    The entire week on the water for the Volvo event was a lot of fun. Fortunately, the weather finally cooperated on the last day so we got a good combination of sun and wind. Following the fleet after they rounded the mark South of Gould Island allowed us to see more of the action. Hopefully this event comes back to Newport in the future. Thanks to all who helped support on Vento Solare!
