Drawing a Crowd

Newport Regatta/Michele BedigianSpent the holiday weekend in Newport, RI with the kids and had a brief opportunity to steal away some time to draw in town. Who knew the Museum of Yachting “Classic Yacht Regatta” was happening this weekend? Each year this event brings dozens of boats built by some of the greatest American masters (Herreshoff, Sparkman & Stephens) from all over the region to vie for the final stage of the North American Circuit of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge, right in the waters of Narragansett Bay. It was spectacular to see the crowds of boats all sorts of shapes and sizes, nose to nose, enjoying the time. Sail away, sail away! – Michele
