Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex


  • New York Yacht Club 5 Halidon Avenue Newport, RI, 02840 United States (map)

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 biennial race week is now in its 12th 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.
