Australian Women’s Challenge 2024

29 March 2023
Aussies return to America’s Cup scene

The words ‘America’s Cup’ have barely been uttered in Australia since March 5, 1995, when One Australia snapped in two and sailed to the seabed off California. But an all-women’s crew spearheaded by Olivia Price and Nina Curtis is looking to restore national pride in 2024.

The Australian Women’s Challenge syndicate will vie for the first Women’s America’s Cup competition aboard AC40 foiling yachts, developed by Team New Zealand. Races will be broadcast globally as part of the overall 37th America’s Cup telecast.

Australia is a world leader in international foiler sailing and the campaign will be transformational for women’s sailing domestically as the syndicate recruits leading female sailors. There is genuine confidence that the nation has what it takes to lift the inaugural trophy. “We have the skills, the ambition, resources and the talent to win for Australia in the Barcelona 2024 Women’s America’s Cup,” Olivia says. Nina adds: “This is a unique opportunity for Australia to finally fly our flag in the world’s oldest sporting competition, the America’s Cup. We’re building more than a campaign – we’re building a legacy.”
