The Newport Ocean Sailing Association announces that online registration is open for the 75th Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race. The iconic coastal race will start off the Balboa Pier on April 28, 2023.

For 2023, NOSA is re-focusing on its distance racing heritage and will have only two courses; the traditional Newport to Ensenada International 125-mile overnight race and the California Coastal 90-mile San Diego course.

Also new for this year will be a new online entry system driven by Regatta Network, making registration and race management easier than before. Racing classes will include, ORR, PHRF, ULDB, Cruising (Spinnaker and non-Spinnaker), and Multihulls.

"After last year's exhilarating race, which saw almost all of the course records fall and a record-breaking first-to-finish time of just over 7 hours by Manouch Moshayedi's monohull RIO 100, next year's fleet of close to 200 racing boats will again push the speed boundaries for this spring sprint for the border and beyond," states NOSA's Commodore Mary Bacon.

For those looking to brush up on new requirements, night sailing techniques, provisioning, weather, and crew tips for a fun, safe and trophy-winning race, in-person and Zoom seminars will be offered in January and February. The race will once again feature YB Race Tracking.

Up for grabs for a third year is the Storm Trysail Club Team Racing Trophy. This prestigious bluewater sailing organization is offering a trophy for any three-boat team who signs up and has the lowest combined finish score. Joining the competition is easy - just find two fellow skippers with whom you have something in common (alma mater, dock mates, professions, number of ex-wives, similar boat names, etc.), pick an inspired team name, and register online. The only caveat is that boats must be racing N2E, but not in the same class. One of the three teams must race in another division.

Lastly, the N2E Store is open online, and new and previous race gear can be ordered and shipped across the country. Now, it's time to get ready and race!
