    Regatta Notes and Information
    UPDATE: The 2022 Pineapple Cup-Montego Bay Race has been cancelled due to travel restrictions and uncertainty around the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The new race dates will be January 21-28, 2023.


    The Montego Bay Yacht Club and Nigel Knowles, the Pineapple Cup Regatta Chairman are pleased to announce the 35th edition of the Pineapple Cup - Montego Bay Yacht Race will take place with two starts on January 22nd and 23rd, 2022.

    We're excited to bring you information on the 35th edition of the Pineapple Cup - Montego Bay Race! If this race is not on your winter sailing calendar, what are you waiting for? This, as always, will be one of the most-fun and challenging races of the winter!

    The Pineapple Cup is hosted by the Montego Bay Yacht Club with the support of the Storm Trysail Club and the Biscayne Bay Yacht Club and is organized by Manuka Sports Event Management. The event is once again open to multihulls and monohulls over 30 feet and will be scored under ORC and PHRF.

    In order to increase the overall enjoyment and reward of competing in this classic tropical ocean race, we have made one big enhancement for the 2022 edition. We're adjusting how we award the most coveted trophy, the Silver Perpetual Pineapple Cup. NEW for 2022, 1st overall on corrected time will be awarded to the winner of the most competitive fleet. The most competitive fleet will be calculated by averaging the corrected time deltas of the first 80% of the fleet. The fleet with the lowest average deltas will be eligible to win the Pineapple Cup.

    At 811 nautical miles, the Pineapple Cup is one of the oldest offshore yachting races and it also has one of the oldest yachting trophies. The trophy dates back to 1961 where it was handcrafted in London. Throughout the years, the trophy has been awarded to some of the most well known names in yachting including: John Kilroy, Ted Turner and Robert F Johnson. The winner of the 2019 Governor General's Trophy was awarded to the first place team in IRC, which was British entry Lady Mariposa onboard their Ker46.

    The current course record was set in 2019 at 2 days, 0 hours, 7 minutes and 44 seconds by Argo a Mod70.
