If there is one thing that brings together this town of Newport, it is undeniably, the sport of sailing. Such was the case with this past weekend when Newport was electric with pride during the Volvo Ocean Race Stopover. On Sunday, the Volvo teams embarked on the next leg of their race, leaving the brisk waters of Narragansett Bay, bound for Cardiff, on the south coast of Whales. It was such a spectacular sight to see our city alive with cheer, curiosity and camaraderie. Fort Adams was glittering with spectators and the water consumed by sailors and boaters alike. A fantastic reminder to truly #lovewhereyoulive …. we sure do!
