Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee has signed legislation establishing the Rhode Island Sailing Events Commission. The commission is charged primarily with identifying and attracting more internationally recognized sailing and marine events to the Ocean State, which has a long history of sailing and a worldwide reputation as a premiere venue for marine and boating events. It will also advise the governor on the feasibility of using Fort Adams State Park as a venue for selecting and serving U.S. Olympic sailors.
