Wednesday, May 09, 2018
Sail Newport's Education Chair Donna Kelly joined GoLocalProv News Editor Kate Nagle on GoLocal LIVE to highlight the Exploration Zone at the Volvo Ocean Race's Newport Stopover Race Village.
“The Exploration Zone is a legacy of family forts and this will be our third Exploration Zone. This year we went with a theme, we titled it ‘One Ocean Exploration Zone’ and the question is really ‘what does it mean to you?’ So what does ‘One Ocean’ mean to you,” said Kelly.
