The Jean Ribaut cup is a Catboat sailing event in the Port Royal Sound, which used to be a part of the Santa Elena Regatta.

Although the weather has caused some challenges in recent years, there have been some thrilling races. The event has been reduced to just one day, but it is still a must-attend for sailing enthusiasts.

Participation as sailor in this event is inherently dangerous. the racing area is on the intercostal water way (ICW) and the Port Royal Sound Possibly out to Nacigation Mark G23. The ICW is open commercial traffic that has rights of way. Additionally, the courses of the races are, at times distant from shelter or quick rescue in the event of adverse weather conditions or other developments. Going around can be particularly problematic on an ebbing tide, so getting off a shoal, if grounded, must be done quickly to avoid having to wait for the next rising tide.
