  • Annapolis to Newport Race 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.

  • Bermuda One-Two Bermuda One-Two
    The objective of this particular race is and remains the making of a single-handed/shorthanded passage, which encourages safety, good seamanship, communication, and on-going gear and technique development and testing. The race is sailed in two parts: Leg One by a lone skipper from Newport, Rhode Island to Bermuda, and, following a brief layover, Leg Two back Newport with one crew member hence the origin of the event's name.

  • Buckett Regatta Buckett Regatta
    Saint Barths & Newport, Rhode Island. Bucket Regattas brings one of the largest yachting fleets together with equal focus on winning the race and winning the party. The primary reason for the success of the Bucket Regattas is that the emphasis is more upon wholesome fun than about winning. The stated goal is to "win the party". The omnipresent, over riding conundrum for the Bucket Raced Committee is to convince the most competitive owners on planet (demonstrated by the fact that they own these things in the first place) that winning isn't important!!

  • Newport Bermuda Race Newport Bermuda Race
    The Newport Bermuda Race is a 635-mile ocean race, much of it out of sight of land, usually lasting three to six days. It crosses a stretch of the Atlantic Ocean known for challenging weather, especially in the Gulf Stream, where there are strong currents. Every two years in mid-June, more than 150 boats start from the historic seaport of Newport, Rhode Island. The fleet has five divisions to allow seaworthy boats of many sizes and types to be raced fairly and aggressively for an array of trophies awarded in Bermuda at an elegant ceremony at Government House, the residence of the governor of this tropical island. In keeping with the 100-year traditions of amateur sailors and strong family spirit, most of the boats tend to have amateur crews comprised of friends and family members. The race maintains its international prestige through competitive fairness, an exemplary safety record, and a responsive race organization handled by the volunteer members of the Cruising Club of America and the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club. Sailors everywhere dream of adding the Newport Bermuda Race to their life list of adventures.
