Volvo Ocean Race In RI

Good Evening Folks- In case you hadn’t heard, the Volvo Ocean Race is coming to Newport, RI! The lead boats should be finishing in a few hours-

The top two or three are neck and neck after racing all the way from Brazil- pretty intense!

The skipper of the American boat, Charlie Enright, is a RI resident and former housemate of NEIYA race officer Oliver Moore- so there is the iceboat connection!

There is a race village all set up at Fort Adams in Newport- come to town and check it out! And watch the top boats finish live here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZ6y9bqwXaE

Cheers, T

    • The hudson river ice boat club is the custodian of Fed’s boat Jack Frost. If you ever have a chance to see her sail don’t pass it up.

      Rumor has it she will be on display at the wooden boat show in mystic
