12 Meter Charters are more than your typical sailing adventure. Our sails combine the history of Newport and beautiful Narragansett Bay with the unparalleled, interactive sailing experience only an America’s Cup contender can offer! During your sail the captain and crew will not only offer information about the history of Newport, the yachts and the America’s Cup but they will explain sailing techniques and get, those willing, fully involved in the sailing of the yacht. Help crew grind the winches, hoist the sails, or just enjoy beautiful Narragansett Bay. All of our 12 Meters have competed in the America's Cup and include:
• Columbia US-16, first 12 Meter to win the America's Cup, built in 1958.
• Heritage US-23, America's Cup challenger and newest in the fleet, built in 1970.
Sails depart from Bowen's Wharf, Newport, RI.
Includes 2 tickets aboard a 2 hour sail and 2 Crew Gear items incuding t-shirt, cap or polo shirt.
