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.”
