More than 30 teens in 12 boats from international yacht clubs completed their first day of racing in the 41st annual Governor's Cup on Tuesday off the coast of Newport Beach. The Newport Harbor Yacht Club swept its races, compiling six wins in the opening day of round-robin competition. Balboa Yacht Club, the host of the Governor's Cup, came away with four wins. The racing continues today through Saturday, as the young sailors vie for the Cup in the longest-running youth match in the world.

Tom Forquer Though it lacks the number of celebrities, the race for the Governor's Cup this week could be just as exciting as the race for the governor's office. For starters, the 37th annual Governor's Cup U.S. Junior Match Racing Championship that begins Thursday will have 11 teams from three countries and U.S. states competing for their name on a trophy that then-Gov. Ronald Reagan gave the Balboa Yacht Club in 1967. This year, the teams will use a new boat -- the Governor's Cup 21. Previously, the three-person teams raced in Santana 20s on loan from Balboa Yacht Club members.

At the end of this month, I will be announcing Newport Harbor's 20 most interesting boats. While I was gathering information for this year's story I thought it would be fun to do a story on the harbor's two most interesting sailors this year. Limiting this list to two people was not easy, but the more I thought about it, the easier it became. The two sailors who grabbed my attention this year are Jack Cannon and Christian Rosene. Jack, 87, started racing Cal 20s in Newport Beach in 1962, and over the last 50 years, he has consistently remained active.

The 44th annual Governor's Cup embarked Wednesday. If you feel like you missed the start of the first race, I'll help you catch up. One of my favorite features of the Governor's Cup at the Balboa Yacht Club is the introduction of the crews by Andrew Rose at the welcome dinner. Now, to get a better feel on the type of intro and questions asked by Rose, think of Rush Limbaugh and Dr. Phil blending together and coming up with some classic moments. "The youth of the world has assembled for one of the most talented fleets ever brought together here at BYC," Rose said, adding that 13 teams received invitations: a record number of entries.

Top young sailors from around the world will take to the local waves Wednesday at the start of the 45th annual Governor's Cup. Founded in 1967 after a donation by then-Gov. Ronald Reagan, the race is the Balboa Yacht Club's signature regatta. The event pits teams of three sailors — all 20 years old or younger — against each other in match races off the Newport shore. The races progress from rounds of qualifying matches to semifinals and finals. The invitation-only regatta draws crews from Australia, the United Kingdom and Bermuda, among other places.

BALBOA PIER - Sporting a yellow and green spinnaker on its massive sail, the Newport Harbor Yacht Club drifted past the finish line Wednesday. It had handily defeated a boat from the Royal Yachting Assn. out of Great Britain, after the three-member Newport Harbor team lost its first two races. That led to a five-match winning streak out of seven races overall to close Day One of the 45th annual Governor's Cup a few miles off the coast of Balboa Pier. The five wins tied with Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club from New Zealand, San Diego Yacht Club and Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron from Australia for the most wins.

The Governor's Cup 21 was strategically placed this week in front of the Sterling BMW dealership on West Coast Highway. "Someone is sailing with their head out of the boat, what a great idea," I thought as I drove south on West Coast Highway toward Balboa Yacht Club. At the club, I saw something I hadn't seen before: all of the sponsors' banners, flags and decals were presented professionally. The feeling that something special was about to happen overcame me. I quickened my step down to the waterfront.

The second day of the 46th annual Governor's Cup saw a familiar crew jump in front of the pack on Thursday. Defending champion San Diego Yacht Club is the leader with nine wins. Nevin Snow is trying to become the eighth skipper in the history of the Governor's Cup to steer a team to two titles. San Diego Yacht Club went into Thursday tied with three other teams with a 5-1 record during the first flights of round-robin action. San Diego Yacht Club has only lost twice in the first two days of the five-day event, which is considered the oldest youth regatta in the country.

NEWPORT BEACH — The oldest active trophy in international sports was at the same yacht club that plays host to the oldest youth regatta in the U.S. The America's Cup met the Governor's Cup at the Balboa Yacht Club on Friday. Many of the sailors who have competed in the Governor's Cup have gone on to compete in the America's Cup and a couple of them have won it. Someone joked that if you don't win the Governor's Cup as a youngster, you have a good shot later in life in winning one of the most prestigious trophies in the world.
