From the first edition in 2009, the success of the New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup reignited the tradition of international Corinthian competition between yacht clubs.

The biennial event – returning to Newport from Sept. 7-14 – fuses five days of intense racing with a social schedule. 

The 20 yacht club teams will race one-design NYYC Swan 42s – identically tuned and equipped with supplied sails – on Narragansett Bay and Rhode Island Sound, one of the world’s most legendary sailing venues. 

Competitors must be non-professional (Corinthian) sailors and members of the yacht clubs they represent; they must also be nationals of their countries.
