Beginning Nov. 1, the International Yacht Restoration School’s Restoration Hall will become a place of green education when the school and the Rhode Island Marine Trades Association launch a series of lectures on "Environmental Issues Facing Sailors and the Marine World."

Leading experts will talk about the actions their organizations have taken to help keep the waters clean — from creating approaches to running regattas in an eco-friendly way to removing marine debris. Daniela Abbott, of Sparkman & Stephens, will also talk about green approaches to designing and building today’s boats.

“Those who attend these lectures will come away with a valuable education,” Jay Picotte, curator of the Museum of Yachting and an organizer of the series, said in a statement. “They will gain an understanding of the good work being done and how each and every one of us can help.”
