2022 Race Week at Newport presented by rolex

July 13-16, 2022
Newport, RI

Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex was created in 1998 by merging two popular events hosted by New York Yacht Club and Rolex: the IMS National Championships and the One-Design Championship Regatta. It was designed to give sailors the opportunity to compete in handicap-rated fleet racing during the first part of the event and one-design class racing during the latter part, and in subsequent years, the event has included the incorporation of significant events into its structure, having doubled as the Rolex IMS World Championship in 2000, the Sparkman & Stephens 75th Anniversary Celebration in 2004, Olin Stephens’s 100th birthday in 2008, and the Rolex US-IRC National Championship in 2010.

This biennial race week is now in its 12th running, and has become a favorite of sailors due to the spectacular sailing conditions, unparalleled onshore hospitality and the great race management provided by the Club's all-volunteer race committee. As with the last two editions, all competing yachts will race at the same time with racing running from Wednesday, July 13, to Saturday, July 16, culminating with the Rolex Awards Dinner.

True race weeks are a rarity in today's time-crunched world and the Club is proud to keep that traditional alive with five days of activities and racing. Different course configurations and sailing areas, such as buoy racing and mid-distance courses, will make the week lively for competitors, while the Stadium Sailing will allow spectators to watch the racing from Fort Adams.
