Join us on Thursday, January 16th, for a screening of Green Fire Production’s documentary, Ocean Frontiers II – A New England Story for Sustaining the Sea. Doors open at 6, movie starts at 6:30!

Local screening courtesy of Sailors for the Sea, hosted by North Sails Group at the International Yacht Restoration School in Newport, RI. Beer and pretzels provided. 

Off the shores of New England, in a region steeped in old maritime tradition, comes a modern wave of big ships, energy industries, and a changing climate, now testing the limits of an already crowded sea. But in a pioneering trial of far-sighted planning—pushed by blueprints for offshore wind energy—old residents and new are coming together to keep their ocean and livelihoods alive.

New England’s experiences serve as an important milestone for all of us who care about the ocean.

Please RSVP through Eventbrite.
