2018 Queen's Cup

July 22, 2018
Newport, RI


The Queen's Cup will be run on July 22 off Newport, R.I. There will be one spinnaker class in the Queen's Cup for IRC yachts with a rating of 1.07 or faster. The Queen's Cup has a unique starting system in that each yacht may start within a 2-minute window of the starting gun and their actual elapsed time will be used to calculate their corrected time. All helmspersons must have a current Group 1 sailor classification.
This trophy was given by Queen Elizabeth II of England and formally presented to the Club by the British Ambassador in 1953. The former King's Cup (1912) was retired and is retained by the Club. This is one of the Club's oldest and most prestigious trophies with a notable list of winners.
