Sunday NY Times – Tall Ships in Newport

NY Times - TSRI - by Bill Cunningham

Today’s NY Times society page had a pretty amazing spread of photos of the Tall Ships event in Newport. Figures that that this would happen after I left as the American Sail Training Association executive director! :-( Unfortunately, there wasn’t a mention of the ASTA who is the organization which created this phenomenon over 30 years ago right in Newport.

Cities host these types of events for just this reason. It reinforces Newport’s brand as a maritime heritage tourism destination and it provides great national media. And if you are a Vanderbilt or Whitney, it’s a great excuse to organize a family reunion!
