Argo is led by American Jason Carroll and began competing in 2007 in the Melges 32 class. Since then the team has won Melges 32 World Championship twice, the U.S. National Championship twice and the European Championship. The team has also been active in other classes winning the 2013 Viper North American Championship as well as many class victories with their Gunboat 62 Elvis.
Argo acquired its GC 32 in October 2014 and immediately broke the Around Jamestown outright record. Argo finished third in the GC 32 class at Key West Race Week and competed in the Cowes Cup in 2015.
Ever since then the US team has been a regular competitor on the GC32 Racing Tour. In 2016 Carroll’s team rounded off the season on a high with a second place finish overall at Marseille One Design, tied on points with Malizia in the Owner-Driver Championship but winning on countback.
In 2017, Argo was second to Realteam in the overall GC32 Racing Tour championship and second too, this time to Mamma Aiuto! in the Owner-Driver ranking for the year. 2018 saw Carroll’s team win the Owner-Driver championship while finishing fifth overall, a position they repeated the following year.
The Argo team also spends much time campaigning its heavily modified MOD70 trimaran in which earlier this year they won the RORC Caribbean 600, setting a new course record.
