Looking for a fun way to get out on the water in Newport RI?

What: Newport Yacht Club offers a free Discover Sail Racing Experience as part of the Wednesday night Regatta Series.

Who: You’ll be sail racing with an experienced skipper on the club’s Ensign Class sailboat; a popular, safe and fun full keel sailboat. Up to four people can attend on the same night so it’s great for you and a few friends.

Where/When: The boat leaves Newport Yacht Club’s Long Wharf docks just after 5pm on Wednesdays and returns before sunset. After the race you are welcome to enjoy a burger and a beverage at the club’s “Grill Night” to swap sailing stories with the other sailboat racing participants.

Can I sign up for more than one session?

The Discover Sailboat Racing Experience is designed as an introduction to sailboat racing. We want to expose the fun to as many people as possible so please only sign up for one session. If you would like to continue sailing after your first session we will show you how.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Park in the City of Newport lot ($10) just behind the club on Long Wharf, Newport Rhode Island. While you can park on the street it is limited to 3 hours and could lead to a ticket if you don’t get back in time!

What can/can’t I bring to the event?

This is an adult event. Please no children or pets.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
