The United States Naval Academy (USNA) Off shore Sail Training Squadron (OSTS), aboard five NA-44 foot sailboats, will drop anchor on Friday July 10th in Rockport Harbor to take part in the Rockport Navy Weekend 2015. The midshipmen and their advisors will be joined for the weekend by sailors from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine, the USS Constitution in Boston, Massachusetts and the Navy Band in Newport, Rhode Island.
The Rockport Navy Weekend is hosted by the Rockport Navy Committee, which is comprised of volunteers who have worked to bring the U.S. Navy to Rockport since 2007. The enthusiastic support and generous financial donations of the residents and businesses of Rockport helps make the Rockport Navy Weekend a success. Activities are planned to encourage the entire community to interact with and learn about the US Navy.
