Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

A short walk from the tender pier brings you to the dock of America's Cup winners and contenders from the 1950s through the 1970s. Step aboard your private vessel and join the helpful crew who stand ready to show you the workings of an America's Cup 12 Meter Yacht. What better place to experience the thrill of America's Cup sailing than here in Newport. Not only is Newport considered the sailing capital of the world, it was also host to the America's Cup for more than 50 years.

Your adventure begins with a warm welcome from your experienced international crew. But within minutes they get down to business and assign you positions onboard. Don't worry about your level of experience: your crew will carefully match you to the job that best suits your level of ability. If you are someone who wants to relax, you may simply enjoy the action from the deck.
Sailing on this magnificent yacht is truly an experience you won't forget. Whether your role involves tacking and jibing, trimming the sail, grinding the winch or simply sharing in the excitement, you are an integral part of the crew and it's a real adrenaline rush!

The course is designed to highlight Newport's coastal scenery and picturesque Narragansett Bay. While sailing, enjoy views of such famous sites as the stately lighthouses, Newport Bridge, and the lavish estates that dominate the landscape, including Hammersmith Farm, Jacqueline Kennedy's family home and the summer White House for JFK.
