The 32nd annual Classic Yacht Regatta, hosted by the Museum of Yachting, will take place Sept. 2-4 in Newport, R.I. The event includes two days of racing and will draw a fleet that stands as a time capsule of classic design — from small traditional one-designs to large, majestic yachts built over a century ago.

Among the notable classics expected on the starting line are: the R-Class sloop Ruweida V, relaunched in June after being restored by IYRS students; NY 30 Amorita; the NY 50 Spartan, restored by McClave, Philbrick & Giblin; and the Sparkman & Stephens designs Black Watch and Bolero.

A schedule of events and other materials can be found at the Museum of Yachting website. For information about the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge, click here.
