Notice of Race released and entries are now open!

 2019 Pineapple Cup Montego Bay Race

The Montego Bay Yacht Club is pleased to release 2019 Notice of Race and announce that registration is now OPEN!

The race will start in Miami on January 27, 2019. The Notice of Race is now available and registration is open and can be made via Yacht Scoring.


The Pineapple Cup is once again open to multihulls and monohulls over 30 feet and will be scored under IRC and PHRF. In order to increase the overall enjoyment and reward of competing in this classic tropical ocean race, we have made several enhancements for the 2019 edition.

The biggest change is the introduction of a staggered start. The majority of the fleet will depart Miami on Sunday the 27th of January. This start will be followed by the fastest boats on Monday the 28th of January. This will allow for a concentration of finishers that will allow all to be able to enjoy the renowned welcome festivities at the Montego Bay Yacht Club.

The Pineapple Cup will also be included in the SORC Islands in the Streams Series. Boats entered in Pineapple Cup will be able to use their Pineapple Cup score towards the overall SORC Islands in the Streams Series score. The series includes five races and provides an overall season championship for the Florida winter sailing season. Information on the series can be found at:
