How The Record Works

How The Record Works:

  • Competitors can choose a time that gives them the best weather window to break the record (For 2017, Competitors have between May 29 and October 31 to choose their window)
  • The boat with the best time in each class at the end of the season will be the record holder
  • If that time is not bested in subsequent years the boat remains the outright “Mount Gay Rum Around Jamestown Record” holder
  • Entrants must notify the Race Committee by 5pm the preceding day of a record attempt
  • Boats can sail around Jamestown in the direction of their choosing
  • A prize-giving party will be held at the end of every season to award trophies. The IYAC in Newport, RI will host the annual Awards Party.
  • A portion of each entry fee will benefit Sail Newport.
