1988 NOSA Newport Beach, California to Ensenada Polo Shirt

Post by retrorevolve »

Hello, wondering if this polo has any value? It's from the Newport to Ensenada Yacht Race in '88.

Research:
The Newport Ocean Sailing Association (NOSA) annual Yacht Race from Newport Beach, California to Ensenada, Baja, Mexico is a 125-nautical-mile International Yacht Race. First run in 1948, sailors gather each spring in Newport Beach, California, to take part in one of the West Coast's premier regattas.

Excellent condition - no stains or marks, general wear consistent with age, come slight pilling throughout.

Not much here for the general vintage wearer. Yellow isn't a fav color. I have a few polos with embroidered patches like that and they are super uncomfortable to wear because of the rear side of the design.

That said, there may be NOSO or sailing value, but doubt it would be anything significant.
