America’s Cup Regatta
Join us for an afternoon of racing aboard a classic America’s Cup 12 Meter Yacht as a crew member or spectator. Be part of the action on one of these legendary 68’ yachts as you compete head-to-head aboard these powerful and graceful sailboats in picturesque Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay, the yachting capitol of the east coast.
The sailing fleet consists of American Eagle, Ted Turner’s famous Twelve; Intrepid, legendary two-time winner in 1967 and 1970; Nefertiti, 1962 America’s Cup contender; and Weatherly, 1962 America’s Cup winner.
If you wish to be a part of the crew, the professional sailing crew on each yacht will show you what to do. You’ll practice trimming, jibing, and coming about prior to racing.
Space is limited to 12 crew members on each boat. America’s Cup Charters specializes in working with sailors of all levels. Please note that racers should be 13 years or older.
Sign up early for your choice of boat. There is also the option to book a boat for your group if you are interested. To register, please call 860.572.5339.
Crew shirts are available for $25 each. If you would like to purchase one, please let us know when you register.
