The New York Yacht Club American Magic, the U.S. sailing team challenging for the 36th America's Cup has announced an initial roster of 17 sailors who will train and compete with the team.

The accomplished group includes nine Americans and sailors from four other nations. The 36th America's Cup will take place in March 2021 off Auckland, New Zealand.

The AC75 class, a new type of 75-foot hydro-foiling boat designed specifically for the next edition of the America's Cup, the world's oldest international sporting event, is expected to race with a crew of 11 sailors.

"A major consequence of the decision to return the regatta to cutting-edge mono-hulled boats of this size is that America's Cup racing has been refocused on sailing skills and teamwork," said Hutchinson, a 14-time world champion and veteran of four Cup campaigns. "It will take a high level of performance from everyone onboard to get these boats around the racecourse."
