The Museum of Yachting, formerly located at Fort Adams is no longer. Its holdings are now part of the International Yacht Restoration School (IYRS) on Thames Street in Newport. The 'museum' continues operation in the form of the annual wooden yacht regatta, hosted by IYRS. What is left to view is now in the IYRS library, including a small collection of models, trophies, and extensive collection of boat line drawings. The hours are limited noon to 5 pm, Wed-Fri, and Tues-Sat in the summer.
