Info

The New England Science & Sailing Foundation (NESS) is kicking off the summer season with their annual NESS Fest on Saturday, June 22 (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.). This free event will feature fun activities including sailing, powerboat tours, kayaking, and stand up paddle boarding. This event is open to the public. Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian."NESS Fest is a great opportunity for us to give back to our community. It's a full day of fun that's all about getting people out on the water, whether it be through kayaking, SUPing, sailing, or on a powerboat. We're also looking forward to some fun land-based events this year!"
 
The Haven Brothers food truck from Providence will be onsite with food available for purchase. Matt Beaudoin from Mystic Knotwork will be at the event teaching attendees how to tie either a survival bracelet for their wrists or a small lanyard for their boat shackles. Supplies will be provided at no cost, though a donation to NESS would be appreciated. Mystic Knotwork is a 61-year-old family operation in Mystic most famous for their sailor bracelets, though they also make decorative knots for homes, weddings, and events.
 
NESS Fest participants are welcome to enjoy ocean adventure activities, tour the facilities, meet the staff, and learn more about NESS's summer programs. No prior experience in water sports is necessary and participants will be supervised by trained and experienced NESS staff members.

The Borough will be busy on Saturday as the town's Summer Stroll and the La Grua Center's Stonington Sounds Music Festival will also be taking place.
