    • Newport Yacht Club

     Please join us April 6 at the Newport Yacht Club, Newport RI to hear a presentation from FastForward Composites about the design and construction of the Eagle Class 53 Catamaran with Hybrid Wingsail.  It's a new sail design that allows use of a hard wing sail that can rotate freely while the boat is moored.  A soft sail is hoisted aft of the wing to provide camber and lift.  We will have pizza for NEMA members and a cash bar. 

    Please RSVP to Vice Commodore Peter Vakhutinsky (pvakhutinsky@gmail.com) if you can join us.  The program starts at 4 p.m. April 6 and we should conclude by 6 p.m.
