About The Atlantic Cup
Manuka Sports Event Management organizes The Atlantic Cup presented by 11th Hour Racing which is the longest offshore race on the eastern seaboard of the United States. The Atlantic Cup started in 2011 as a concept event and grew to a multi-stage race with a focus on being the most environmentally responsible sailing race in the United States. The race is dedicated to the Class 40, a monohull race boat designed for shorthanded racing.
Competitors will race a 648 nautical mile offshore leg double-handed from Charleston to Brooklyn. From New York City, teams will race 360 nautical miles to Portland, Maine. The third leg is comprised of a two-day, inshore series with a crew of six Portland, Maine. For more on the Atlantic Cup, visit AtlanticCup.org
