The Cedar Point Yacht Club is hosting its annual One Design Regatta this weekend.

More than 100 boats took off from the harbor Saturday morning and raced on the Long Island Sound for one of the biggest regattas in the club’s history. Organizers say over 500 sailors were out racing for the day.

The club is also hosting four simultaneous championships for the first time in event history this weekend.

The event is known to draw people from across the country, even the world, including internationally and nationally recognized sailors.

The festivities will end with a barbecue Saturday night and officials say they're expecting over 700 guests.
