New England's Yachting Hub
As a yachting destination, Newport is hard to beat. The beautiful harbor, lively regatta circuit, charming town life and central location ensure that "America's sailing capital" lives up to its billing every summer. At the center of the action is Newport Shipyard. With the biggest lifts, cleanest facilities, and the most dock space in town - as well as a full-service yard, ship store, restaurant and fitness center all right on the harbor front - Newport Shipyard has become New England's yachting hub, attracting the best boats on the East Coast
Join us for a and meet and greet with Alexis Andrews, the film maker of the documentary Vanishing Sail, and the Carriacou Sloop Summer Wind, on Wednesday, August 5th, from 5:00-7:00pm at Newport Shipyard prior to the US premiere shown by Rhode Island International Film Festival at Jane Pickens Theatre at 7:30pm.
Alwyn Enoe is one of the last boatbuilders practicing a trade passed down the generations from the original Scottish settlers that arrived in Carriacou in the 19th century. He is approaching his 70s and with no more orders coming in, he decides to build one last sailing sloop with the hope that his sons will continue the trade. More information....
