All six of the America's Cup teams are gearing up ahead of this weekend's racing

America’s Cup action continues this week, as the fleet descends upon Gothenburg in Sweden for the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series, with racing from August 29-30.

“The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series Gothenburg is an opportunity for the teams to put more points on the board that will count towards the penultimate racing in Bermuda in 2017,” said America’s Cup Event Authority CEO Russell Coutts.

“In the first event last month in Portsmouth, Ben Ainslie was clearly better than the rest and deserved to win. Peter Burling was also very impressive in his first start for Emirates Team New Zealand,” continued Coutts. “However, I’m sure the others will be looking to improve, none more so than Artemis which has a boat stacked with Olympic champions. They definitely have the talent and they will certainly want to put on a better performance in front of their home crowd in Gothenburg.”

The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series leaderboard is as follows:
Land Rover BAR ​​​- 19 points
Emirates Team New Zealand ​- 18
Groupama Team France​​ – 13
