IRYS Launches 4-Part Environmental Lecture Series

Beginning November 1, the International Yacht Restoration School in Newport, RI will begin its fall lecture series with a theme of “Environmental Issues Facing Sailors and the Marine World.” The series will kick off with a lecture by Sailors for the Sea CEO, Dan Pingaro, and will be followed up with lectures by Rachel Miller of The Rozalia Project on November 15, Daniel Abbot of Sparkman & Stephens (who will speak on “Green Yachting: Eco-Consciousness in Today’s Marine Industry”) and Captain Joe Marini of Clean Bay (who will discuss “Keeping Narragansett Bay Clean”). Each lecture begins at 7:30 p.m. and is $7 or free for IYRS members. If you’re interested in cruising greener and can get to Newport for any of these lectures, they are sure to be worth it.
