Fleet 1 to host the East / West Challenge Regatta

On Friday, September 30th, thirty-two of some of the best Harbor 20 sailors from around the country will converge in Newport Beach for the 2016 East / West Challenge Regatta. Fleet 1 has the honor of hosting this annual event which includes sailors from Annapolis (Fleet 5), Hilton Head (Fleet 3), Charlotte Harbor, FL (Fleet 6), Santa Barbara (Fleet 4) and Newport Beach (Fleet 1).

The weekend starts with a Welcome Reception harbor-side next to Newport Harbor Yacht Club. On Saturday, eight teams representing the “East Coast” will compete against eight teams representing the “West Coast” in a fleet race format (lowest combined score wins) over two days with a total of eight races planned. Dinner Saturday evening at the NHYC will follow the racing on day one. Racing will continue on Sunday and the weekend will culminate with an Awards Dinner at Lido Isle Yacht Club.

The sixteen boats are provided by Fleet 1 members, and each boat will have an “Owner’s Rep” participating as a 3rd crew on each boat. The Owner’s Reps get the opportunity to sail with as many as four different teams, providing assistance crewing or local knowledge advice.  There are several spots still open to participate in the regatta as an “Owner’s Rep”. Contact the Event Chair, Nik Froehlich, to get one of these few remaining spots.

As the host of the event, the Fleet 1 Board of Directors have been busy arranging for boats, organizing the social events and the logistics of the regatta. There is always a need for additional help, even if just for a hour or so with setting up or cleaning up for the Friday or Sunday dinners.  If you can help on Friday evening or Sunday evening, please contact Judy Weightman.

For those that would like to mingle and talk sailing with fellow Harbor 20 sailors from other fleets, tickets can be purchased for any (or all) of the three social events / dinners scheduled for Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Fleet 1 members are encouraged to participate in any way they can, and help the Fleet be a good host to our out-of-town guests.

Here is a schedule of events.

Click here to register as a volunteer, or for any of the social events, or as an Owner’s Rep (while there are still spots available).


Here is the schedule for Friday Frolic for the remaining months of 2016.

September 23
October. 14
November 04

Mark these dates on your calendars and plan to participate. For those sailors who sail in the WOW event, race, stay for lunch, and be ready for a Friday Frolic 2pm starting time. Works great!

The starting line will be in the area north of the Newport Harbor Yacht Club and the Dick Sweet will serve as the starting boat.

The Friday Frolic’s are a great time to practice your skills in a more relaxed atmosphere and there is very little Traffic on the Bay. PERFECT

Sign Up for the 2016 Heritage Regatta and Summer Party!

The Summer Party Regatta (aka Heritage Regatta) is an annual Harbor 20 event open to all Fleet 1 Harbor 20 members, and is a fun-filled afternoon of racing on the harbor, followed by live entertainment, food, drinks, awards and social time for the Fleet.

This is not your ordinary Harbor 20 Regatta. Bring friends, family and pets on your boat (pets not allowed at LIYC, must stay on boat), decorate, and compete in a “not so usual” race format. Bring home the coveted Harbor Heritage Perpetual Trophy, not by necessarily being first across the finish line!

Live Entertainment, Traditional Mexican Tacos, Beer, Wine, Margaritas, all on the beach of LIYC.

And, if you participate in the LIYC Friday Night Racing and Barbecue on Aug. 19th, you are invited to keep your boat on the LIYC docks overnight, ready for the Summer Party on Saturday.
