About the event

The J70 and Melges 24 Classes are all set to feature in this exciting line-up of racing in Miami this winter, kicking off with the Bacardi Invitational Winter Series, before the season finale at the renowned Bacardi Invitational Regatta on March 3-9, 2024

Hosted between Shake-a-Leg-Miami and Coconut Grove Sailing Club, the first race weekend for the Bacardi Invitational Winter Series will be December 16-17, 2023 with the next face-off on January 26-28, 2024.

Post-race, the venerable Bacardi Rum brand, the locally-headquartered ‘king of hospitality’ which has sponsored the Bacardi Cup since its inception, will greet and host competitors each evening, with great food, music and plenty of Bacardi rum. The nightly parties make sure the fun continues long after the finish line, as teams and supporters are welcomed to unwind shore side and recount the day’s racing highs and lows.

The 96th Bacardi Cup and Bacardi Invitational Regatta will complete its final event of the series March 3-9, 2024 with Star Class racing from March 3-9, 2024 and the J70, Melges 24, VX One and Viper 640 Classes racing from March 3-9, 2024.
