John Lovell and Charlie Ogletree, representing Southern Yacht Club, won the 2003 Little America’s Cup which, for the first time since 1976, was decided by the final match in
the best four-out-of-seven finals.
The Trustees have also announced that the 18-HT class has been selected for the 2004 event. Competitors will be allowed to bring their own boat which will permit teams to take advantage of the development aspects of the 18-HT class. The 18-HT class will assume measurement responsibilities for the event and will coordinate charters through multiple builders for any teams requiring them. Teams interested in chartering should contact 18-HT class representative Hunt Stookey here. Additional information is available on the 18-HT class website.
The Notice of Race is expected to be available by the end of the year. However, the format for racing will remain the same - short-course, umpired match races..
