The Regatta Island: a new floating stand to watch the regattas of the America's Cup in Venice from the front row
From 18 May 2012 to 20 May 2012
The America's Cup Word Series are one of the major 2012 events in Venice, a pairing of Venice and the sea with international acclaim that will give unforgettable moments to all the spectators coming to Venice to watch these exciting regattas.Besides the seats along the shores and the numerous private motor and sailing boats, there will be an exceptional location from where it will be possible to watch the regattas on the climax days of the America's Cup (Friday 18th, Saturday 18th and Sunday 20th May): the Regatta Island, a floating stand anchored in the centre of the racing field 2 right in the centre of St Marks Basin, between the Riva degli Schiavoni and the Isle of St Giorgio.
The Regatta Island will allow aficionados and spectators to watch from the water the competing and extremely fast catamarans, directly from the first row. Places available are limited, numbered and divided between stand seats and the spectacular Moet & Chandon terrace, with prices varying between 40 and 60 euros depending on the day and type of seat.
To access the floating stand there will be a water shuttle, included in the ticket, which will leave from the Cornoldi pier, adjacent to the ACTV Piet boarding station. The boarding time, from 12.30pm to 1.15 pm, will not wait for late boarders, as at 1.45pm no traffic will be allowed on the waters where regattas are taking place. The return trip is at around 4.30pm, after the finish of the America's Cup regattas.
There will be different services available on the Regatta Island, including a welcoming reception and assistance with seat allocation, spectators with mobility impairments, toilets, a bar and recycling bins to ensure the least impact on such an enchanting location as Venice.
