Barry Carrol of US Watercraft will speak about and exhibit new models at the C&C Yachts owners rendezvous, which runs Sept. 19-21 in Newport, R.I.

This will be the third annual gathering for an event that has grown, with about 30 boats attending last year’s rally on Block Island.

The event will feature a mix of sailing, sponsored receptions, yachting news and camaraderie of performance cruisers and racers.

The event will be at Fort Adams, Alofsin Piers, adjacent to the Museum of Yachting.
