We love boatbuilding, Beetle Cats, craftspeople and any version of this story where they all meet up. Having the International Yacht Restoration School down the Bay from us in Newport, is quite a boon for the local marine trades around the bustling boating towns and sheds around Rhode Island and New England.  IYRS has fed quite a few talented boatbuilders, composite technicians and systems engineers into the marine trades, and they continue to offer courses that appeal to all ages, all skill sets and all ambitions. Do you have ambitions to learn about boatbuilding and marine systems? If so, read on! The IYRS Open House is right around the corner.  Continue reading

In 1980, a group of New England yachtsmen founded the Classic Yacht Regatta in Newport, Rhode Island, to raise awareness of the glorious classic yachts that were decaying before their eyes. The Museum of Yachting organized the first event, and forty wooden classics came to the starting line. Now more than 30 years old, this annual showcase of vintage yachts is one way IYRS continues the traditions of the Museum of Yachting.
