photo (1)Welcome to Performance Yacht Racing USA where you can join a team to compete in fantastic yacht races all around the world. Whether your passion  is for inshore or offshore racing we have something for everybody, including corporate team building and race training.

Our high specification J120, Sunset Child, will be based in New York City throughout the 2015 sailing season.  She will be competing in regattas from Newport RI to NYC before heading South this winter to race in Key West Race Week and the Caribbean.

Our race teams are a healthy mix of experienced sailors and those that are new to racing, so each regatta campaign will always entail a training period, even if we have chartered Sunset Child to an existing race team looking to compete in a new location. Also available this year is the opportunity to campaign Sunset Child and compete in a number of regattas with the same crew, making the experience all the more beneficial and enjoyable.
