The 32nd Annual Museum of Yachting Classic Yacht Regatta sponsored by Panerai is set to begin on September 2 and will take place until September 4 in Newport. The regatta will be hosted by the Museum of Yachting.

This 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 2011 after being restored by IYRS students; NY 30 Amorita; NY 50 Spartan, restored by McClave, Philbrick and Giblin; and Sparkman and Stephens designs Black Watch and Bolero.

The weekend’s schedule includes a welcoming reception on Friday evening, September 2; racing on Saturday and Sunday, followed each night by social festivities; and the event’s traditional Classic Yacht Parade that takes place Sunday, beginning at 10:30 am.

Final awards will be presented on Sunday evening, and Sail Newport serves at the Organizing Authority of the event. Event sponsors that have joined title sponsor Officine Parerai include Boothbay Harbor Shipyard and The Hilton Group at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney.

The event is the third and final event in the North American Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge. Online race registration, a Notice of Race, a schedule of events, and other materials can be found at the Museum of Yachting website.
