On a beautiful summer’s evening, guests gathered at Belle Mer to celebrate the C. Thomas Clagett, Jr. Memorial Clinic and Regatta at the annual Sail into Summer fundraiser. One hundred and fifty guests enjoyed taking in a glorious sunset on Narragansett Bay, while raising funds for the Clagett and the Clagett Boat Grant Program. In 2016, the program awarded a Sonar to the Y-Knot program in Lake George, NY. This year, due to the generosity of supporters and the Newman’s Own Foundation challenge grant, the Clagett will achieve its goal of purchasing two boats, which will be granted to a community sailing program for use by disabled sailors.

“We are thrilled that, through the support of our guests and supporters, we are able to announce we can purchase two 2.4mR boats for the Clagett Boat Grant Program,” said Clagett co-founder and president Judy McLennan.

The 15th C.Thomas Clagett, Jr. Memorial Clinic and Regatta will be held at Sail Newport in Fort Adams State Park from June 22 -25.
