Sailing with a maximum of 13 guests, she is comfortable, fast and fun! A varnished cockpit table is available on which to place light food and drink, there is a CD stereo with iPod interface and a small head (restroom) guests may use.
Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay are two of the most beautiful bodies of water in the world. They also offer some of the best sailing conditions in the United States! No where else can one so easily experience superb sailing conditions while viewing stunning seaside estates, famous yachts and other visually arresting sights set against the backdrop of a colonial town and beautiful rocky shoreline.
On a typical sail, we cruise through Newport Harbor, into Narragansett Bay and along the shoreline of Newport’s Ocean Drive. The scenery is spectacular and the sailing is usually first rate. Sights include Goat Island, Fort Adams, Hammersmith Farm and Clingstone an iconic home perched on a rocky outcropping. Although this is not a sailing tour where we talk constantly, our captains and crew all know the history of the harbor and bay and will point out the highlights.
The captain and crew are more than happy to answer guests’ questions, get them involved in sailing the boat or just ensuring a relaxing sail.
