Sail Newport was founded on the day in 1983 we lost the America’s Cup to Australia. Three and a half decades later, we have a thriving sailing center with thousands of sailors, from age 6 and older, using the sailing center for instruction, racing, rentals, and events. On September 8, Sail Newport will host a 35th Anniversary Gala in a tent on the lawn at Fort Adams. Tickets and Tables will be on sale soon.
