Pila Pexton (Newport, R.I.), a Charter Yacht Specialist for Merle Wood & Associates recognises that “Newport is the sailing capital of the U.S., and with this summer overflowing with events and regattas, even more yacht enthusiasts – both motor and sail – are flocking to the waterfront.”
Yachts participating in this year's show will range from 24 metres to 70 metres in length and will located at the Newport Yachting Centre as well as at adjacent locations on the warterfront. There will also be a plethora of shore-side exhibitions and activities throughout the event including social gatherings as well as a themed 'yacht hop' where the captain and crews of participating yachts dress up in costumes and serve signature cocktails and hors d'oeuvres to their guests.
