America’s Cup World Series will be the first opportunity for the teams to go head-to-head in official races, having squared off several times in practice duels in recent weeks.

The first three days follow a double round-robin format, with four races each day. Each team will face their three opponents on two occasions.

The top-ranked team from the round-robin will then face the fourth-best team in one semifinal, with the second-and third-place teams squaring off in the other.

The winners of each semifinal will face off in the Christmas Cup decider, while the two losers will race in a playoff for third.

For Team New Zealand, it is their only chance to take on the three prospective challengers in official races before America’s Cup match next March.

Luna Rossa, American Magic and INEOS Team UK will then battle it out in the Prada Cup starting in January, which will determine who will compete against the defender Team NZ in America’s Cup match.

Team New Zealand will head into the World Series as favourites, with their second AC75 Te Rehutai impressing early.

They have also shown early superiority in practice races against Luna Rossa in recent weeks.

But American Magic also showed they are a force, with Dean Barker leading the US syndicate to a practice race win over the Kiwis in the last race of the day on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, INEOS Team UK are still somewhat of an unknown, with the team not completing a trial race until Tuesday against the Americans.
