Following confirmation from Artemis Racing that it intends to continue, Regatta Director Iain Murray has updated the schedule to reflect one of his Safety Recommendations developed after the capsize, in reducing the number of preliminary rounds to five from seven. This safety recommendation followed team feedback indicating more maintenance time between races was desirable.

The Summer of Racing kicks off with an opening ceremony on 4 July, followed by a fleet race with the Defender and challengers on 5 July. The first race day of the Louis Vuitton Cup, America’s Cup Challenger Series, remains 7 July.
