In 1980, a group of New England yachtsmen founded the Classic Yacht Regatta in Newport, Rhode Island, to raise awareness of the glorious classic yachts that were decaying before their eyes. The Museum of Yachting organized the first event, and forty wooden classics came to the starting line. Now more than 30 years old, this annual showcase of vintage yachts is one way IYRS continues the traditions of the Museum of Yachting.
