Premier visits Rhode Island

Michael Dunkley is visiting Rhode Island this week in the run-up to the Newport Bermuda Race.

The Premier will join Bermuda Tourism Authority members and others local organisations in support of the historical sailing event.

During his trip, Mr Dunkley will meet with representatives of the Mayor of Newport's Office, as well as attending the traditional Commodore's Dinner and inspecting the Bermuda boats, including the Spirit of Bermuda.

The Premier will return on Thursday, one day before the competition begins.

The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is the world's oldest regularly scheduled ocean race.

Founded in 1906, the event will be held for the 50th time this year, with about 190 yachts competing from around the globe.
