Countdown to The Atlantic Cup 2018 is on

We're happy to report the sixth edition of the Atlantic Cup is less than a year away! The longest offshore race in the Western Atlantic dedicated to the Class40 will again start from Charleston, South Carolina May 26, 2018 and culminate the weekend of June 9th in Portland, Maine. In addition, we're thrilled to announce that we’ll be returning as sponsors for the 2018 campaign.

With over 1,000nm of ocean racing, the Atlantic Cup is the longest offshore race in the Western Atlantic and also the U.S.’ only short-handed offshore race dedicated to the Class 40.

The race was created in 2011 to showcase short-handed, offshore racing with hard fought competition and exciting shore based events, while also being the most environmentally sustainable sailing race in the United States. The Atlantic Cup has been carbon neutral since 2012 and was the first and is the only sports event in the U.S. to be ISO 20121 compliant.

The 2018 race will start in Charleston, South Carolina May 26th, stop in New York City May 28th-June 2nd and finish in Portland, Maine June 4th-10th. Already, six teams have confirmed entry with another four indicating interest!

Atlantic Cup Race Director, Hugh Piggin, stated, “We are extremely pleased to announce the sixth edition of the Atlantic Cup. Since the race’s inception, it has grown from a small concept to a well-known, extremely competitive race on the international Class40 calendar. We anticipate a fleet of at least 10 Class40s from Europe and the U.S. on the start line and are delighted to have so many of our prior sponsors already committed for 2018 including 11th Hour Racing, Bainbridge International, AARP and Hyatt Place.”

We can't wait for another great edition of this race!
