CORINTHIANS: CHAPTER 4

Just one month remains before the start of the fourth edition of the Rolex New York Yacht Club (NYYC) Invitational Cup. Taking place from September 12 to 19 at Harbour Court, the New York Yacht Club’s summer home in Newport, Rhode Island, this biennial one-design sailing event gathers together crews from the world’s most famous and influential yacht clubs for an impressive race series that has Corinthian ideals firmly at its core.

Under the event format, the competing yacht club teams sail matched NYYC Swan 42s with identically tuned rigs, and sails provided by the organizers. The emphasis is firmly on the skill of the competitors to determine the winner, with the international crews limited to non-professionals and all but two on each team having to be nationals of their club’s home country. The contest rewards preparation, teamwork and tactical expertise. It is a concept admired and embraced by all those taking part, and fits perfectly within the Rolex constellation of yachting events that is centred on a privileged alliance with the yacht clubs that form the very core of the sport.

The Royal Canadian Yacht Club comes into the event as the team to beat. Following a second-place finish at the inaugural (2009) event, it proved a dominant champion in 2011 securing a win, 20 points ahead of second-place finisher New York YC. The RCYC repeated this success in 2013 although the margin of victory was much slimmer, only six points. Across the three events to date, crews have been quick to acknowledge increasing levels of competition. The Canadian team captain in 2011 and 2013, 1984 Olympic Silver medallist Terry McLaughlin, pointed to good boat speed and positive teamwork as being the primary foundations for a successful campaign.
