This latest attraction at the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias is in the antechamber to a grand exhibition organised by the Museo de las Ciencias to be officially opened next month, December, entitled “”Top Sail”. Through this interactive show dedicated to navigation, wind and sea, the Museo de las Ciencias is joining in on the 2007 celebration of the 32nd America’s Cup in Valencia, the host city for the most important sailing competition in the world.

From this weekend on, visitors arriving at the cultural/educational complex will be able to see this real-size replica of the SUI64, built for a crew of 11 and 26 metres long, 3.9 metres beam, and a 30º-degree list.
