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!

We’re gearing up for Newport!


New England’s premier boating event, The Newport International Boat Show kicks off a busy fall season for the Bainbridge team. This year our booth will be bigger than ever, filled with more products, more show specials and even new video screens helping to showcase the ever-expanding variety of premium brands that we represent!

Come and see, touch, feel (tap, hit, tip, splash water on…) many of the Plastimo compass models we carry on our interactive display. In addition, man-overboard essentials like Dan Buoys, Rescue Slings and Safety Ladders along with industry leading Lifejackets & Life Rafts from Plastimo will also be on hand.

A new rope display will get you all tangled up in the strength, quality and selection Yale Cordage has to offer. Come and see the range available – all of it is made in the USA!

For those wanting to learn about the value of a Hydrogenerator for producing sustainable energy at sea - we have a great Watt & Sea display, and an even better team of experts to answer your questions.

Considering a windlass? Anchor yourself to our booth and see what Italwinch has to offer in both vertical and horizontal varieties of this stylish product range.

We will have the latest products from Karver Systems on display as well. Their manufacturing technology is constantly turning out some of the lightest, strongest, (and best looking) hardware available for your boat. Make the same choice as the world’s greatest sailors!

Rounding out the product lineup for this year’s show is the U.S. launch of SPX, the new premium woven polyester sailcloth available now from Bainbridge. Available in both Balanced and Strong Fill varieties, new SPX sets the standard.

As if all this was not enough, we will also be kicking off the centennial celebrations for our 100th Birthday at the Newport Show!  Bainbridge started on the Boston waterfront in 1917 and has continuously offered only the very best marine products for one hundred years. Stop by the booth, wish us “Happy Birthday” and you could be the one going home with a birthday present from our Grand Centennial Draw.

We will have all this excitement packed into booths 26-27-28 in tent A, from September 15-18th and look forward to seeing you there!
