Stonington club gets tour of history-making yacht
Stonington — Members of the Stonington Harbor Yacht Club got a tour of the Maiden ocean racing yacht Thursday at the club’s dock.
The Maiden competed with the first all-female crew during the Whitbread Round the World Race, a worldwide yacht race, in 1990. The 58-foot racing yacht has been docking throughout Long Island Sound this month and is in Stonington until Sunday, July 24.
The Maiden was set to sail alongside the club on Thursday but stayed docked due to inclement weather.
