Coronet project

This is a video extra from the film Wood Sails Dreams. In the process of writing, filming, and editing a feature length documentary film, there is some footage that remains unseen and some stories that remain untold. This is one of them. When you walk into the shop, at the back of the International Yacht Restoration School (IYRS) in Newport, RI, and first see the restoration of the sloop Coronet, you are stunned by the scope of the project and by the passion of everyone involved with it.
