SAIL TEAM BCN – The Spanish AC Team will challenge for 37th America’s Cup Woman and Youth titles.

A new America’s Cup team has been created in Barcelona to represent the City, Region and Country to challenge for the Youth & Woman’s America’s Cup in 2024.


A collaboration between an experienced group of sailors and campaign managers together with the Real Club Náutico de Barcelona (RCNB) have received approval from America’s Cup Event Management Company (ACE) and Emirates Team New Zealand to be the Spanish challenger for the event in 2024.


Heading up the team will be legendary Catalan sailor Guillermo Altadill and experienced international team manager Stewart Hosford.



SAILTEAM BCN have a number of key objectives for the 37th America’s Cup

  • To create a fully formed team with campaign base in the Port of Barcelona.
  • To purchase and run two newly released AC40 race boats with a full America’s Cup team structure.
  • To recruit talented youth and female sailors from across Spain in an open, application based process to ensure transparent, open recruitment of athletes for both the Youth and Woman’s teams.
  • To race and train from Barcelona with the objective to win both the Youth and Woman’s America’s Cup in 2024.
  • To build a platform of talent and build pathways allowing the team and athletes to compete in future America’s Cup in all categories.

The team have already commissioned the design of a team base in Port Vell in Barcelona and are in discussions with a number of investors and sponsors to support the initiative.
