166th Annual Regatta

June 12-14, 2020
Newport, RI

North America's oldest annual regatta will feature three great days of racing including the separately scored Around-the-Island Race on Friday, June 14, two awards parties and one fabulous regatta dinner on Saturday night. Competition will take place in IRC/ORC, PHRF and one-design classes, as well as for classic yachts and multihulls.

The New York Yacht Club Annual Regatta was first run on July 17, 1845, on the Hudson River. Nine yachts started the 40-mile race with the 45-ton Cygnet winning with an elapsed time of 5 hour and 26 minutes. The race was run in or near New York City until 1988 when the purchase of Harbour Court in Newport, R.I., gave the Club a waterfront clubhouse from which to run all its regattas. The current format, featuring a round-the-island race on Friday and two days of buoy or navigator-course racing has been in place for more than a decade. Of special note this year is the inclusion of the Swan American Regatta.
