The New York Yacht Club has announced dates for this year's Robert H. Tiedemann Classics Regatta, to be held in Newport on June 26th and 27th.

For the first time in its history, this biennial regatta—which had traditionally been held in July—will be the first event in the 2021 Classic Yacht Owners Association's Challenge Series.

"We are excited to get these boats together and activate the classic community earlier in the summer, and there is no better place to kick off the championship series than Newport," says NYYC event chair Jesse Terry.

The CYOA Challenge Series includes a number of regattas throughout the northeast, from Rhode Island to Maine to Massachusetts to Long Island Sound. As with these other events, the Tiedemann Classics Regatta will have divisions for Vintage, Classic, Modern Classic, and Spirit of Tradition boats. One-design divisions may also be offered.

"We'll have all different types of boats out there," adds Terry. "It's always just a beautiful sight to see all these traditional classic boats together."

The Tiedemann Classics Regatta honors the legacy of Robert Tiedemann, remembered for his historic contribution to the preservation of classic yachting and promotion of the 12-meter class. Tiedemann, who passed away in 2006, was known for helping establish Newport as a center for the class's racing activities. He also famously restored two classic 12-meters: Gleam and Northern Light.
