- Annapolis to Newport Race
The Annapolis to Newport Race is an East Coast tradition. The Annapolis to Newport race is one of the most historic and well-known of the US East Coast blue water races. Linking two seaports dating from our nation's birth, Annapolis and Newport, the race provides a contrast between the country's largest estuary, the Chesapeake Bay, and the Atlantic Ocean. Alternating years with the Newport to Bermuda Race, it's a staple on any offshore sailor's racing schedule. 2013 was the 34th running of the 475 mile biennial Annapolis-Newport Race. However, the race has existed in various forms back to 1871, 1875, and 1879 when it went from Sandy Hook to Cape May with two to five entries each race. After a big time gap, it was raced again in 1927-33 and 1939 from New London, CT to Gibson Island, MD. In 1941, the race was from New London to Hampton, VA, and during the same year, a Newport-Annapolis race was promoted, but World War II intervened. The Annapolis-Newport race was officially established in 1947 to be on a continuing basis in alternate years with the Newport-Bermuda Race. Until the mid-50s, it was the Newport-Annapolis race, but after much complaining by the competitors about slow trips up the Chesapeake after a long ocean race, the course was reversed in 1957.

- The Ocean Race
Since 1973, The Ocean Race has been the toughest test of a team in sport. Competition is in our DNA. Sustainability is at the core of everything we do. Nature drives us. The Southern Ocean is our arena. There, the world's best sailors – champions, record breakers, pioneers – duel, with everything at stake. This is an ocean endurance test like no other. A true feat of human ambition. With each edition, the tools evolve – but the racetrack remains as unforgiving as ever. What began as a round-the-world adventure now stands as one of sport's great challenges, with sailors pushing limits of possibility in pursuit of the ultimate glory – The Ocean Race trophy. The race was the first to use the new One Design class, the Volvo Ocean 65. Two classes will compete in the next edition of the race with the addition of the high-tech, foiling IMOCA 60 class adding a design and technical element. The one-design VO65 fleet will race on its third lap of the planet, with an emphasis on competition, youth and crew diversity.
