PHOTOS: The Atlantic Cup 2014

Published on May 26th, 2014

The 2014 Atlantic Cup started in Charleston, SC on May 10 for the 685-mile doublehanded leg to New York City. Following a brief stop-over in New York City, doublehanded teams begin on May 17 to race a 240-mile leg to Newport, RI. The third and final leg consists of two days (May 24-25) of inshore racing in Newport with a crew of six.

Photos and video are from the third and final leg – the Inshore Series in Narragansett Bay. Dragon was leading the first race on May 24 en route to the first mark when they hit a rock just off Jamestown. Emma Creighton, their bowman, was launched into the water, but was quickly retrieved. The team withdrew from the race and motored back to the Newport Shipyard to assess the damage. Upon pulling the boat out of the water they discovered major damage to the keel box and have withdrawn from the remainder of the inshore series.
