From Charleston NC to New York City to Portland ME, Atlantic Cup presented by 11th Hour Racing is the only dedicated Class 40 sailing race in the United States. The race showcases top sailors in this class in a 3-leg event and Portland is the stopover for the third leg. The Atlantic Cup finale is an inshore-style race with Casco Bay as the backdrop.

The Atlantic Cup presented by 11th Hour Racing is a hard-fought, intense double-handed, offshore race held on the eastern seaboard of the United States every other spring in the even years. Some of the best short-handed sailors around the globe vie for the chance to take hold of The Atlantic Cup! In addition, the Atlantic Cup provides shore-based activities for fans of all ages plus it is the most environmentally sustainable sailing race in the U.S.
