The 34th annual Newport Regatta, hosted by Sail Newport, will feature 15 competing classes on July 7-8. The annual regatta draws entries from across the country, along with teams from Chile and Canada. More than 100 boats have registered and are ready to take to the race courses on Narragansett Bay and the offshore courses off Brenton Point.

A number of the boats will have been on the water during the New York Yacht Club One Design Regatta the previous weekend.
