Newport Shipyard is proud to announce that nearly EC $17,000 (US $6,300) was raised for Antigua Barbuda Search and Rescue (ABSAR) at the annual Wobbly Race fund-raiser in Antigua, West Indies on February 3, 2017. Newport Shipyard has been sponsoring the Wobbly Race for five years and sends a team down every winter to help organize and host the popular event among super yacht captains and crew.
Ten teams entered this year's annual Wobbly Race, which features a 'Build Your Own Boat (BYOB)' format, where yacht captains and crew build a 'boat' using two sheets of plywood and other supplies. Along with Newport Shipyard employees, volunteers from ABSAR and staff members from Catamaran Club Marina and Cambusa Italian Restaurant were on hand all day selling t-shirts, raffle tickets, food, beverages and supporting the teams.

2016 was a great year at Newport Shipyard and one of the many highlights was the arrival of our new 200MT Marine Travellift. Check out this video, produced by Billy Black photography, that documents the arrival and assembly of our new lift. We have many people to thank, including Senator Jack Reed, who helped us secure funds through the Small Shipyards federal grant to buy the new lift. For the full story, click here.
Mankind and the elements: for some, it's an uncomfortable bond. For others, when weather strikes, inspiration begins. In the second episode of "That's Amazing," the Comanche sailing team, including our own NIck Dana, are featured during their attempt to break the Transatlantic Record. Thank you Great Big Story and The Weather Channel for this awesome sailing footage and coverage.
