New York Yacht Club Race Week
New York

The New York Yacht Club's Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex begins its second half today, with 93 boats competing in 10 one-design classes.
Race Week's first half hosted over 600 sailors competing in handicap-racing classes. In a unique multiple-segment structure, the regatta now is accommodating several hundred more sailors racing one-design.

"It was a first for us and for sailing," said New York Yacht Club Commodore Charles A . Dana about the format, "but now this event is in its third biennial running and it works very well."

It will serve as the J/44 North Americans, 1D35 East Coast Regional Championship, Mumm 30 North American Championship and J/35 New England Championship. Remaining one-design classes are Farr 40, Farr 395, J/80, J/105, J/120 and Melges 24.

Among the world-class sailors competing will be three-time Star-class Olympic medallist and Rolex Yachtsman of the Year Mark Reynolds of San Diego, California, who will sail aboard the Farr 40 'Le Renard'.
