|We love this time of year, both for the festivity and because we are just over 150 days until the teams competing in the 2018 Atlantic Cup depart Charleston, South Carolina bound for Brooklyn, New York and the finish of Leg 1 of America's longest and most sustainable sailing race.
Preparations continue to move forward at a rapid pace and Manuka SEM, organizers of the Atlantic Cup are pleased to announce the return of two further teams vying for the races top spot.
Official entries opened on Monday October 16th, and we are excited to announce two further teams that'll be on the start line with both Dragon and Oakcliff Racing. Toothface II, an Akilaria RC3 campaigned by Atlantic Cup veterans Mike Dreese and Tristan Mouligne will line up alongside Privateer, a Kiwi 40FC which has recently been bought by American sailor and OSTAR winner Jonathon Green.
Manuka SEM and the Atlantic Cup would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
