Westlawn holds third Mystic MeetPosted on
The Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology held its third annual Mystic Meet July 26 and 27 in Mystic, Conn.
The event allows students and teachers of the distance-learning school to interact face-to-face at the Westlawn home office at Mystic Seaport Museum. Forty-one students and guests from the United States and abroad attended.
Students participated in a host of activities over the two days, and event highlights included a presentation by Rod Johnstone, founder and original designer of sailboat builder J/Boats.
“Rod’s presentation was riveting, and we were honored to have him as a speaker,” said Dave Gerr, Westlawn director, in a statement. “Students enjoyed all the activities and were re-energized and excited by the meet.”
