Ted Turner. Ed Baird. Dennis Conner. These world class sailors will tell you the Congressional Cup is pure match racing – a true test of sailing ability. They’re three of a long list of top sailors who have traveled to Long Beach to compete in what has been called the Grandfather of Modern Match Racing.
Pure match racing means boats are precisely uniform, which creates an opportunity to truly measure sailing strategy and skills. In this regatta there is no margin for error: It’s like a chess game on the water, and year after year the Congressional Cup delivers excitement.
In April, the Congressional Cup returns to Long Beach Yacht Club, and 2014 marks five decades of hosting the premier match race in sailing. World-renowned skippers will travel from New Zealand, England, and beyond to come and battle it out on the waters off Long Beach.
Enjoy the boats, the teams, the history and the excitement from the free viewing area at the Veterans Memorial Belmont Pier.
