Let’s go sailing in Newport, Rhode Island! A sail aboard one of our America's Cup 12 Meter yachts combines the fascinating history of Newport with an interactive sailing experience...an experience that is unparalleled in Newport!

What You'll Do

Highlights of our 2-hour sailing cruise include:

  • Rose Island Lighthouse
  • Hammersmith Farm
  • Newport & Jamestown Harbors

  • Newport Bridge

During your sail you may participate in the sailing of the America's Cup yacht or just sit back and enjoy the sights of Newport! The captain and crew will help those wishing to be involved in the sailing - no sailing experience necessary.

Sails available for groups of 8 guests or less. Private charters are available for larger groups.

Insider Tips

There is plenty of space to stow purses, bags and belongings down below on the yacht. Throughout the sail, these items will be accessible by asking for our crews’ assistance. Depending on the wind and weather you may get wet while on board.

Meeting Location

1 Sayer's Wharf, Newport, RI - We meet at the front door of the Mooring Restaurant.

What Should I Bring

While sailing on the waters of Narragansett Bay the temperature and conditions can change. Therefore, we suggest that guests wear layers. And we recommend that you bring the following with you on your sailing experience in Newport:

  • a light sweater, sweatshirt, jacket, or windbreaker
  • pair of pants if sailing in spring or fall
  • athletic shoes – preferably without black soles
  • sunglasses, hat
  • sunscreen

Most importantly don’t forget your camera! You will want to snap away as you enjoy the beauty of Narragansett Bay and the grace of our 12 Meter yachts!

When To Arrive

We will meet for your sail 30 minutes prior to departure in downtown Newport, see confirmation for specific meeting spot. At the meeting spot please check in with our 12 Meter Charters’ representative and sign our participant waiver. Once all guests arrive, we will either take a short, three minute walk to the dock where we will board the yacht or take a five minute launch ride to the yacht.
