The International Yacht Restoration School will host open houses in May at its Newport and Bristol, R.I., campuses.

On Wednesday, IYRS will welcome the public to the student workshop inside Restoration Hall on the Newport campus. On May 25, the school will host an open house at its Bristol facility.

Both events will run from 4 to 7 p.m.

IYRS open houses are an opportunity to learn about the school's training programs, as well as the skills in demand in the current marketplace. Attendees also will be able to meet with IYRS instructors and staff, get answers to questions about admissions and financial aid, tour the facilities and see student projects being completed for Launch Day, June 4.

The Newport campus is home to the school's boatbuilding and restoration program. This year, IYRS students are restoring a fleet of Beetle Cats, a Columbia Lifeboat, a Herreshoff 12-1/2 and a Starling Burgess-designed R-Class sloop.
