36th America's Cup

We're about two weeks away from New Zealand's formal Cup Protocol announcement, but a few things have just been revealed by Luna Rossa -- the Challenger of Record.

* The next Cup will race in monohulls

* A decision on use of foils or canting keels has yet to be made

* There will be team nationality rules

* The formal AC Protocol will be announced at the end of this month (September 2017)

Patrizio Bertelli confirms monohulls for next America Cup - La Stampa
Cheers!

The old 12 meter boats were the best!

I agree with Padre, and leaving aside technical considerations of speed, efficiency, and safety, the monohulls will be more aesthetically pleasing to my particular eye than the catamarans were.

they aim to go back to real sailing skills rather than more and more technology

To me the J boats were a thing of beauty. The lines on those boots were just right to me.

Put all competitors in identical "J" class boats build from modern materials but to 1930's specs.
No electronics, no computers, just pure sailing skills.
Ensure all team members are bonafide citizens of the country they are representing.
Then we will see who can really sail.
Ladies and gentleman, hoist you sails.
