Brewer Yacht Yards will help sailing school rebuild

Brewer Yacht Yards in Rhode Island will donate $500 from all new summer slip contracts to support the Edgewood Sailing School in Cranston.

When the 103-year-old Edgewood Yacht Club's clubhouse burned down this year, the sailing school lost most of its gear. Now, relying on private donations and contributions from other programs, the school plans to be back on the water by June.

"Most of our employees and customers participated in a sailing program similar to ESS at some time in their lives. The waterfront is such an important part of what makes Rhode Island unique that we were eager to help the Edgewood Sailing School get back on its feet," said Michael Keyworth, general manager of Brewer Cove Haven Marina in Barrington, in a statement.

Any new customer who signs up for a 2011 summer slip at any of the five Brewer locations in Rhode Island (subject to space availability) will have $500 of the slip payment donated directly to the sailing school.

Brewer Yacht Yards operates 22 full-service marinas and has Rhode Island locations in Barrington, Warwick, North Kingstown and Portsmouth.
