Experience the Excitement

Storefronts throughout Newport will be festooned this spring with banners and posters welcoming the arrival of the Volvo Ocean Race, the world’s premier off-shore sailing competition. Organizers held a kick-off meeting on Feb. 27 at the Newport Marriott, where details were presented on how the business community can participate. One idea is a window-decorating contest. The Olympic-style race village opens May 8, with the boats expected to begin arriving on May 9.
