This is a terrific way of experiencing sailing in Newport! We were on the Weatherly and loved every minute of our sail. The captain is very knowledgeable about the area and treated us to a interesting tour. Be sure to take a jacket or a...More

We're glad to hear you had such a great experience Kate! Captain George has been sailing the waters of Narragansett Bay for over 30 years. He's a wealth of knowledge about the area, Narragansett Bay, and sailing. Yes, a jacket or something warm is a...More
I have used this service twice once at the last Volvo on a 12 meter American Eagle and this time one of the other boats they offer. Both times were great but being on a boat with only your friends and a captain is a...More

Bob G - it was our pleasure having you charter with us once again. We enjoyed having you and your friends on board. Of course you were on the water during an exciting time in Newport, for the Volvo Ocean Race Newport Stopover. It's amazing...More
We went out this past weekend on America's Cup Charters. It was myself and my daughter (15). First, the boat is clean and appears very well maintained. It also has a unique history. The boat has been in South Africa and in Greece! As for...More

Walter was our skipper on Nefertiti - we were able to help sail the boat, and had a great time discussing Nefertiti's sailing history, sailing lore, Newport stories, etc. There were about a dozen guests on board, plus two other crew in addition to Walter....More

Sounds like it was a memory of a lifetime and reliving it will be like the gift that keeps on giving. Glad you enjoyed your experience!
Went sailing on 12 Meter Nefertiti through America's Cup Charters in Newport last Wednesday. It was a meaningful sail to me, as my grandfather helped build the boat back in the early 1960's at Graves Yacht Yard. In arranging for the sail, Bruce was very...More

DaveT1424 - So happy to hear you found such joy in sailing Neffi. It's always wonderful to have guests on board who have a connection to the boat.
This review is a challenging one because there are factors that affect the experience of a ticketed sail that are beyond anyone's control. The first is obviously the weather. We were blessed with great sun and good wind, so our hopes were high that we...More
We were there for a work outing. 40 people, 5 boats. My boat consisted of my wife and I, a few younger adults, and a few elderly adults. We rode on the Intrepid. 1st mate Johnny greeted our group warmly ad told us we would...More

Glad to hear you enjoyed the full experience of sailing on Intrepid, the fun of participating first hand in racing and the thrill of a fun ride down the Bay. You are right, that there's no need to worry about seasickness. These boats were designed...More
As a long-time sailor, going for a sail on a 12-Meter was always on my bucket list. My wife and I, along with two other couples with considerable sailing experience took a late afternoon 2-hour sail on Nefertiti, the 1958 12-Meter that was narrowly defeated...More
We took a sail at 5 pm for 2 hours. There was a mixed age group from children about 8 years old to folks in their late 60's. The weather and sail were fine. The crewmen Erica and Johnny were friendly, efficient and helpful getting...More
Outstanding experience from making our reservations to checking in for weather issues to dock side registration to sailing aboard the Weatherly. Captain George involved as many of the guests as interested in hoisting the sails and gave us the most memorable highlight of our family...More
