The Atlantic Cup Sails into Newport
May 19, 2014
Welcome to Newport Atlantic Cup sailors! Yesterday evening the Atlantic Cup sailors arrived in Narragansett Bay. The 240 mile second leg of the Atlantic Cup saw very fast racing that shattered the course record by more than 6 hours. Team JeffreyMacFarlane.com won this leg by just 1 minute and 20 seconds over second place finishers, Dragon.
This intense double-handed, offshore sailing race set sail from Charleston on May 10, stopped in New York City and finally made it to Newport over the weekend with some boats arriving in the wee hours. The race is also committed to being the most environmentally responsible sailing race in the U.S.
