RI Politician’s Yacht Strikes Rock

A yacht belonging to RI gubernatorial candidate Joe Trillo struck a rock and began taking on water off Charlestown Beach on Sunday, July 9.

The 65′¬†Lady M was apparently blaring loud music as it cruised along the beach in an effort to draw attention to Trillo’s campaign when it hit the rock.

No injuries were reported, but the Charlestown Harbormaster, Safe Sea and the Coast Guard all responded to the scene, first pumping water from the boat then towing it to shore.
