Tulane’s Charles Higgins (Sailing coach), Fritz and Dannon will be at a Tulane Reception in Newport RI (the Mooring) at 6 PM / 6:30 ( I think ). If you are in the NE, it would be a great time to show your support for the Wave! Was just at NYYC for their Annual Regatta, Newport is ramping up for the tourist season and will be in full swing by late July. Best alternative would be to take the Ferry from Providence.($15 each way) see Narragansett Bay, avoid the traffic and it docks about a mile from the Mooring Rest. Bicycle cab, taxi or uber if you don’t like to walk.. looking forward to it!

It docks at Perotti Park, a three minute walk to the Moorings. Stay in Newport if you can. You may want to take advantage of the quaint Coastal New England scenery before it's uprooted to Dallas. It is the best pre-season media event anywhere.

Had one vote gone differently in 1982 Penn State and ultimately Notre Dame would have anchored the football bona fides of the Big East Conference. The ACC wouldn't have gone on a scavenging raid and we'd likely still be in CUSA. Thank you St. Johns Georgetown & Villanova.

No doubt. Was just up there in April for my middle son's Navy OCS graduation in April. Slow time of year for them, but the town was still a blast. Good food, bars, scenery, museums.

Is Higgins related to Higgins of Higgins boat fame?

They still have OCS there? Good stuff. It’s not Officer and a Gentleman OCS, rather knife and fork school for doctors and lawyers. My Tulane roommate, a complete landlubber from New Hampshire, went through OCS there after he became a doctor of public health. I used to drive over from the New London Submarine Base to give him grief and to hit the bars with him. He literally did not know which arm to salute with...and retired 25 years later as a Navy Medical Corps captain.

Naval Station Newport has had a recent resurgence: War College, Submarine payload & systems, NAPS, OCS, Naval Supply School, Naval Fire School, Naval law, Marine Corps Systems Tech School (Unaccompanied Jarheads straight out of boot camp and wild as the day is long).
