Join us for a screening of the documentary Vanishing Sail on Thursday, November 3rd, 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.
This screening ins sponsored by IYRS and Newport Shipyard.
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.
At Newport Shipyard, we're boat people too, and every facet of our operation is geared towards enhancing and promoting life on the water. We have hosted America's Cup events, a Volvo campaign and countless other major regattas and boat shows, along the way becoming the port of call for some of the industry's biggest movers and shakers. So whether you're a mega-yacht needing a refit, a cruiser looking for a summer base, a racer campaigning the regatta circuit or a transient just looking for a great place to tie up, your search is over!
