The 35th Americas Cup 2017 in Bermuda
It may come as no surprise, to the population of South America, that when the “Americas Cup” is talked about the “talk” is really about the “North Americas Cup” as South America has no involvement in the event. The beginings of the race goes back a long way in history when a wealthy Englishman and a wealthy American raced each other in the Solent, which is a stretch of water in the South of England.
Over the course of years that particular race, between two yachts, became known as “The America’s Cup” but, as often is the case, big business, then, got involved. To understand the set up, today, there are a number of races held over three years. These races are held under the name “The Louis Vitton Americas Cup World Series” and the final race “The Americas Cup” is still between two yachts, one of which is the holder and the other the challenger , the challenger being arrived at as the best from all the previous races over the three years. Accordingly, the 2017 Americas Cup race “qualifying” commenced in 2015. The contenders in the 35th Americas Cup are New Zealand, the USA, the UK, Sweden, Japan and France , with the USA Oracle being the holder.
Races between the contenders, being held over three years , the current series is held over 2015,2016 and 2017. The first round of races in 2015 were held in Portsmouth, England. then Gothenburg, Denmark and finally Hamilton Bermuda. In 2016 there are forecast to be between 4 and 6 races, noting that the sponsors will wish to squeeze as much cash out of the events as possible. The final set of races held in 2017 will see the Americas Cup 2017 run off in Hamilton, Bermuda
So what Interest is the Americas Cup to Colombia
Clearly, the Colombian Government, supported by its people, want Colombia to be held in esteem by the International community. This requires Colombia to welcome the Worlds tourists and the Worlds tourists wishing to visit Colombia.
What interest has the Americas Cup to Colombia is very good question, however, in answering the question, let us return to the goals set by the Colombian Government and, from an International point of view, two, in particular, which are very interesting in being able to bring about change. They are:-
a) Increase d use of the English language to facilitate tourism in Colombia
b) To make Cartagena des Indias a place for International water sports
MYHColombia.com is dedicated to bringing about change and for Colombia to reach the goals set by the Colombian Government the bringing of the Americas Cup into Colombian waters would be a big step in reaching those goals.
Tourism An opportunity to take advantage of turmoil in the East
Within recent years the West has seen the rise of the East as a destination for tourism. However, events in the Middle East have made Westerners rather more careful as to where they wish to spend their hard earned money on a vacation location. The tourist hot spots in the Far East, Middle East and North Africa have been hit by militant extremism. Accordingly, tourists are seeking a safer place to enjoy their travel and vacations. In recent years Colombia has shed the mantle of a country immersed in violence, thanks to the resistance of the people of Colombia , the Government of Colombia and those States who wish to see Colombia prosper and, through prosperity, change conditions in their own State. It is really a time for South America to promote itself as a place of relative safety in a dangerous and hostile World.
