2009 NYYC Invitational Cup

2009 invitationalcupNo one knew quite what to expect. Even though a year and a half of planning went into getting 19 teams from 14 nations to Newport, R.I., for the inaugural New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup. The event, which started on Wednesday (Sept. 16) , and concluded today (Saturday, Sept. 19), was conceived and very well received as a high-profile regatta for amateur yacht club teams. To that end, the New York Yacht Club put forth its best effort not only to host the event but also to field its own team, which won after 11 spectacular races on Rhode Island Sound and Narragansett Bay.

Preliminary Reports:

9/10: Yacht Clubs from Around the World to Descend on Newport
9/15: A Magnificent Show About to Begin
