(Newport, RI)- Following up on the wildly successful 2010 Worlds, J/80's will be back in Newport this summer for 3 great events over a two week period. First up is the inaugural Newport edition of Bacardi's international sport boat event Bacardi Newport Sailing Week June 23-26.  On July 8th there will be a one day advanced J/80 speed clinic providing a great opportunity for teams to address any weaknesses from the Bacardi regatta and tune-up for the final event on the Newport mini circuit.  The annual Newport Regatta will take place July 9-10.   All three events will be run from Sail Newport's facilities at Fort Adams Park with storage available enabling competitors to rig once and focus on sailing.
