The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the New York Yacht Club to postpone 2020 Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex, which was to include the Swan American Regatta, from its scheduled dates of July 14 to 18 to a to-be-determined date in September. As September is quite a busy month for Nautor's Swan, including the Rolex Swan Cup in Sardinia among other European events, the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 edition of the Swan American Regatta

Last June, for the first time in over a decade, Nautor's Swan hosted the Swan American Regatta in the iconic setting of Newport as part of the New York Yacht Club's 165th Annual Regatta, North America's oldest annual event. The three-day regatta was a success, and earlier this year Nautor's Swan and the Club agreed to host the regatta each summer through 2022.

"Our American Swan owners are very important for us, and we want to be sure they feel like they are a part of our family," says Giovanni Pomati, Nautor Group CEO. "This year we are not able to be part of the event, but we remain committed to reestablishing the Swan American Regatta as an annual tradition in the United States. We look forward to sailing with our American Swan owners in 2021 and enjoying the fun and the excitement that is fundamental to the Spirit of Swan."
