Newport Classic Yacht Regatta presented by Iyrs

August 25th - 26th, 2018


Founded in 1980 by a group of Newport-based classic yacht owners and fans who wanted to preserve and promote the culture of classic yachting, the Newport Classic Yacht Regatta brings together yachts designed and built by some of the greatest American masters. Through the years, these wonderful vessels have been maintained by equally passionate and talented professionals and yacht owners. The Newport Classic Yacht Regatta is the final stage of the North American Circuit of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge. Winners of the Panerai series are awarded, on Sunday evening, at the traditional dinner and awards ceremony.

Newport (Rhode Island, USA) famous for its Mansions and particularly its long history of sailing – for many years host city to the America’s Cup – is one of the leading locations in New England and certainly one of the nation’s cultural centers for classic yachting.
