The Atlantic Cup, starts in 100 days

Race prep is getting busier and busier with each day and the 2020 race is shaping up to have one of the largest fleets in race history!

We’re excited to welcome two new teams to the Atlantic Cup! Offshore sailing Legend Kito de Pavant will race onboard his Class40 #142 Made in Midi and Morgane Ursault-Poupon will race on #30 UP-Sailing. Stay tuned, we have that more teams to announce in the coming weeks too!

Hugh Piggin, Race Director, said, “The 2020 Atlantic Cup is looking like it will be both the largest and most competitive fleet in Atlantic Cup history. 2018 Champions Catherine Pourre and Pietro Luciani on Eärendil will be looking to defend their title, but they’ll have to perform well against Vendée Globe entrants, Solitaire du Figaro winners and some of America’s most promising talent. With three very different legs, the Atlantic Cup is a challenge to that of what most offshore shorthanded sailors are used to, and it’s always exciting to watch!”
