The Atlantic Cup presented by 11th Hour Racing is America’s Sailing Race. It is held annually on the eastern seaboard and is an intense, grueling race, as it tests sailors abilities to race shorthanded, offshore, and inshore.
The Atlantic Cup is also the only carbon neutral sailing race in the United States. Subsequently, it has a commitment to environmental stewardship both on and off the race course. Going into its third year, The Atlantic Cup also one of the fastest growing sailing properties.
The 2013 edition of the Atlantic Cup starts Saturday, May 11th in Charleston, South Carolina and will showcase the top Class 40 sailors as they race a 648 nautical mile off-shore leg double-handed from Charleston around the infamous, Cape Hatteras then north to New York City. Once in New York there will be a brief stopover before competitors start the coastal leg of the race. The coastal leg will take competitors along the same course as the 2011 and 2012 race: 260 nautical miles, south out of New York to a turning mark off the New Jersey coast before heading north to Newport. Once in Newport, competitors will race a two-day, inshore series with a crew of six. The combined overall winner of both stages will be the Atlantic Cup Champion.
