The 2022 Season is upon us!
Enjoy fleet racing and the benefits of sailing and racing–without the headaches of boat ownership!
Newport YC is host to the series’, and runs the actual racing in the waters between Rose and Goat Islands. One to three races around the “cans” are run each night weather permitting:
- Tuesdays: Spinnaker 2022 Series 1 May 31 – July 12 and Series 2 July 19 – August 30
- Wednesdays: Non-spinnaker 2022 Series 1 June 1 – July 13 and Series 2 July 20 – August 31
As with any Sail Newport rental, the skipper (or anyone who will be driving on a race night) must take a check-out as well as a short, written, rules test before the first night of racing, which is included in the charter fee. There must be a minimum of three sailors on board for Tuesday night (spinnaker) racing, and two for Wednesday night (non-spinnaker). You must be a member of Sail Newport to charter for either the spring or summer series, and we encourage all skippers to encourage their crew to become members as well!
The Notice of Race, Sailing Instructions and online racing registration are posted on the Newport YC Racing website.
