A Word from MBYC Regatta Chair Nigel Knowles

It is now just under a year to go before the 35th running of our legendary Pineapple Cup race from Miami to Montego Bay, Jamaica. While we were disappointed to have to postpone the race this past January, we are looking forward to what we think of as one of the best ocean races around with not just fun and challenging conditions but great competition, and the warm water and sunshine in January that the Caribbean provides!

In 2019 we introduced a staggered start so as to ensure all boats finish much closer to one another. This allowed for bigger parties and more opportunities to enjoy the Montego Bay Yacht Club, famous for being one of the friendliest yacht clubs in the Caribbean and so we are looking forward to continuing that tradition in 2022.

New though for this year is the way in which we will award the coveted Pineapple Cup Trophy. We will be looking to the most competitive fleet as determined by finish delta. This will make the Pineapple Cup open to everyone who registers!

I invite you all to sign up early and help us bring in a large competitive fleet so we can get some great racing, exciting and fast sailing that all culminates in one of the most prestigious prizes and the best social on the sailing calendar.

I look forward to seeing you at the start of our 2022 Pineapple Cup race.
