Newport Yacht Club
This year’s ACCs will be part of the Bacardi Newport Sailing Week sponsored by EFG. Held out of the Newport Yacht Club in downtown Newport, RI, with the assistance of Sail Newport, this should be another great Bacardi event…and a great ACC for the Viper Fleet.
The schedule has been moved around a bit by the sponsors so not everyone is aware of the final timing…but the full details are now available HERE.
June’s most anticipated sailing event in the Northeast, the BACARDI Newport Sailing Week presented by EFG Bank, will return to Newport this summer for a week filled with good sailing and festivities. This year’s event will hold an exciting agenda with amazing sailing, an impressive “Light Photography” exhibit at Bowen’s Wharf, and exciting BACARDI events in bars and establishments throughout town. Host for this year’s event will be the Newport Yacht Club with the help of Sail Newport as the race committee.
With the continued support from our generous sponsors along with the precious and professional experience of Sail Newport, the BACARDI Newport Sailing Week, now in its fifth year, attracts sailors from all over the country. Five one design fleets will be participating. The fleets will gather and compete in a weekend regatta filled with fun and exciting racing on the waters of Narragansett Bay. A welcome cocktail and registration will take place on Friday, June 26th with racing on both Saturday and Sunday. After racing competitors will enjoy the warm BACARDI hospitality with plenty of food, drinks and good music!
Official Regatta Cocktail
The Bacardi “Cuban Storm” is the official drink of the regatta. Simple and refreshing, “Bacardi 8, Ginger Beer & Lime” is a sailor’s favorite that was introduced to celebrate the famed Bacardi Cup. Sailors and friends will be treated at the Bacardi bar inside the hospitality village.
