved.

This is true of thousands of people in Bermuda, much more than the core group who think, sleep and breathe America’s Cup every day.

We thank the Bermuda’s wider community of suppliers, tradespeople, truck drivers, crane operators, government workers, food vendors and caterers, retailers, America’s Cup licensees, taxi drivers, teachers, media personnel and every person whose work, school or life contributes to the America’s Cup experience. Whether you’re a part of constructing infrastructure for the event to take place or the daily operations that keeps the teams and support staff up and running, we appreciate you and we look forward to 2017 — Bermuda’s year of the America’s Cup.

From America’s Cup Bermuda we wish a very happy and safe Christmas to you, your friends and family.

— Mike Winfield, CEO
