About 80 youths will converge this weekend at Newport Harbor for the fourth annual Corinthian Cup Regatta.

The event, which will feature up to seven races Saturday and Sunday, is sponsored by the Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club of Corona del Mar. All junior sailors from clubs that are part of the Southern California Youth Yacht Racing Assn. are invited to participate, organizers said.

Winners will receive trophies and Olympic-style gold medals.

Special rates have been arranged for regatta participants and their families at the Radisson Hotel near John Wayne Airport, organizers said. For information, call (949) 476-2788 or visit the yacht club website.
