Jerry Fiat has secured an AC45, a former training boat of America’s Cup defender Oracle Team USA, and will be competing in the 125 nm Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race when it starts in Southern California on April 25. The course record of 5:17:26 was set in 2016 by the MOD70 Orion.
First run in 1948, the 72nd running of the iconic contest now includes a choice of three courses to meet every sailor’s skill level, distance goals, desires, and capabilities: Newport to Ensenada (N2E), Newport to San Diego (N2SD), and Newport to Dana Point (N2DP).
Trophies are awarded to racers in more than 40 classes of cruisers, multihulls, monohulls, ocean and near-shore sailboats of every type.
