Newport’s Greatest Advocate: Meet Dr. Robin Wallace

Dr. Robin Wallace is much more than a co-founder of Sail Newport, past commodore of the Ida Lewis Yacht Club, and the race committee chair of the New York Yacht Club. He’s also been one of the greatest advocates of Newport, of sailing in Narragansett Bay, and of breaking down the barriers that keep people from enjoying the oceans we all share. Here’s a wonderful short film that Onne van der Wal and Joe Berkeley put together for us.

Enjoy some spectacular footage of sailing in Newport, and share in our celebration of the vision and generosity of Dr. Wallace.
