Argo Group Gold Cup 2013. The Royal Bermuda Yacht Club and Argo Group have set the dates for the upcoming match racing event. The penultimate event on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour is scheduled to start 8 October on Hamilton Harbour in Bermuda. Racing will continue through the finals and the prizegiving at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club on Sunday 13 October.

October is a perfect time to sail and vacation in Bermuda and the Argo Group Gold Cup is a showcase ‘spectator’ event culminating in the exciting finals weekend October 12th-13th. All Gold Cup racing is spectator friendly with courses set in Hamilton Harbour from just off of the RBYC marina wall to the harbour shore along the gardens of the Fairmont Hamilton Princess Hotel. Special rates for Gold Cup week are available at the Hamilton Princess Hotel.

This year will mark the 63rd staging of races for the King Edward VII Gold Cup Trophy, with previous winners including some of the greatest names ever to match race.

The Argo Group Gold Cup is the penultimate sixth stage of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour, in which the teams compete for the ISAF Match Racing World Championship. Match racing in Bermuda for The King Edward VII Gold Cup is recognized as one of the classic heritage events on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour.
