2022 Resolute Cup

2022 Resolute Cup

September 12 to 17, 2022
New York Yacht Club Harbour Court
Newport, R.I.

The Resolute Cup was first run in 2010 as the U.S. Qualifying Series for the Rolex New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup. The biennial regatta, which is sailed out of New York Yacht Club-Harbor Court, has since developed an identity of its own. Yacht clubs from around the United States send their best amateur sailors to Newport, R.I., to compete for national bragging rights and the possibility of a trip to the Rolex New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup, sailing's premiere international Corinthian big-boat regatta. After canceling the 2020 edition due to COVID, we are very excited to present the event this year. The 2022 Resolute Cup will be sailed Sept. 12 to 17 in New York Yacht Club's fleet of 23-foot Sonars and a fleet of RS21s provided by RS Sailing. With provided sails, equalized rig tune and a regular boat rotation, it's a true one-design event.

Invited teams from 2020 will automatically receive an invitation to the 2022 event. Other interested teams should complete the Request for Invitation no later than April 22. In the event a space becomes available, teams that have requested an invitation will be considered.
