2015 has gotten off to a fast start and the summer yachting season is now upon us. Atlass begins every year by participating in the Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show and the Palm Beach International Boat Show, and this year was no different. Both shows were blessed with wonderful weather and strong attendance. As always, it was a pleasure to catch-up with friends, clients and industry leaders.

Our Newport, Rhode Island office reports that the city by the sea was buzzing with excitement from the festivities associated with the Volvo Ocean Race Stopover in early May, and the Stopover Village located across the harbor from our Newport office at Fort Adams. The Volvo Races kick-off a busy summer season in Newport, as the Newport Yacht Charter Show and Transatlantic Race follow in short order.

In early June, Atlass was a regional sponsor of the International Cruising Boat Expo in Essex, CT. Formerly known as TrawlerFest Essex, the International Cruising Boat Expo ran from June 4-7, 2015 and provided an opportunity to attend various seminars and view a diverse lineup of cruising specific vessels.

Up next for Atlass is the International Yacht Restoration School’s annual Summer Gala, of which we have been a sponsor for a number of years. The summer will also see us involved in various other marine related events and functions in Florida and beyond. Atlass will close out the summer as a title sponsor of the Newport Brokerage Boat Show in the middle of September.

Wherever your cruising takes you this season, enjoy your summer and your time on the water. As always, if you have any questions or require anything from us, please do not hesitate to contact your Atlass representative. Happy 4th of July from Atlass Insurance Group!
