August 30, 2014 was a beautiful Saturday, and a perfect way to spend it was sharing Narragansett Bay with the Museum of Yachting's Classic Yacht Regatta. Participants included SPARTAN, BLACK WATCH, NORTHERN LIGHT, RUGOSA AND GLEAM, designed by naval architects such as Sparkman & Stephens, Herreshoff and Crane.

A friend kindly allowed the use of his photo (below) taken from the same spot, somewhere between 1905 and 1920.
