Rhode Island



The Herreshoff Classic Rendezvous & Regatta kicks off this Friday in Bristol Harbor. If you're looking to take part in a day of friendly competition on the water, it's not too late to register! Power yachts are welcomed too, as each year the spectating fleet grows larger with boaters looking for a sideline seat to all of the action! Each day, races will be followed by cocktails and a delicious lobster bake with plenty of options that will be sure to leave your stomachs full. 


For those looking to become a bit more enlightened about the rich history of Newport, witness the 19th Century version of "traveling in style" as A Weekend of Coaching returns! With approximately a dozen coaching teams taking part in this triennial event, the public is welcome to the free driving exhibition held on the grounds of The Elms mansion beginning at 10:30 am on Saturday morning.
