This weekend some of New England's most beatuiful classic sailboats will convene in Newport for the Museum of Yachting's annual Classic Yacht Regatta. There are many vantage points around the harbor including Castle Hill, Fort Adams and Jamestown's Fort Weatherill. Vintage 12 meters of America's Cup fame, traditional one-designs and a few modern classics will be on display here in one of the world's most scenic harbors. This regatta is so quntessentially Newport, you just have to take it in. The Museum of Yachting is located at Fort Adams. The fleet assembles Sunday at 10:30 at Goat Island and then cruises along the shore of Newport Harbor.
That is a gorgeous picture! I can imagine that it must be a great event to go and watch.Posted by Lisa REW on Friday, September 17th, 2010 at 5:43pm
