Providence Business News Editor Mark Murphy joins Rhode Island Public Radio's Dave Fallon for our weekly business segment, The Bottom Line.

This week Mark and Dave chat with RI Department of Environmental Management Director Janet Coit about the return of the Volvo Ocean Race in 2018.

 RIPR's Dave Fallon and PBN Editor Mark Murphy discuss plans for the 2018 Volvo Ocean Race stopover in Newport with DEM Director Janet Coit.

Coit says race organizers plan to make Fort Adams the only U.S. stopover in the race for a second time after receiving strong reviews from sailors and spectators.

There is no word yet on whether an America's Cup event will return to Newport, although Coit says improvements to the pier at Fort Adams have helped make it an attractive location for tall ships and major sailing events.
