Approximately 20 classic wooden-hull racing boats are scheduled to
compete in the 14th Annual Heritage Regatta, planned for 12:30 p.m.
Saturday. The event, held every June, is co-sponsored by the Wooden
Hull Yacht Club and the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum. The race will
trace a course of between six and 16 miles (depending on the wind) in
an area visible between the Newport Beach and Balboa Island piers.
The entire race is expected to take approximately two and 1/2-hours
with an exciting finish at the Museum. Information: (949) 721-8686,
