Business Memberships

Business Membership

We work to enrich people’s lives with the ability and access to enjoy sailing and Narragansett Bay.

Will you support Sail Newport with a Business Membership? We offer numerous ways for your company to support Sail Newport and our public access mission while enjoying all the great business branding and opportunities we have to offer!

The Business Membership program provides a generous package of member benefits—including website and sailing center logo placement, a free venue rental for an employee or customer meeting and discounts on sailing programs, ticketed events and more for your employees.

Our Business Members are from all over southern New England and represent not just the marine industry but investment firms, hotels, retail stores, consultants, and others who want to support our mission and help attract more sailing events to Rhode Island.
