Classics Compete in MoY Regatta



The Sparkman & Stephens-designed 53’ sloop Sonny, owned by Newport’s own Joe Dockery, once again took away the top prize at the Museum of Yachting (MoY) 35th Annual Classic Yacht Regatta, presented by Officine Panerai. This year’s MoY race will be most remembered as being the first Classic Yacht Regatta to have all four classic New York Yacht Club One Designs racing together. More than 50 classic sailing vessels participated in the final segment of the fifth annual Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge (PCYC) – North American Circuit. The North American Circuit of the PCYC is comprised of the Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta (Marblehead, Mass.), the Opera House Cup (Nantucket, Mass.), and culminates with the MoY Classic Yacht Regatta, held at Fort Adams State Park over Labor Day weekend.
