The Newport Ocean Sailing Association welcomed the 2020-2021 board at its annual meeting yesterday and honored long-time board member, committee chair and 30-year volunteer Doug Campbell for his service to the organization.
Some boating events might be paused this year but the Newport Beach waterfront has been seen coming back to life in recent weeks and leading the charge in boating fun in July is the American Legion Yacht Club’s annual “Old Glory Boat Parade.” The theme of this year’s event is “Honoring Our Frontline Heroes.” The […]
NOSA is greatly saddened to share the loss of long-time sailing advocate and Staff Commodore Daniel Hodge after a valiant three-year fight with cancer. “I regret only knowing Dan for the last few years,” said Commodore Bill Gibbs. “He worked hard for NOSA and N2E, having truly loved this event. He will be missed” As […]

Certainly we are all going through tough times now, and we all regret not being together in a few weeks as intended for the 2020 Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race. Our event was to have many new features, our entry lists were strong and growing, and we were looking forward to having a great race. […]
While here at NOSA we are mourning the loss of our 2020 edition of the Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race, we are also encouraged and inspired to keep our interest and passion in ocean sailing so that when the situation permits we may once return to the sea and enjoy this great sport.
In light of the Corvid 19 virus, the Newport Ocean Racing Association’s Board of Directors unanimously voted to reschedule the 73rd annual Newport to Ensenada Yacht International Race until April 23, 2021.
Like Rod Woods, Dan Rossen is also a seasoned offshore sailor who has entered this year’s 73rd Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race as a double-handed entry. And with his perennial racing partner Richard Whitley he is also a past class winner on their B-32 Problem Child. In fact, Dan claims they have won the DH trophy on the N2E some 7 times, more than half the number of times he has also sailed this race in full-crew mode.
Rod Woods has just a little experience with racing offshore: he reckons on average he raced his Olson 30 over 38 weekends a year for many years, and he has completed some 33 Newport to Ensenada races. So at age 79 he’s ready to throttle back just a little yet still be part of the race action in this year’s 73rd annual NOSA event.
Mark your calendars for Monday, April 27th and extend your slip reservations because Club Náutico Baja of Ensenada has kindly extended an open invitation to all N2E participants for a USA vs MEX fun race around the Bahia with a fiesta and awards to follow in downtown Ensenada sponsored by Doble C Craft Brewery.
