The Swan Owners’ Rendezvous 2017 was held in Newport July 27-30th and although the wind gods decided on a northeasterly in July (unheard of except if a hurricane), everyone still had a great time.
Berthon continued their support of this event, with Jennifer Stewart from Berthon USA representing us. It is like ‘old home’ week, as many of the Swans in attendance have been sold by our office!
Jamestown Boat Yard does a great job helping with the event organization, providing staff, launches, and of course, renting CLINGSTONE for our evening events.
CLINGSTONE is an amazing house, situated in the Bay built on a rock formation, with a 360 degree view.
The sunsets, the Folk Festival music drifting our way, and seeing the activity in and out of the Passage is never tough to watch.
The SPIRIT OF SWAN award was presented to Hank Wisker and his Swan 55. First place overall went to Bob and Kristin on board their Swan 60, NAI’A.
