Went over to Newport this morning to check out the 2023 Ocean Race boats. These hydrofoil boats are as far removed from my kind of sailing as a wood-and-canvas biplane is from the Dragon spacecraft.
Behind the 21st century sailboats is the Oliver Hazard Perry, a sailing school ship and the official flagship and tall ship ambassador of Rhode Island. 1812 meets 2023. I was volunteering on his ship and then along came Covid.
