Yachting Happenings

Check out the latest events in the yachting world.


The International Yacht Restoration School (IYRS) continues its fall lecture series. For this month's lecture, to be held on November 17, captain Tim Murray will discuss the historic 1885 schooner Coronet. From 1905 to 1995 the United Kingdom owned the vessel and it was used in missionary expeditions around the word. The presentation will include photography and artifacts from the vessel, and the Coronet herself is currently at IYRS undergoing restoration. www.iyrs.org
