Richard Mille is excited to announce the second edition of the Richard Mille Cup.
Following the successful inaugural event last year, the 2024 Cup will run from 2nd to 15th June, with a fleet of around 12 historic yachts racing in stages down the English Channel.


The spectacular regatta will once again be a showcase of for the finest vintage yachts and schooners afloat, competing for the prestigious Richard Mille Cup. Richard Mille says, “This is the ideal environment to admire the magnificence and beauty of these classic yachts from the pre-war era and the involvement of the Yacht Clubs allows owners and admirers alike to come together in the true spirit of the event.”

As in the previous year, the Cup is sure to attract classic boat aficionados, collectors and hundreds of onlookers, as exciting inshore races are staged at the four host ports – Falmouth, Dartmouth, Cowes and Le Havre. The vintage sailing yachts will also undertake testing passage races between the four ports, including two overnight races from Dartmouth to Cowes and Cowes to Le Havre.

Organizer and classic yacht expert William Collier comments: “The combination of day and passage races with the opportunity to sail and visit iconic locations is unique to the Richard Mille Cup and has proven very popular with owners of some of the finest yachts in the world. We are looking forward to welcoming them back and hosting this unique sporting event.”

The Richard Mille Cup celebrates the glory of yachting design and build from a bygone era. Those who witness the regatta will be able to feast their eyes on some of the most stunning sailing yachts ever created, all of them maintained and crewed in an authentic classic style.

The Richard Mille Cup sets up a true racing environment in which the yachts can thrive and perform as they were meant to. The fleet will stop at four historic yacht clubs in England and France – the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club in Falmouth, the Royal Dart Yacht Club in Dartmouth, the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes and finally the Société des Régates du Havre in Le Havre, France.

The yachts, dating from the end of the 19th century to the late 1930s, will compete in Schooner and Cutter categories, and will include some of the great designs including Mariquita (1911), Moonbeam III (1903) and Moonbeam IV (1920).

Specially commissioned for the inaugural regatta, the meter-high Richard Mille Cup itself was designed by Garrard, jewelers to the British Royal Family for the last 300 years and the designer of the America’s Cup some 170 years ago.

The ongoing Richard Mille Cup is testament to the brand’s commitment to excellence and its dedication to supporting the maritime world. The inaugural Richard Mille Cup marked a new era in classic competitive sailing and the second edition will build on these foundations with another thrilling and captivating spectacle for all sailing enthusiasts.
