Last Friday, Whisper and crew entertained guests for the start of the Newport Bermuda Race. Chef Chris prepared an array of hors d'oeuvres onboard the 116-foot sloop:

The Summer Salad of arugula and baby romaine was mixed with orange, grapefruit and topped with toasted coconut chips and homemade raspberry-mango vinaigrette. The Tuna Tatake was complete with a wasabi dip and fresh cucumber garnished the plate. A medley of fresh summer vegetables made up the Grilled Kebabs and a sherry soaked Puff Pastry stuffed with spiced herb cheese and topped with mushrooms rounded out the menu.

New England Bound

After a winter of cruising the Caribbean Islands, the 116-foot sloop Whisper and its five-person crew are en route to the Northeast where they will spend the summer season cruising to a number of bustling docks and mellow anchorages along the charming coastline.

From the untouched islands of northern Maine to the quaint seaside towns in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut, New England is a prime summer vacation spot, offering a plethora of itinerary options along the region’s coastline.
