Reviews for Sail Newport
The only game in town for One Design, 2015-04-28
Captain: , Newport, RI (40)

Long-time member and storage user, if you have a one-design keelboat or dinghy, Sail Newport is the only game in town. Excellent facilities for trailered, dry-sailed boats <25ft, with fixed gin pole, 2 and 3 ton cranes, ample dockage, and good storage yard space.

Dockage amenities are sparse and not intended for long-term tie-up, no pump-out, limited electrical connections, public, not private land. Contact for transient or day tie-up at Olofsin piers near the north eastern extreme of Fort Adams State Park.

Extensively renovated for the 2015 Volvo Ocean Race stop-over, new pier and tie-ups may improve dockage features available.

Wonderful Community Sailiing Facility, 2012-11-14
Captain: , Pilots Point (466)

Can't say enough nice things about theses guys and their operation. I joined when I was learning to sail and rented their J-22s. The price is ridiculously fair and the staff especially helpful. Once the shackle came loose as we were lifting the main and we lost the halyard at the top of the mast. A young lean fellow came out to the mooring right away and bare-foot climbed the mast to retireve the halyard. We were underway in a flash.

Sailing a J-22 in Naragansett Bay has got to be one the the most enjoyable ways to spend an afternoon. I'd do some things right and some wrong, go home an re-read my sailing books and then try again. Great way to learn. Sailing the boat back to the mooring ball was an educaton in itself on reading the winds and finding the best sailing angles.

Check them out the next time you're in Newport!

Free temporary docking by the fort / museum of yachting, 2009-06-07
Captain: , Miami, fl (3544)

next to the main facility, they have some floating docks next to teh fort with 3 hours free docking. Convenient to visit the museum.

the sign says that overnight requires prior arrangement.

Comunity Sailing, 2007-11-14
Captain: , Newport, RI (11)

One of the best comunity sailing centers on the east coast if not the country. Very reasonable dry storage available for sailing dinghy's, Catamarans, and smaller keelboats (J-24's, 1D-35, etc). that can be launched by one of the two cranes.

Also the host for the 2007 US Olympic Laser and US Paralympic Sailing Trials
