We are more than your typical sailing tour. Our sails combine the history of Newport and beautiful Narragansett Bay with the unparalleled, interactive sailing experience only an America’s Cup contender can offer! During your sail the captain and crew will not only offer information about the history of Newport, the yachts and the America’s Cup but they will explain sailing techniques and get, those willing, fully involved in the sailing of the yacht. Help crew grind the winches, hoist the sails, or just enjoy beautiful Narragansett Bay. No sailing experience is necessary to enjoy the thrill of sailing on a piece of America’s Cup history!
Enjoy a sunset cruise on one of Newport's finest yachts! All of our 12 Meters have competed in the America's Cup and include:
• Columbia US-16, first 12 Meter to win the America's Cup, built in 1958.
• Easterner US-18, three time America's Cup competitor, built in 1958.
• Heritage US-23, America's Cup challenger and newest in the fleet, built in 1970.
Each sail accommodates up to 15 people. Chilled soda and water are complimentary. Guests are welcome to bring their own beer, wine, and food. Sails depart from Bowen’s Wharf in the heart of downtown Newport.
As with all of our Charters' events, no sailing experience is necessary to enjoy the thrill of sailing on our America's Cup. With our experienced crews, sailing participation from our guests is welcomed but never required. Take part in the sailing of an America's Cup or just sit back and enjoy the scenic views of Narragansett Bay at sunset.
