A good day out

As we countdown to the 35th America's Cup The Royal Gazette will bring you one fun fact a day about the boats, the sailors, the crew, or the history of this illustrious competition. There are now 20 days until the month-long sporting spectacle gets under way.

Tickets have been selling well for the 35th America's Cup, and for Bermuda residents $20 will get one adult and two children into the America's Cup Village.

A family of four can attend for just $4 more, getting to soak up the atmosphere of one of the greatest sporting events in the world.

There are a variety of different ticket packages available, with entry into the AC Village among the cheaper options. Fans in the village will be able to watch the races on a big screen, enjoy entertainment from local acts on the main stage, and entertain their children in the Kids Zone.

Other activities include poster signing sessions, a chance to meet the competitors and see them answer questions in the mixed media zone and also live entertainment on the main stage.

The village, on Cross Island in Dockyard, will open at 11.30am daily, except for May 26 when it will open at 3pm for the first day of racing from 5pm. The official opening ceremony start at 8.30pm and the village will close at 10.30pm.

The closing time of the America's Cup Village will vary throughout the event schedule, with times changing according to the race schedule.
