We are very pleased to announce that the 37th annual Newport Classic Yacht Regatta Hosted by IYRS will be held in town on the campus of IYRS School of Technology & Trades.

It seems fitting that the regatta’s move is to the historic campus of IYRS – home to the school that helps preserve the craft of boatbuilding and restoration and is also the base of the restoration of the 133’ 1885 schooner yacht Coronet.

Classics are welcome to make reservations for dockage at IYRS or Casey’s Marina through IYRS. Dockage will also still be available at the Alofsin Piers through Sail Newport.


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 (CYR) 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 CYR is the final stage of the North American Circuit of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge. Winners of the Panerai series are awarded at the ceremony on Sunday evening, Sep 4.
