NEWORT BEACH — The annual Newport Harbor Yacht Club, Ahmanson Cup will return to the bay, Sept. 20 to 21.

The cup has long been a staple on the Southern California yachting calendar for decades. Usually entertaining a spec- trum of grand yachts such as Roy Disney’s 68-foot, Pyewacket, spectacular TP52’s, One Design classes and racer cruisers to as small as 20 feet in length. To enhance the

2014 regatta, several new and fun events have been added to the beloved event. According to Race Chairman Philip Thompson, there are two very unique additions to this year’s regatta. The first is The California Family Cup, which is open to any sailing family. Participants can charter one of the 12 identical Governor 21 class yachts, as used in the international youth match racing series the Governor’s Cup, crewing with three or four teammates. All crew members must be direct family with one exception allowed. One crew must be 18 years old or younger; if you do not have a child of this age in your family you are allowed to tap into any child of this age group. The second item is a Cruising Class,

for the “not so serious” sailor, who owns a cruising yacht and usually cir- cles to Catalina Island and back. The intent is to load all their friends on

SDYC hosts Race for Rady

SAN DIEGO – The 2014 Race for Rady Beach Bash and Regatta will be held at the San Diego Yacht Club, Sept. 20 and 21 as a fundraiser for the Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Rady Children’s Hospital. For two days, sailors and guests can help raise money for the hospital

in a variety of ways.

The Beach Boys cover band, Surf’s Up, will provide the night’s music. On Sunday, Sept. 21, a PHRF Bay Race/Pursuit will be sponsored by San Diego YC.

The Race for Rady is an expansion of the San Diego YC SailFest event that will be held Sept. 20. The regatta, founded in 1996 by Troy Sears, grants Rady Children’s Hospital patients a day on the water as they enjoy a cruise on the bay. Children and their families then dine on hamburger- sand hot dogs and enjoy a range of activities, which include face painting, pony rides and crafts back at the yacht club. The Harbor Patrol boat, a fire engine and police patrol car will also be on site for the kids to explore. More than 60 families from Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego and

board and have a great time. It will be like the super popular “beer can” type races but in the ocean. No spinnakers are allowed and the courses will not be complicated. PHRF racers will have a choice of course type so they can match to what they prefer. The exciting new J70 class is having

their West Coast Championships as part of the regatta. With the 2015 North American championships recently being awarded to San Diego, local J70 sailors will likely be looking to get in some regatta practice. Racing area is primarily off the

Newport Beach pier area. Registration can be found at the Newport Harbor Yacht Club website,
