Newport 12 Meter Class

Welcome to the Newport 12 class thread. I am working to promote activity and participation for these boats. I welcome all information, photos, race results or discussion. There are lots of these boats sitting in homes and garages collecting dust that need to be out sailing.

Went through the archives here are some pics of Newport 12s. Had one a few years back. Have thought about buying it back from a friend that has it now.

You should, Manny! We had seven boats racing yesterday at El Dorado Park in Long Beach with several more being built. Mine should be sailing within the next several months

Rich those pics were taken at El Dorado Park. I used to live in Long Beach. The pic of the boat with the Footy is a boat I won in a raffle from the Inland. nautical Society. I moved to Bakersfield about two years ago, I would be sailing alone if I bought the boat back.

Didn't realize that you moved. It would be quite a commute to Long Beach from Bakersfield. Where is that boat now? Is it in the So. Cal. area and would the current owner be interested in joining us?

Who still regularly makes the Newport 12M hull? I'd like to consider building one after I finish my Soling 50. The guys at El Dorado Park are great. I've been coming as often as possible to watch with my 9 month old son. I cant wait for my Soling 50 to be done and move onto another project like one of these. Unfortunately I'm extremely OCD and meticulous with my builds.

M. Sea.,

There are currently two class approved hull suppliers. One is Robert McClung in Idaho and the other is Kay Tillman in Riverside, CA. I can get you contact information for both. I know Mr. Tillman and can put you in touch with him. Mr. McClung was contacted recently by my brother who is building one of his old hulls but it did not sound like he was interested in building a boat. He may have old stock available. Let me know if you would like more information.
