What you can expect

On a 70-foot 12 Meter class, America’s Cup contender, sail off the coast of Newport in waters that host annual regattas, championships, and parades. Relax while your crew shares the history of the area, or actively participate in the sailing.

Contenders for the America’s Cup have been racing across waves around the world since 1851. Board one of these elite sailing vessels for a guided cruise through the waters around Rhode Island. Spend 2 hours gliding across Narragansett Bay and take in historic sites that include Fort Adams and the Newport Bridge as well as lavish waterfront estates and lighthouses.

As you soak up the scenery, learn the history of the America's Cup in Newport. The captain and crew on board welcome the opportunity to show you the ropes and get you involved in the sailing if you’d like, whether you’re a sailing novice or an old pro. Otherwise, just sit back on deck and feel the cool sea breeze before your return to shore.
