The Whitey Harrison Classic is a 20-Mile, 9-Man Outrigger race hosted by Dana Outrigger every August. The race was first run in July of 1971 from Newport to Dana Point Harbor as part of the Harbor’s Opening Ceremonies. Now approaching its 46th Annual, the race now runs from just outside the mouth of Dana Point Harbor to Main Beach in Laguna and back.
