Business Memberships

Business Membership

We work to enrich people’s lives with access to enjoy sailing and Narragansett Bay at affordable rates.

Will you support Sail Newport with a Business Membership? We offer numerous levels of membership to Sail Newport and our public access mission.  Business Member benefits receive varying marketing and branding benefits with each level of support.  Some of the benefits we offer for your business include Sailing Center logo placement opportunities, social media recognition, discounts on sailing programs and ticketed events for your employees and more activations and branding opportunities.

Our Business Members Directory includes marine businesses, investment firms, hotels, retail stores, consultants, and others who want to support Sail Newport.

Business memberships run on the calendar year Jan.-Dec. Memberships renewed and paid by April 1, 2022, will be included on the seasonal member banners.  The banners are displayed at the sailing center and at almost all events.
