Sailors from two local yacht clubs will compete in the July 18 to 22 Governor's Cup, one of the nation's oldest and most prestigious regattas for junior competitors.
Michael and Jimmy Madigan and Jack Thompson, who regularly sail as members of the Corona del Mar High School team, will compete for the Newport Harbor Yacht Club.
Ryan Davidson, Brandon Folkman and Gregg Kent, who each attend Newport Harbor High School, will represent the Balboa Yacht Club in the race.
The Governor's Cup is in its 46th year and will take place on afternoons near the Balboa Pier. It is the oldest junior match in the racing championship world, according to a news release from the BYC.
"The round robin format for the event provides spectators with continuous competition as each race features two boats with each team racing against every other team at least once," the release states. "The talented racers will demonstrate a variety of tactics and skills as they race around buoys. It is especially exciting to watch when they round the mark near the beach, with colorful spinnakers flying.
