Herreshoffs!
Narragansett Bay

The Herreshoff Manufacturing Company of Bristol, Rhode Island was the premier American yacht builder from 1890 until the Second World War.  They made luxurious steam yachts and enormous America's Cup winning J boats, but Herreshoff's most lasting legacy may be the beautiful and eminently seaworthy small sailboat designs of Nathaniel Herreshoff, examples of which are still built and sailed all over New England and beyond.  The Herreshoff Marine Museum displays many of these, along with a few larger craft, and Cap'n Nat's pioneering (and patented) racing catamaran (hanging from ceiling) built around 1888 and retired after one season of winning every race it was allowed to enter.

More About Narragansett Bay

Narragansett Bay dominates the geography of the tiny state of Rhode Island, extending 25 miles northwards and inland from the Atlantic Ocean right into the heart of its major cities.  It is fed by the watersheds of 3 major rivers: the Blackstone, the Taunton and the Pawtuxet.  Narragansett Bay defines the region's culture, its history, sense of place and quality of life.  The cities of Providence, Newport, Fall River, Warwick and Newport all owe their start to the bay and the opportunities it provided for water power, commercial growth and transportation.  Once badly polluted, the Narragansett Bay has made a tremendous comeback in the last 3 decades as communities all around the bay have revitalized their connection to the bay and taken steps to curb human impact.  Aerial Vr plans a series of panoramas intended to capture the area's unique natural beauty, both from its surface and from the air as well as the vitality and uniqueness of its communities.
