I don't know about you, but I've seen hardly any news coverage about this event at all, and I had to do a bit of digging to find out this information. Firstly, not being particularly interested in sailing, I had just written this off as some other regatta where people sail around in circles while people watch them and drink champagne and wear very expensive things.
It seem's like my initial thoughts were probably not too far off the mark, but it was with some interest that I learned that, in the sailing world, this is like the F1 of events. It seems boat people are pretty geeked about about this thing happening this weekend, and on the back of this excitement I thought I'd do some research.
The event is being held offshore from the Al Mouj golf club, and there is a public viewing area (as well as the super fancy Club AC, where I suspect the people who wear very expensive things will be).
As it turns out, there is an event village complete with a kids zone, food court and various other bits and pieces, and it might actually be quite fun to go and check it out with the family (anything to occupy my 3 year old for an hour or two).
Basically the races are between 2 & 3:30pm on both days, and you can watch the coverage (apparently) on Oman TV and also online here: https://www.americascup.com/en/live-now.html
Clara, at Ocean Blue Oman, is offering seats on the lovely Sy Azurra to watch the races at sea for RO 45 per person. If you're interested in that, get in touch with her through their facebook page.
