Race Course The Race Course starts at the bridge at the west end of Lido Island and proceeds east around the southern side of Lido Island. At the eastern end of Lido Island, the course abruptly turns to the north (port) towards the PCH Bridge. Coxswains beware, many crews have missed this turn in years past. Once around the turn, crews are directed to race through the right-most arch of the PCH Bridge into Upper Newport Bay. No passing is allowed under the bridge. Approximately 400m past the PCH bridge the course turns to the right (starboard), straightens out for 500m, then turns to the left (port) with 200m to go to the finish line at NAC. Row past the finish line and do not turn around until past the final buoy. See map below. A detailed map will be available at the Aquatic Center. Total Distance: 2.7 miles (4,400 m)."  Newport Beach
Newport Boat Show 
April. "The Big Yacht Show... With easier access, better parking and a collection of great waterfront restaurants, the Lido Marina Village is the perfect location for a big-boat show. Enjoy a great day and great food while touring some of the finest yachts in the world. There’s no other show like it. And there’s no better place to see the newest models from the world’s finest boat builders.... The Newport Boat Show is returning to Lido Marina Village to celebrate its 32nd year as the West’s premier big-boat in-water show. And this year’s show is going to be better than ever, with the largest display of big boats and yachts west of Ft. Lauderdale. Plus, a whole host of exhibitors will be on hand in the water to showcase products and services that make owning and operating a big boat more enjoyable.... No other place in Newport has the deep water and easy access that Lido Marina Village has. That’s why the 32nd annual Newport Boat Show is returning to Lido. With more big boat slips, no hassle move-in and set up, this is the perfect place to show big boats to eager buyers.... This year the Newport Boat Show will have free parking and shuttle from the Newport Tech Center on Superior Ave. and Industrial Way in Newport Beach."  Irvine, Newport Beach
Newport Harbor Annual Christmas Boat Parade 
"Join over a million viewers as you watch beautifully decorated yachts, boats, kayaks and canoes sail along the harbor in the 96th Annual Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade. Presenting Sponsor Simple Green, Official Sponsors the Daily Pilot and Janes Capital Partners, and the Commodores Club of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce invite you to sail to the theme of 'A Winter Waterland.' As Newport Beach’s Christmas Card to the world, the boat parade will set the harbor ablaze for five consecutive nights, beginning Wednesday, December 15 and ending Sunday, December 19, 2004. The parade starts off Collins Island at 6:30 pm and finishes at the same site at approximately 8:30 pm on Wednesday and Thursday, and 9:00 pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. (Two separate routes are run on different evenings.) Beautiful multi-million dollar yachts, kayaks, canoes and other small boats will light up the harbor as a dazzling array of holiday lights and music fill the air at the Christmas Boat Parade. Many of the boats will be richly decorated with animated Christmas scenes accompanied by music and costumed carolers. With this year’s theme, participants are also encouraged to decorate their boats taking into account the unique celebration of the holiday season in Southern California. Some boat owners in the past have spent over $50,000 to decorate their vessels for the event. The Christmas floats will wind their way some 14 miles around the harbor to give viewers in restaurants, yacht clubs, on public beaches, and in private homes a incredible sight that has delighted millions of people for 95 years."  Newport Beach
