*Most races require an entry fee. Some also require membership in a yacht club. We will help you get started. Fill out the form to begin.

There are 23 fleet races throughout the year and many other PHRF races sponsored by all the yacht clubs in Newport Harbor. After each race there is a party and an awards ceremony at the sponsoring yacht club. This is a great way to form a bond and have a laugh with other racers and their crews.
