There is nowhere quite like Miami to deliver the unique blend of glamour sailing, fun, friendship and Bacardi's legendary hospitality and parties. The warm sub-tropical weather in mid-winter is the perfect way to chase away the blues for northern Hemisphere sailors and the fleet line-up is world class. Whether you are a legend of the sport or a weekend enthusiast you are guaranteed phenomenal racing and a very high level of enjoyment.

"We are excited to welcome sailors from across the globe to the Bacardi Winter Series, 97th Bacardi Cup and Bacardi Invitational Regatta," said Eddie Cutillas, Bacardi USA. "The Bacardi events have a rich tradition of excellence and camaraderie, and we are committed to making the 2023/2024 editions the best yet."

The Bacardi Winter Series offers racing for the J/70 and Melges 24, opening with BWS 1 from December 16-17, 2023, and followed up by BWS 2 on January 26-28, 2024. The two Winter Series events lead into the season finale at the Bacardi Cup Invitational Regatta.

The Bacardi Cup Invitational Regatta kicks off with Star Class racing at the iconic 97th Bacardi Cup from March 3-9, 2024. The Bacardi Cup is an event like no other and celebrates a rich history dating back to 1927, making it one of the most highly regarded regattas in the world. Attracting the recognized best in the sport, the Bacardi Cup is unique in uniting a mix of legends, World Champions, Olympians, and pros, who line up against weekend enthusiasts from around the world to contest a daily race of endurance for six days. Spanning more than nine decades, the Bacardi Cup has never made compromises as it brings together the world’s greatest sailors to challenge for glory and the highly coveted podium places. Star sailors the world over aspire to secure their names on the prestigious Bacardi Cup and the Tito Bacardi Cup trophies.

The enduring popularity of the Bacardi Cup Invitational Regatta is driven by guaranteed passion, drama and world class sailing in a diverse range of one-design classes. Their three-day series of short-style racing kicks off on March 7, 2024. Winners are presented with unique keeper trophies, along with special awards to recognize individual achievement.

The Bacardi Cup and Bacardi Invitational Regatta feature a whole host of nightly parties under the palm trees, where sailors can unwind, chat with fellow competitors, talk all-things sailing and share stories from the racetrack.
