The Longest Offshore Race in the Western Atlantic

The Atlantic Cup is a hard-fought, intense double-handed, offshore race held on the eastern seaboard of the United States every other spring in the even years. With over 1,000 nautical miles of offshore racing, the Atlantic Cup is the longest offshore race in the Western Atlantic. And with three different stages, a long distance leg, a sprint leg and a crewed inshore series, the Atlantic Cup is one of the toughest sailing races around. In addition, the Atlantic Cup provides shore-based activities for fans of all ages plus it is the most environmentally sustainable sailing race in the U.S.
