Yacht school to hold open house

The open house at the International Yacht Restoration School (IYRS) on Saturday, Oct. 20 will give potential students, classic boat enthusiasts, and fans of fine woodworking an opportunity to tour the school's historic campus and learn about IYRS courses.

Current students, instructors, and alumni will be on hand during the event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the school's Newport campus. IYRS has transformed a once-abandoned section of waterfront into a center for maritime education and restoration that has become a valuable training institution for the marine industry.

Prospective students who would like detailed information on course offerings and financial aid are encouraged to schedule an appointment during the open house with Program Associate Jay Picotte at 848-5777, ext. 203 or jpicotte@iyrs.org.
