Kicking off the Summer Season

The Annapolis-Newport race was officially established in 1947 to be on a continuing basis in alternate years with the Newport-Bermuda Race. Until the mid-50s, it was the Newport-Annapolis race, but after much complaining by the competitors about slow trips up the Chesapeake after a long ocean race, the course was reversed in 1957.

The record time for the race is held by Warrior, Stephen Murray Jr.'s modified Volvo 70, who set a new course record in 2019 by completing the race in 40 hours, 14 minutes and 36 seconds, win line honors and take home the trophy for lowest elapsed time of a monohull. This broke the previous record set by Carerra, Joseph Dockery's Farr 60 skippered by Chris Larson, in 2001 at 42 hours, 58 minutes, 12 seconds.
