2018 marked the 54th Congressional Cup, a World Sailing Grade One Match Race event, hosted by Long Beach Yacht Club.
Ted Turner. Ed Baird. Dennis Conner. These world class sailors will tell you the Congressional Cup is pure match racing - a true test of sailing ability. They're three out of a long list of top sailors who have traveled to Long Beach to compete in what has been called the Grandfather of Modern Match Racing. Pure match racing means boats are precisely uniform, which creates an opportunity to truly measure sailing strategy and skills. In this regatta there is no margin for error: It's like a chess game on the water, and year after year the Congressional Cup delivers excitement.
Taylor Canfield and Team US One have won the 2018 Congressional Cup – after an intense five-day battle with nine other of the world’s top match racing talent; and fierce finals with Dean Barker and Team American Magic, who have finished second.
