The much anticipated J Class Regatta in Newport, RI is upon us. Valsheda and Ranger will be racing inside Narragansett Bay this Wednesday through Sunday with one race per day scheduled to start at 1pm. The course has been set to make viewing these spectacular boats in action easy from several points in both Newport and Jamestown. This will be the first event sailed under JCA rules. In addition to watching the racing, there will also be a J Class Race Village at the Newport Shipyard where viewers will be able to get an up-close look at the boats and learn about the history of the J Class. This is sure to be an event you won’t want to miss. For more information, go to www.jclassnewportregatta.com.
