May 19th-25th: Stop by and check out the fleet at the Newport Shipyard

From May 19th to 25th the Atlantic Cup comes back to Newport for the 4th time! Join us as we welcome the fleet taking part of the largest and only Class40 race in the United States. The final in-shore series of the race will be held over Memorial Day weekend from 12pm-4pm on May 24th and 25th. Plus for the very first time in the USA, the IMOCA 60 fleet and the Class 40 fleet will be together at the Newport Shipyard. The IMOCA 60s will be preparing for the NY-BCN race and the Class 40s will be in for the Inshore Series. Both classes of boats are the top of the sport in terms of short-handed offshore racing so this will be a great opportunity to check out these powerful racing machines.
