2013 Lexus Newport to Ensenada Yacht Race
This 125.5 mile overnight race provides the perfect mix of fun and adventure as racers decide whether to head off-shore for stronger winds or to sail the rhumb line towards the finish. With over 50 trophy categories and numerous classes for monohulls, multihulls, and cruisers, the opportunity to "take home the silver" makes this race appealing to all levels of participants. Whether you are a first-time racer or an experienced pro, this one is for you. Locals enjoy the send off at the Newport Pier the morning of departure.
The race is sandwiched between some fun events - something that all sailors like. Participants will enjoy the "Send-Off" Fiesta at the Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club the night before the race, a long-standing traditional that must be experienced to be believed. The post-race party atmosphere are held Saturday and Sunday at Race Headquarters (Bahia Hotel in Ensenada), followed by a return to Newport Beach
