The organizers of the Transatlantic Race 2011 (TR 2011), the Royal Yacht Squadron, http://nyyc.org/ [Sorry, this link had a problem]_York_Yacht_Club [Sorry, this link had a problem], http://www.rorc.org/!Royal_Ocean_Racing_Club and http://www.stormtrysail.org/!Storm_Trysail_Club [Sorry, this link had a problem], have extended the deadline to enter the Race to March 31, 2011.

With the transatlantic fleet now over 30 entries and many new inquiries following the success of the RORC Caribbean 600 - part of the companion Atlantic Ocean Racing Series - the organizers encourage those interested to enter the TR 2011 as soon as possible to secure a spot since the Notice of Race notes a maximum of 50 yachts for the Race.

The TR 2011 will cover 2,975 miles from Newport, R.I., to the Lizard in England. The focus of pre-race activities will be the New York Yacht Club’s Harbour Court clubhouse in Newport, R.I. There will be three staggered starts from June 26 to July 3. The awards ceremony on August 9th and other post-race activities will be held at the Castle, the home of the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes, England.

The fleet will include IRC Racing, IRC Racer/Cruiser, Classic and Open divisions with a minimum length overall (LOA) of 40 feet and no maximum. Competition is building within several segments of the diverse fleet, notably the 100’ and up range which includes Sojana, Rambler 100, ICAP Leopard and Maltese Falcon.

Tight racing is also expected in other classes and divisions, such as yachts in the under 50’ range in IRC Racing and IRC Racer/Cruiser including the Class 40s - Concise 2, Dragon, and Kamoa'e, the Rogers 46s - Shakti and Varuna, as well as British Soldier ASA, Jacqueline IV, Sasha, Dawn Star and Carina.

The TR 2011 is the centerpiece of the Atlantic Ocean Racing Series (AORS) and is organized in concert with the following clubs: http://www.rmyc.org/!Royal_Malta_Yacht_Club [Sorry, this link had a problem], http://www.annapolisyc.com/!Annapolis_Yacht_Club [Sorry, this link had a problem], http://www.ilyc.org/!Ida_Lewis_Yacht_Club [Sorry, this link had a problem], http://www.mobayyachtclub.com/!Montego_Bay_Yacht_Club [Sorry, this link had a problem], http://www.usna.edu/SailingTeam/!Naval_Academy_Sailing_Squadron [Sorry, this link had a problem], http://www.montegobayrace.com/!Jamaica_Yachting_Association [Sorry, this link had a problem], http://www.antiguayachtclub.com/!Antigua_Yacht_Club [Sorry, this link had a problem] and http://www.rcnsanxenxo.com/!Real_Club_Nautico_de_Sanxenxo [Sorry, this link had a problem].


Two races in the AORS have been completed: the http://www.montegobayrace.com/!Pineapple_Cup_-_Montego_Bay_Race [Sorry, this link had a problem] and the http://caribbean600.rorc.org/!RORC_Caribbean_600 [Sorry, this link had a problem]. The Pineapple Cup, from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. to Montego Bay, Jamaica, a distance of 811 miles, was won by Genuine Risk, a 97-foot canting keel super maxi skippered by Hugo Stenbeck. In the RORC Caribbean 600, George David’s Rambler 100, took line and overall IRC honors and set the monohull record of one day, 16 hours, 20 minutes and 2 seconds for the course’s 600 miles.

In addition to the TR 2011, upcoming races in the AORS are the http://v009u07qap.maximumasp.com/DesktopDefault.aspx?tabid=46!Annapolis_to_Newport_Race [Sorry, this link had a problem] (June 3); http://fastnet.rorc.org/!Rolex_Fastnet_Race [Sorry, this link had a problem] (August 14); Biscay Race (September 11-12) and http://www.rolexmiddlesearace.com/index.cfm!Rolex_Middle_Sea_Race (October 22).

Interest in competing for the Series has been increasing rapidly with nearly half of the TR 2011 entries planning to compete for the AORS. Of the seven races in the Atlantic Ocean Racing Series, three races including the Transatlantic Race 2011 must be completed to qualify. Races will be weighted equally with the exception of the Transatlantic Race 2011, which will be weighted 1.5 times. Cox-Sprague points will be awarded within individual races in the series to accommodate differences in fleet sizes. A yacht will be scored in the series using its two best finishes in addition to the Transatlantic Race 2011. Awards for the AORS will be presented in November, 2011 at the New York Yacht Club’s Annual Awards Dinner in New York.
