The PRADA America ’ s Cup World Series Auckland and the PRADA Christmas Race have seen the teams congregating in Auckland , New Zealand from the 17th to the 20th of December 2020. On the 17th of December at 3pm NZT two AC75s lined up for the very first race of this America ' s Cup cycle. For the first three days of the PRADA ACWS Auckland (17th-19th of December) there have been four races per day of Round Robin competitions when all of the four teams have raced each other twice.

The deal to stage the America ' s Cup in Auckland in 2021 includes tough penalties for Team New Zealand if fewer than four teams front up. At the same time, Auckland Council has released new imagery of how the city's waterfront will be transformed by the time the Cup regatta is staged in 2021. Some uncertainty remains around the public space being built on the water's edge between Princes Wharf and the Ferry terminal, with the timing of that work expected to be clarified by September.

New Zealand's quest for a historic America's Cup three-peat is likely to head overseas after an impasse in hosting rights negotiations.

On Wednesday, the NZ government's exclusive window to negotiate a deal for hosting the sailing regatta, due for 2025, shut without an agreement.

The winners of each event, in this case Team New Zealand from the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron (RNZYS), can choose where to hold their defence.

After winning the 2017 race, RNYZS struck a multi-million dollar deal with the New Zealand government and Auckland Council to host its defence in the city of sails.

After a virtual induction event in 2020, the ACHOF induction ceremony returned to a traditional gala dinner held at the RNZYS, and while this event had to be postponed from March 8th due to the Level 3 "lockdown" that postponed the start of the America ' s Cup , the fact that New Zealand is relatively COVID-free is what made this event possible.

But now, the RNZYS is eyeing a bigger payday than what the government is prepared to guarantee, and will entertain foreign suitors.

"It is disappointing," Economic Development Minister Stuart Nash said.

"We want the next America's Cup raced in New Zealand.

"Tens of thousands of diehard Kiwi fans who turned out to support the historic defence of the Cup in March want it raced in New Zealand.

"At the end of the day the America's Cup is a global commercial operation. It is an international business as much as a sporting contest.

"The team is now free to look to commercial sponsors, private supporters, or other avenues ... we wish the team all the best."

Taxpayer support to host the 2021 event in New Zealand has been reported to be about $NZ250 million ($A231m).

For his fifth America ' s Cup campaign Esquier joined Challenge France in Fremantle - skippered by Yves Pajot and his Marseille-based team. In a magnanimous gesture, Luna Rossa signed away their right of approval on any Protocol changes deferring instead to a Challenger democratic decision. Eight months later their generosity was rewarded by having the Challenger Committee go rogue and accept a Defender brokered deal that offered to switch to a smaller boat nine months after entries had closed.

The glamour and the tourism pull of each regatta led the government to believe hosting rights could be worth up to $NZ1 billion ($A926m) - though such benefits were nullified by COVID-19 border restrictions.

Mr Nash said the government's 2025 hosting offer involved "cash and in-kind support worth around $NZ99 million".

The NZ Herald has reported Team New Zealand wanted twice that figure.

Team New Zealand chief executive Grant Dalton said the refusal of NZ's bid came as "we must explore other opportunities to ensure we can put up another successful defence".

"We certainly want to explore holding a regatta in Auckland and along with discussing the venue for AC37 with other nations, would like to work through that opportunity also," he said.

Negotiations are a big issue in New Zealand, a proud sailing nation, with neither side wanting to appear for taking the event offshore.

Equally, the government is eager not to be spendthrifts with public money.

Team New Zealand are the two-time defending champions after beating Italian challengers Luna Rossa 7-3 in March.

No country outside the Unites States has won the coveted Cup, considered the pinnacle of sailing, more than twice.
