The Mitchell Columbus Day Regatta is an annual race from Newport to Block Island started by Newport Yacht Club member and past commodore Cliff Mitchell and was named in honor of his father Earl L. Mitchell. Since Cliff’s passing in 2011 the regatta is now being called simply the Mitchell Columbus Day Regatta. The regatta is a relaxed event with an emphasis on fun.  The race is non-spinnaker only and uses a staggered start with starting times based on PHRF time-on-distance. One-design classes are also possible with a minimum of three boats required for a class. First, second, and third place trophies are awarded in each class, and the John E. Rebello team race recognizes the best combination of finishes amongst teams made up of three boats from different classes.
