The 2019 Transatlantic Yacht Race is open for entries!
The Transatlantic Race 2019 is organized jointly by the Royal Yacht Squadron, New York Yacht Club, Royal Ocean Racing Club and Storm Trysail Club. The race is a direct descendant of the first great transatlantic ocean race, which started from New York Harbor on December 11, 1866. The 2019 edition will be the 31st transatlantic race organized by the New York Yacht Club, and it remains one of the sport’s most enticing challenges.
The Transatlantic Race 2019 is a race from Newport, Rhode Island, USA to Cowes, UK. A gate will be included at Lizard Point to preserve the Record course established in 2011 and maintained by the World Sailing Speed Record Council.
