    Andrew is unable to make practice this week (7 May). Allie may be able to come and will fill Andrew’s spot as headsail trimmer if she can make it.

    Mary please meet Billy & Allie at Newport Nautical 5pm to drive on base. We’ll let you know if Allie will be there.

    Great crew practice tonight. The drone we saw was driven by photographer Stephen Cloutier. He posted photos on Facebook as BlockIsland Steve. They are also saved and linked on the Vento Solare website photo page:
