One month before UBS Trophy
The UBS Trophy, sponsored by UBS and co-sponsored by BMW, will showcase America's Cup-style match racing at Newport between old rivals Team Alinghi and Oracle BMW Racing, from 19-26 June. Up to three races may be sailed daily, weather permitting, with the start scheduled at 1:30pm. The regatta will see a combination of professional and owner-driver races on a short course. The owner-driver series will be raced on 24-25 June with the official layday scheduled for 23 June.
To ensure that the racing is accessible to everyone, the regatta has been specifically designed to bring the racing close to shore, with starts and finishes off Fort Adams.
On 12 June at 11:00am, SUI-64 is to be unveiled at Newport Shipyard.
