2024 Race Week At Newport Presented By Rolex & The Tp52 World Championship
July 16-20, 2024 - TP52 World Championship
July 17-20, 2024 - Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex
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 year the race incorporates the 2024 TP52 World Championships as well as being one of the events in the ORC summer series that will culminated at the World Championships in late September.
This biennial race week is now in its 14th 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 with the exception of the TP52s, will race at the same time with racing running from Wednesday, July 17, to Saturday, July 20, culminating with the Rolex Awards Dinner.
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. Race Week at Newport is supported by presenting sponsor Rolex.
