The Atlantic Cup presented by 11th Hour Racing is a hard-fought, intense double-handed, offshore sailing race held on the eastern seaboard of the United States every other May in the even years. Some of the best short-handed sailors around the globe vie for the chance to take hold of The Atlantic Cup!

Additionally, the Atlantic Cup presented by 11th Hour Racing is committed to being the most environmentally responsible sailing race in the United States. Since 2012, teams and race management have worked together to create a fully carbon neutral event. As the race grows, race management will continue to seek innovative ideas and products that align with its mission. Over the course of the 3 stage, 1000 mile race, boats will utilize hydro-generators as well as other sustainable power sources. The technology of our brands will be on display in products such as;

Watt & Sea Hydrogenerators, providing the most environmentally friendly power generation available on the water today.

Karver Sailing's bioplastic construction, allowing lightweight and high strength composite furlers, blocks and halyard locks to be built with minimal petroleum.

Bainbridge's own AirX Spinnaker fabrics harness the wind with maximum efficiency, launching these Class40 boats up the eastern seaboard of the United States.

Bainbridge USA is excited to be on-board as a partner for the 2016 campaign, and provide support to the teams of this premier Class40 sailing event through our affiliated brands
