New York Yacht Club’s Race Week – Rolex

Come One, Come All to Race Week at Newport Presented by Rolex

Every other summer since 1998, the best and brightest race boats from across the United States and Europe have gathered in Newport for the New York Yacht Club’s Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex. But this celebration of our sport, which takes place July 16 to 21, isn’t exclusive to the latest carbon rockets.

Race Week at Newport has divisions for one-designs, PHRF and ORC handicap boats and classics, provided they are over 25 feet in length. There’s also a division for offshore multihulls. Bring your family, bring your friends, bring the guys and gals you battle against each week around the cans.

Every entry receives the same first-class treatment ashore and afloat, and the best teams from each division are recognized at the Rolex Awards Banquet on Saturday, July 21. There’s no better place to race this summer than Newport, and there’s no better event than 2018 Race Week at Newport Presented by Rolex.
