The Congressional Cup is slated for April 18 to 22, 2023.

The Congressional Cup has been regarded as the ‘grandfather of match racing’ since 1965. The event established LBYC as an innovator in the game of match racing; pioneering on-the-water umpiring and setting a world-wide standard that endures today.

As a paragon on the global match racing circuit and Championship level stop on the World Match Racing Tour, the Congressional Cup is guaranteed the hottest sailing talent and action on the waters off Long Beach each year.

The format for Congressional Cup 2023 will continue as a 10-team, double round robin series, followed by semi- and petit finals, with a final stage to determine the victor of the trophy and prestigious Crimson Blazer.

Congressional Cup is challenged in a fleet of identical 37-foot Catalina sloops designed specifically for LBYC’s match racing series, which assures an even platform and exciting competition. Racing is held directly off the city’s Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier, where spectators can view the thrilling matches for free, beginning around 11:30 AM each day.
