Background
The Newport Ocean Sailing Association (NOSA) was founded in 1947 to organize a boat race from Newport Beach, California to Ensenada, Mexico. The first 125-nautical mile race took place on April 23, 1948 and was called The Governor's Cup. The race was renamed the Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race and grew to include 20 boat classes. In 1983, the race set the record as the world's largest international yacht race, with a record 675 boats entering the competition. NOSA also organizes several other yacht races in Southern California, and supports many youth sailing programs and organizations in the area.
