Summer has officially begun in Newport this year as several thousands of people attended the 32nd annual Great Chowder Cook-off at Newport Yachting Center on June 1.


Capts. Donald and Natalie Hannon of M/Y Sea Star, docked in Newport for the summer, wandered through the festival and shared these images of the event and winners.


“The chowder was awesome,” Natalie Hannon said. “So many different kinds and different ingredients. There was also seafood chowder. Our favorite was chock full of lobster, crab and scallops. They won second place for best seafood and, of course, our hometown favorite, New Jersey’s Stefanos, won first place for the clam chowder.”


Officially, the winners are:

For best clam chowder, first place went to Stefanos from Long Beach Island, NJ; second place to Pike Place Chowder of Seattle; and third place to Luke’s Lobster of New York City.

For most creative chowder, first place went to Octagon restaurant of Groton, Conn.; second place to The Boat House of Tiverton, R.I.; and third place to The Mooring of Newport.

For best seafood chowder, first place went to Melville Grill of Portsmouth, R.I.; second place went to Rhody Joe’s of Wakefield, R.I.; and third place to StoneRidge of Mystic, Conn.

Most spirited/best booth decorations was awarded to Hammerheads Oyster Bar of Windsor, N.C.
