The America’s Cup was held in Newport from 1930 until 1983 with 12 Metres racing from 1958 to 1983. The upcoming 12 Metre Worlds will be the highlight of Newport’s summer yachting scene... an extraordinary reunion of world class sailors on 24 legendary racing yachts from six different countries.

MJM Yachts is a Gold Sponsor and 53z #1 BREEZE is the Official Boat of the International Jury (Illustrated above.) All participating MJMs will fly VIP flags for choice inner circle spectator status. To date, seven MJMs are signed up with eight more pending confirmation and the fleet is growing. Imagine the MJM parade to the starting area!

A fleet racing format will determine winners in four divisions: Grand Prix, Modern, Traditional, and Vintage. They will sail the same America’s Cup courses that brought fame to scenic Newport and its surrounding waters.
