International Teams Return to Newport

It is a testament to the ideals of Corinthian competition, and the camaraderie associated with the sport that for the fourth edition of the Rolex New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup, six of the 17 entered yacht club teams will be welcomed back as four-time veterans of this highly-regarded event.

Hailing from all corners of the globe, the returning teams – Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, the Japan Sailing Federation, Real Club Náutico de Barcelona (ESP), the Royal Yacht Squadron (GBR), Royal Cork Yacht Club (IRL) and the two-time defending champion, the Royal Canadian Yacht Club – are drawn by the intensity of the on-the-water competition which is enhanced by notable social events held at Harbour Court, New York Yacht Club’s iconic clubhouse overlooking Newport harbour.

Woven into the fabric of this event is the historic partnership of Rolex and New York Yacht Club, which was forged in the 1950s. Through this enduring association, one of yachting’s greatest traditions was established with a winning sailor being presented with a Rolex timepiece in recognition of achieving excellence in competition.

“We are proud to be back in this sophisticated and prestigious event,” said Yoshihiko Hattori on behalf of the Japan Sailing Federation (JSAF) team.

The opportunity to represent some of the most prestigious clubs in the world, as well as one’s country, is a key motivation for the teams that repeatedly undertake the logistical and competitive challenges that are inherent in participating in an event of this calibre.

The JSAF team has finished in the top six in each of their previous appearances in the Invitational Cup. Building their team for 2015 from a crew that has sailed together for over ten years and are three-time Japanese National Champions, they hope to improve on that record.

Likewise, Irish helmsman Anthony O’Leary has assembled his crew based on their performance on his winning Ker 40, ANTIX. Representing the Royal Cork Yacht Club, generally considered to be the world’s oldest yacht club, could be a daunting task for O’Leary who focuses most of his sailing efforts on offshore racing. However, a 5-8-4 record indicates that while the Irish team infrequently sails one-design boats of the size of the Swan 42s used for the Rolex New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup, they are strong competitors within reach of the prize.
