Happy National Lighthouse Day from Newport!

August 7, 2013

It was on this day in 1789, that Congress approved an Act for the establishment and support of lighthouse, beacons, buoys and public piers. In Celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the signing of the Act and the commissioning of the first Federal lighthouse, Congress passed a resolution which designated August 7, 1989 as National Lighthouse Day.

One of our favorite things to show our guests while we are sailing aboard our 12 Meter yachts are the lighthouses in Narragansett Bay.  Here are a few of our favorite Newport and Rhode Island Lighthouses!
