Item Description

Competitive America's Cup racing is the ultimate sailing experience. For an America's Cup racing experience your group is divided into two teams which will be aboard two America's Cup yachts to actively participate in a competitive racing sail. No sailing experience is necessary to enjoy the thrill of an America's Cup race adventure! Racing adventures are perfect for corporate team-building, wedding events, family celebrations, yacht club events, fundraisers and much more. 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/racing 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/racing 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. After practicing a few sailing maneuvers the excitement of racing begins! Suddenly, everyone wants to WIN! Will your team be able to sail your America's Cup boat to victory? The winning team members will each receive an official 12 Meter cap! 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. • Easterner US-18, three time America's Cup competitor, built in 1958. • Heritage US-23, America's Cup challenger and newest in the fleet, built in 1970. This three hour sail can be arranged as a daytime or sunset sail. Each sail accommodates up to 28 people, aboard two yachts. Prizes will be distributed to the winning team members. Chilled soda and water are complimentary. Guests are welcome to bring their own beer, wine, and food. Sails depart from Bowen's, Newport, RI.
