After a long winter, warm weather has finally come to New England. And we’re about to hit the road in the Rhode Yacht for a taste of the summer season across New England – experiencing sailing, music, food and, of course, fun.

Our first stop will be at the Newport to Bermuda Race starting line at Castle Hill Inn in Newport, Rhode Island. Sunbrella has deep roots in the sailing world with fabrics ideal for durable enclosures or upholstery that can withstand the rigors of the sea. Join us on the lawn of this historic inn to watch the race kick off and wish the skippers fair winds and flowing seas for their journey to the Caribbean.

Want to see just how durable Sunbrella fabric is? Take part in our cleaning demonstration at the race. While sailors battle sun, salt and wind, your home, camper or boat faces the toughest of stains from red wine, chocolate sauce, ketchup and more. We dare you to stain cushions covered with Sunbrella to see that cleaning even the most stubborn stains is a snap.

In July, our journey continues with two more sailing races: the Vineyard Cup and the Newport Folk Fest. And the tour continues in August, September and October; see the full list of stops below.

Come out and visit the Rhode Yacht as we tour the region. There’s certain to be fun and frolics, but nothing the Rhode Yacht can’t handle.
