The 2021 Erika Cup Yacht Race has been cancelled.

A Thrilling and Sophisticated Offshore Regatta Loved by Both Yachtsmen From All Over the World and the People of Gamagori

An event featuring the charming and blazing fast Class 5 boats, it is full of thrills and emotion, a must for sea-faring lovers!

The Erika Cup is one of the largest-scale yacht races in Japan, and is very popular not only among yachtsmen but also among the people of Gamagori. The event was first begun to commemorate Erika, a hand-made yacht which left port at Tokoname City, Aichi Prefecture in July 1981 and returned to port at Gamagori in April 1986, four years and nine months later, having visited 25 countries and more than 100 ports all over the world.
