Fleet Race Championship:

The format for Naples 2013 is similar to that of San Francisco in August and October 2012, though with a simplified qualifying round due to a smaller number of teams.   In Naples, HS Racing is added as a new ACWS team, Team Korea has withdrawn, and Oracle Team USA and Artemis are entering one ACWS team instead of two.  Luna Rossa Piranha is entering two teams for this regatta.
