      Edgewood Yacht Club vows to rebuild

      A massive fire destroyed the Cranston clubhouse on Jan. 12, 2011.

      On Sunday, members held the 3rd Annual "Up From the Ashes Frostbite Regatta."{} A massive fire destroyed the Cranston clubhouse on Jan. 12, 2011.

      The regatta commemorates the club's first Sunday of racing after that fire.{} Back then, members were able to race with a lot of help from members of the boating community.

      "The fire was on a Wednesday, and by Sunday the Sunfish community had come together, found enough borrowed boats that we could keep going," said club member Jonathan Howard.

      "Well it's frustrating being without the clubhouse, but the club is still very strong and active, it's really pulled together," said member Jeffrey Lanphear.

      The club's Commodore tells NBC 10 they hope to begin work on the new clubhouse in May.
