2 Hour Newport Harbor Sail Aboard Former America's Cup Yacht

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    During this thrilling 2-hour sail on Newport Harbor, get a glimpse into what an America’s Cup competitor feels like when navigating the Rhode Island waters. A variety of departure times is available to suit your schedule. Half an hour prior to your selected time, meet your seasoned captain and crew near the Mooring Restaurant at 1 Sayer’s Wharf.
    After a safety briefing, hop aboard a 70-foot (12-meter) yacht that actually was used in the America’s Cup races. Your captain and crew will assist those who would like to participate in sailing, and no experience is required. Or, simply sit back and soak up the sights including Jamestown Harbor, the Rose Island Lighthouse, the New York Yacht Club, Hammersmith Farm, Fort Adams and Newport Pell Bridge. You’re in good hands either way!
    Enjoy chilled water and juice on board; you’re also welcome to bring your own snacks. After taking a turn at the helm or just admiring Newport from the water, return to the departure point, where your once-in-a-lifetime sailing experience ends.

    Two hours of tranquility accompanied by the melodies of the sea, thrown together with the spray of the sea and the speed of the wind captured by the sails of Heritage. Thank you Capt. Nora and mates Seth and Cameron
