IYRS holding summer gala next weekend


The International Yacht Restoration School is holding its 13th annual summer gala July 10 with a theme of celebrating the past, present and future.

"There are few schools in America that meld so perfectly the technologies of different eras - from our restoration program where students learn their trade while working on boats from the great designers of the 19th and 20th centuries, to the cutting-edge technology in our marine systems and composites technology programs," IYRS president Terry Nathan said in a statement. "The gala will be a fitting reminder to all our friends of how IYRS has grown and used an effective education model, irrespective of program focus."
