What's new for the 35th edition of the classic ocean race?

The Pineapple Cup 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 2023 edition.

We're adjusting how we award the most coveted trophy, the Silver Perpetual Pineapple Cup. NEW for 2023, 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.
