Celebrating 75 years of Racing!
The Newport Ocean Sailing Association, hosts of the iconic Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race, will celebrate its 75th year in 2022.
In a November 1947 letter to its 60 new members, NOSA President Cliff Chapman encouraged sailors to help build the organization. “Each of you should know at least one person that is interested in our ideas, so I am enclosing a membership application form with this letter,” he wrote.
Today, membership is included in the racing fees and extended to the army of volunteers who help make the race so successful year after year. Still, the organization and now iconic N2E have long relied on participants to share stories of their racing adventures and encourage new sailing friends to join the fun. Through the years it’s also become a time-honored tradition shared by multiple generations of yacht racing families.
For NOSA’s anniversary year, the Ensenada, San Diego and Dana Point races will take place on April 22, 2022. Don’t forget to tell sailing friends and share the date with all those in the sailing community. You won’t want to miss it!
