The Atlantic Cup education program teaches kids about the science behind sailing and culminates with the meeting of a skipper and a tour of a Class40. In 2012, Ben Poucher from Icarus racing gave the students from the Earth School in New York a glimpse into the life of a professional sailor.
The Atlantic Cup presented by 11th Hour Racing is a dedicated professional Class 40 race held annually in the U.S. The 2013 edition starts with a doublehanded leg on May 11 from Charleston, SC to New York, NY (648 nm), and another doublehanded leg on May 18 from New York to Newport, RI (260 NM). The event concludes on May 25-26 with inshore fully crewed (six people on board) buoy racing in Narragansett Bay.
