Candy Store Cup Regatta


Every year Newport holds what is called the Candy Store Cup Regatta.  It is not really a race; more like a showcase for large super-yacht sail boats greater than 90 feet.  The huge boats are fun to watch.  The boat shown here, “Meteor”, is 170 feet long.  The two masts are in the range of 150 to 200 feet high.
