Why two different start dates?
The organizers are attempting to get all boats finished in time for the awards party at New York Yacht Club’s Harbor Court on Wednesday, June 7 at 1530. In order to achieve this some classes are starting earlier than others: Friday 2 June is the start for PHRF 2, Performance Cruising 2 and all Classic boats, Saturday 3 June is the start for the more performance oriented monohulls and the multihull classes. In 2015 the start time was moved ahead as well which gave everyone an excellent chance of finishing the race in time to make the All Hands Party and Trophy presentation in Newport.

Why should I reserve dock space at Newport Yachting Center?
Newport Yachting Center will be Regatta Headquarters in Newport. The organizers have once again secured dock space at Newport Yachting Center at a discounted rate. The race committee, press office, scoring office and hospitality committee will be dockside. A bar will be open and a monitor will have the live tracking available so you can check out the competition. Swapping sea stories with your competitors is part of the tradition of any ocean race. Newport Yachting Center is providing this opportunity. Please reserve early as there are a limited number of slips.

How do I apply for my A2N PHRF Rating?
We have posted the A2N PHRF Application on the race website under “Additional Documents.” Please refer to this document and work with your boat dealer, your rigger, and your sail maker to complete this application. The completed application should be sent to:

How can I get my cruising gear transported to Newport?

Transportation of Gear & Guidelines Form - from Newport to Annapolis
