Annual Sailing Day Trip to Stonington, Connecticut

Last week our 12 Meter yachts, Columbia and Heritage, took their annual day trip to Stonington, Connecticut to meet a corporate charter. Our 12 Meter Charters' team left a chilly Newport at sunrise and headed south west. Stonington is just 44 miles from Newport by car but everything takes longer by boat! It took our team 4.5 hours to get to the dock in Stonington. After a quick nap and lunch they were ready for their afternoon of 12 Meter sailing.

For the third year in a row, our guests arrived by coach from the beautiful Ocean House in Watch Hill. After a quick introduction they set off for their afternoon of 12 Meter sailing. Sunny and windy, it was a perfect day! After a wonderful afternoon of sailing in Connecticut, our team headed back to Newport and arrived back to their moorings just after sunset. What a day!
