Classic Yacht Regatta

In 1980, a group of New England yachtsmen founded the Classic Yacht Regatta in Newport to raise awareness of the classic yachts that were decaying before their eyes. The Museum of Yachting organized the first event, and 40 wooden classics came to the starting line. The 2014 regatta and related events will span the Labor Day weekend. All are welcome at the community cocktail party held Saturday, Aug. 30, and the classic yacht parade with viewing areas all around Newport Harbor is on Sunday, August 31.
