Sunset Sail and Floating Feast aboard the Schooner Aurora, October 6th 2013, Newport RI
On October 6th, 60 people boarded the Schooner Aurora in Goat Island and headed out for a slightly foggy sunset sail between Aquidneck and Conanicut Islands. While sailing, we heard from seven expert speakers about fishing and oceans, and enjoyed an amazing meal donated through collaboration between fishermen and restaurants.
