Newport RI; “small town – big heart”

It was pretty surreal to return to Newport three years on for the return of the Volvo Ocean Race.
This time around, my adventures were thanks to Argo Group, one of the sponsors for the local heroes of Vestas 11th Hour Racing, headed by Charlie Enright and Mark Towill, with another local, Nick Dana on board. Nick perfectly describes Newport RI as “small town – big heart”.
Hope you enjoy the adventures…
