The J Class Regatta in Newport kicks off today with racing continuing everyday through Sunday off Newport’s coast. You can see Ranger and Velsheda glide through Newport Harbor on their way to and from the daily races, or get up close and personal with them at Newport Shipyard. Elegant racing is a part of Newport’s stories history, and with regattas such as this, a glimpse of its future. Two of Newport’s most lauded racing enthusiasts included President Jonh F. Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline. The photo above shows the couple in 1962 taking in a busy harbor, and shows how to watch a regatta in style. 

Pop over to Newport Shipyard this week to see these behemoths in all their glory, and to find out more about the celebratory events surrounding the races!
