The Yaquina Bay Yacht Club, located at 750 SE Bay Blvd. in Newport, is hosting a variety of speakers in January. The club is interested in promoting what the beautiful Yaquina Bay has to offer, and the public is invited to explore the club and attend these free information sessions. 

The first session is at 5:30 p.m. today (Wednesday) and will feature a representative from the Oregon Boating Foundation, a nonprofit organization in Newport dedicated to getting people out on the water safely by making affordable boating and education opportunities accessible to everyone. The organization’s programs include youth kayak and sailing camps, adult kayak and sailing camps and guided kayak tours in Yaquina Bay.

Next week, on Jan. 12, Paula Miranda, general manager for the Port of Newport, will present an overview of the port district and current projects and events that will affect economic opportunities.

Yacht club members will also be presenting information about the organization, its programs, and opportunities to get involved and support boating education and safety.

These sessions will be held on Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m., with the exception of Jan. 19. Masks will be required.
