The 2014 Lipton Cup Regatta was the biggest yet, with 30 entries into the two day event. All classes had challenging, yet fun competition.
The 2014 Lipton Cup Team Challenge was taken away from Halifax River Yacht Club by the North Florida Cruising Club. The trophy will reside in Jacksonville until their planned defense in 2015.

Fun loving sailors should now reserve April 17th, 18th and 19th, 2015. There will be two races on Saturday located just off the beach at the end of Flagler Avenue, with a final race on Sunday.
This is the one sailing event in the southeastern United States where you have a chance to have your name engraved for posterity on a historic Lipton Cup Trophy. Most sailors know about the America's Cup and the several America's Cup challenges by Sir Thomas Lipton. They also know that he donated trophies in a number of locations around the world with the intent of promoting the sport of sailing. Such a historic trophy sits in the trophy case at Smyrna Yacht Club and there is a place on the trophy base for you and the name of your boat, if you can compete and win. The competition will be strong, but the reward is priceless.
This is just the “sailing” part. Smyrna Yacht Club arranges social events throughout the weekend including the Skybox party overlooking the race course.
