The 2012 Atlantic Cup presented by 11th Hour Racing, the first carbon-neutral sailing event in the United States, has announced additional crew members with a wealth of sailing experience that will be joining the premier U.S. sailing event for its final leg - inshore series racing in Narragansett Bay in Newport, R.I. this Saturday and Sunday (May 26 – 27). Currently only four points separates race-leading Mare (GER) from Bodacious Dream (Second place, USA) and Campaign De France (Third place, FRA).

Competitors were awarded points equivalent to double their finishing position in the two offshore legs, with a maximum of 20 points awarded for finishing. For the inshore races points are designated based on each boat's finishing position (first through 14th). The total of both offshore legs, combined with a boat's best four of five scheduled races in Newport's inshore series, will determine a boat's total score. The boat with the overall lowest point total will be crowned the 2012 Atlantic Cup Champion.

For the inshore series teams will now use a crew of six for the five races held in Newport. Races will be held from 11am-3pm in Narragansett Bay with the start/finish line being just off Fort Adams. Immediately following the inshore series the event will culminate at the Newport Shipyard with a Prize Giving Party to disperse the $30,000 purse, one of the largest in U.S. sailing. The Prize Giving Party is open to the public, however tickets are required for entry. Tickets can be purchased online.
