RI Yacht Club to Host Sailing & Marine Center
October 22, 2014
Providence Journal: Thanks to a $1.5 million anonymous gift, Moses Brown School will establish a Sailing and Marine Education Center at the Edgewood Yacht Club in Cranston, [RI] school officials said in a news release Friday [Oct. 17].
The new center will provide a waterfront classroom for marine education and a home for the school’s sailing team. It will also accelerate MB TRIPs, which stands for Moses Brown Travel, Research and Immersion Programs.
Edgewood Yacht Club, which was destroyed by fire in 2011, has invited Moses Brown and Brown University to become partners in rebuilding.
