What fuels my commitment to OHPRI...
As a Newport’er (at least at heart!) and business owner, I saw the vision that Bart had in creating an education at sea program with a home in Rhode Island. The thought, and even risk, of starting both an education program and ship building project from scratch was simply too good to pass up! Ultimately, I wanted to see folks from all walks of life feel the power of our oceans and hopefully bring awareness to its fragile ecosystem. Fast forward 10 years from when we purchased the hull from the Canadians, I’m thrilled to see the OHPRI sailing and its educational programs in strong demand.
