NEWPORT, RI (August 15, 2023) – There was no shortage of talent or enthusiasm at the 2023 Safe Harbor Race Weekend, held Friday, August 11 through Sunday, August 13 in Newport, Rhode Island. Sixty seven teams sailing in 11 classes – ORC A, B; PHRF A, B, C; PHRF Performance Cruising A, B, C; IC37 One-Design; and Superyacht A, B – “saw it all” over three days of racing, and it was agreed that that’s what made the third annual event extra memorable and perhaps the most challenging yet.
Drew Freides’ Cape 31 Pacific Yankee won ORC B with some fierce competition - see results here.
