Newport Yachting Center Manager's Note
To our Guests,
As we wait patiently for Spring to truly show up I would like to take time to share some changes here at the Yachting Center for 2018. Sadly, my right-hand man, Ray LeBlanc, has decided after 20 years to pursue a new opportunity. He has taken a position as General Manager at the Ocean House Marina in Charlestown RI. The whole team here at NYC wishes him all the success and happiness he deserves.
As Ray moves on I am lucky to still have a great and talented team to rely on. Leanne Arsenault will be returning as my office manager with several of her team jumping back in for another season. Luke Peckham will be stepping up filling the role of Assistant Marina manager and returning to help him will be Carter Fisher. I am sure this management team along with the office staff and dock hands will deliver the experience everyone has come to expect here at the Yachting Center.
2018 promises to be an event filled season starting right off with the Return of the Volvo Ocean race to Newport in May. Directly following that in June, is the Newport to Bermuda race and then we are straight into the high season of July and August. Although change is hard sometimes it is also the opportunity that lets people shine. I am truly excited to see what this season will bring. I hope to see everyone on the docks at some point this season as I watch my team grow and succeed.
