Guide Preliminary Regatta of America's Cup 2024 Barcelona 

(formerly called Prada Cup)

The Preliminary Regatta is a sailing competition held to determine the challenger who will race against the defender in the America's Cup. The America's Cup is one of the oldest and most prestigious trophies in international sports, and it's contested in a series of match races between two sailing yachts. The winner of the America's Cup becomes the defender and is responsible for organizing the next edition of the competition.

The Preliminary Regatta serves as the selection series for the challenger who will go on to compete against the current holder of the America's Cup. The Preliminary Regatta is also known as the Challenger Selection Series. The format of the Preliminary Regatta can vary depending on the edition, but it typically involves multiple challenger teams competing in a series of races.

The team that performs the best in the Preliminary Regatta earns the right to challenge the defender in the America's Cup match. The America's Cup is known for its high-tech and high-performance sailing yachts, and the competition attracts top sailors and designers from around the world.

The Preliminary Regatta adds an additional layer of excitement to the overall event by determining which challenger will have the opportunity to compete for the prestigious America's Cup.
