Overview
Seize the chance to sail aboard an America’s Cup racing yacht and take its helm on this one-of-a-kind sailing trip from Newport. Rather than settling for and chartering a standard yacht; go aboard, meet the crew, and admire sights such as Fort Adams as you cut through the waves. Opt to relax or try sailing with help from your skipper; and enjoy chilled water and juice as you cruise.

As I sat and enjoyed the sail, my husband crewed. Was able to take the helm for a large portion of the time we were sailing. The Captain and crew made the time on the water a tranquil experience. The weather was a little cool but blue skies and the crisp air had the feel of

Being on the water is always a memorizing experience! We enjoyed wind, speed and spray! The staff were always entertaining, informative, and engaging. Best to bring layers of clothing, as it can get chilly on the water, and best not to wear white pants since there is a fair

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
