Unlike handicap racing, the 52 SUPER SERIES races are on a simple first-past-the-post format, real time racing with no post-race time compensation. Owners and crews love the high speeds, the exceptional power to weight ratio, the dinghy-like feel on the helm and the need to pursue small incremental advantages to win races. It truly remains a unique proposition within the sport of sailing. The 52 SUPER SERIES is the best monohull racing in the world.

Competition Format
Each of the five regattas consists of around ten races, with a mixture of windward-leeward and coastal courses depending on the venue. Usually there might be four days of windward-leeward races and one day of coastal courses, but this may be more in a location where the coastal racing is special. Over the course of the season all results stand – there are no discards – and typically that means around 45 to 50 races in the season.

Newport Living & Lifestyles video above published May 8, 2018: Champion Sailor and executive director Brad Read of Sail Newport speaks on the impact of the Volvo Ocean Race and VOR Village at Fort Adams State Park in Newport Rhode Island. Through VOR’s nine month journey with the world’s toughest sailors from around the world, Newport Rhode Island is directly impacting children’s interest in sailing, the RI economy, Earth conservationists and the sailing community as a whole.

Newport, Rhode Island, for many years, was home to the series of yacht races for the America's Cup. The waters off Newport have been a key sailing venue for the New York Yacht Club (NYYC) since the beginning of its history. In addition to its Manhattan headquarters, located inland, the NYYC maintains "Harbour Court", a clubhouse opened in 1988 on the water in Newport.

Don't Miss Out on the New York Yacht Club's 2018 Regatta Season:

New York Yacht Club video above published on May 15, 2018: "Whether it's the tradition and history of the 164th Annual Regatta, the pure competition of the One-Design Regatta or the pageantry of Race Week at Newport (Rhode Island) presented by Rolex, the New York Yacht Club is hosting an event for you this summer. Sign-up now and set your sights on Newport, and the podium."

Day 4 RC44 Portoroz Cup - Remarkable come from behind victory for Team Aqua

RC44 Class Association video above published May 13, 2018: At the RC44 Portoroz Cup, it all came down to the final top mark rounding of the final race: Team CEEREF of local host Igor Lah picked up a penalty and, having to complete a mandatory turn, dropped her to last place. Meanwhile a second place in this race for Team Aqua allowed Chris Bake’s team to clinch victory overall by just one point from Team CEEREF on this Slovenian stop of the 2018 RC44 circuit, despite their having come last in today’s first two races. In fact the top four boats all finished within two points here, with Aleph Racing and Peninsula Petroleum putting in strong final day performances leaving them tied on points in third and fourth respectively.
