Team Racing

Team racing is a fast-paced form of our sport that combines the allure of sailing with the dynamics of team sports.

The format pits two teams of three boats on a short course, where the combined team score determines the winner. The racing rules are used aggressively, which fosters an event that boasts strong player and spectator appeal.

Team Racing extends far beyond high school, college sailing and the U.S. Team Racing Championship for the Hinman Trophy. Team racing in keelboats may be the fastest growing element of this discipline. On the international level, U.S. team racers  dominated the ISAF World Championships from 2003 to 2009, winning four in a row before the British team broke the trend in 2011.
