Thanksgiving Meals for Newporters in Need

It’s that time of year; time for family, friends and feasting. Feasting for some, but others in our community are struggling. We are organizing the yachting community to raise funds for our neighbors in need. We have three events planned: one at the Fastnet Pub, 1 Broadway (Friday, Nov. 4 from 6:00-7:30pm) and two at the IYAC, 536 Thames Street (Friday, Nov. 11 from 6-8pm & Thursday, Nov. 17 from 6-8pm).

Also on Wednesday Nov 16, Carrie and Ann will be at the Marine Industry Drinks at the Clarke Cooke House if you would like to give them a donation there.

If you would like to participate, we would love your help! Cash donations will be used to purchase fresh food. Each meal for a family of 4 is estimated to be about $40. Suggested donation is $20, but anything would be great. And if you only have time, we could use that too.

On November 11th and 17th at the IYAC we will also be collecting non-perishable food for Martin Luther King Center and gently used coats, hats, scarves and gloves for Seaman’s Church Institute. Both Martin Luther King and Seaman’s Church are already collecting and you can drop off any time.

Thanksgiving Meal Menu
It’s important to us to give healthy meals, so our menu will be full of real food: Turkey, Potatoes for Mashing, Fresh Carrots and Onions, Green Beans and Corn, Corn Bread, Cranberries, Apple/Cranberry Juice, Milk, and Pumpkin/Apple Pie

A Mexican team, inexperienced and led by self-made millionaire Ramon Carlin, defied all odds and won the inaugural race, known today as the Volvo Ocean Race.

Newport Bermuda Race 2016

  • Newport Shipyard

Few tests of blue-water seamanship are as iconic as the 635-mile Newport Bermuda Race. The 2016 race (starting on June 17) is the 50th  and also marks the 90th anniversary of the partnership of the organizers, the Cruising Club of America and Royal Bermuda Yacht Club. Here is an overview of the race with links to helpful articles on this website.

Sailed almost entirely out of sight of land, the Bermuda Race was created in 1906 by Thomas Fleming Day, a yachting writer who believed in the then-radical idea that amateur sailors in small yachts could sail safely in blue water.  The colorful Tom Day was a pioneer in the sport of long-distance racing.  In the 1920s the race inspired Britain’s Fastnet Race and Royal Ocean Racing Club, and also the freshwater Bayview-Mackinac Race on Lake Huron.
