RIYachting.com reports that the Edgewood Sailing School has received a donation of eight 420 sails from the Newport Yacht Club following the fire that destroyed the historic Edgewood Yacht Club in Cranston, Rhode Island.

“This critical first donation of equipment following the fire that destroyed virtually all of our sails, spars, rudders, tillers and other equipment,” said ESS chairman Chris Lee. The donation puts ESS on track for rebuilding the equipment and supplies to assure that adult and youth students can be on the water for the 2011 season.
