New Corinthian Spirit Class
The Americas’ Cup Superyacht Regatta is including the new Corinthian Spirit Class, recently implemented by the SuperYacht Racing Association (SYRA), in conjunction with the Offshore Racing Congress (ORC), as part of the Regatta divisions. An overview and a press release from SYRA about the new initiative can be found below and more information will follow shortly.
The racing area is intended to take place northeast, east and south of Bermuda where the water is shallow enough to lay marks and will enable the race committee to set interesting, varying courses for the 3 days of racing. It is planned to run each race for approximately 2.5 - 3 hours for the majority of the fleet (racing time for the fastest and slowest boats in the fleet will be somewhat shorter and longer respectively). The starting area will be close to St Georges Harbour and inflatable marks as opposed to islands, rocks and government buoys will be used.
No course will be the same and will foresee upwind, downwind and reaching starts being in the mix. Course and leg lengths will vary, keeping superyacht sailing characteristics, speed potential and weather conditions in mind. Provisional race course marks and sample race courses can be viewed and downloaded below. Please note that these are not the final courses.
