Fort Adams State Park, overlooking breathtaking Newport Harbor, was the stage for the World Match Racing Tour this past week. The match races, which began in Australia in March and will end in Sweden in July, feature a duel between two identically-matched boats for approximately 15-20 minutes at a time. With their own set of rules, the races enthralled our locals and visitors from May 30 - June 4.

We captured all the thrilling sights, just in case you missed it.
