Registration Comes to a Close
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., April 9, 2019 – The countdown to the 72nd annual Newport to Ensenada Yacht International Race is officially on; there’s two days left to register, and new sponsors to welcomefrom both sides of the border.
For the Newport Ocean Racing Association, proud hosts of this epic sailboat competition; N2E is more than a race. In addition to being an iconic sailing event that’s a must for thousands of racers near and far, and is synonymous with the best of Southern California’s yachting community, the event has a widespread and positive economic impact for both its host cities.
So it’s exciting this year to welcome Newport Beach- based Novamar Insurance, GrinGo App and Ensenada My Soulmate, three companies that help make it easy to race and maximize comfort and fun while exploring Mexico.
Novamar is a marine insurance company that provides online Mexico insurance. GrinGo App offers services and traveler resources so visitors can make the most of opportunities to explore all that Mexico has to offer, while Ensenada My Soulmate is the ultimate guide to our host city.
NOSA is again grateful for its seven-year relationship with fabulous Hotel Coral and Marina and our fabulous Ensenada support team lead by electronics’ manufacturer B&G, Santo Tomas Winery and of
course CANACO and the Proturismo Board.
“NOSA is pleased that our sponsors have offered our racers so much diversity in product choices,” said Mary Bacon, NOSA’s Vice Commodore. “We are so looking forward to our 72nd year of epic racing!”
Locally, N2E’s support system includes Ullman Sails, who will again be donating sails to Ensenada’s junior sailors via Sempra, and for a third year, the crew of Jazz have donated week-long Caribbean cruise with Sail Windjammer to be auctioned during the after-race fiesta with proceeds going to the CAEPA, the school for autistic children.
As always, the City of Newport Beach and the Boating and Waterways department of California Parks have been quite generous in their ongoing support NOSA, as have the Marriott Hotel that will accommodate dignitaries from Ensenada who arrive prior to the race to help NOSA celebrate the start and recognize all those who make the race happen, from the board to the multitude of volunteers.
