Sail Newport

This not-for-profit organization was founded in 1983 to foster the sport of sailing and to recruit and manage public sailing events. Sail Newport’s mission is to provide public access and opportunities for all ages to learn to sail, improve their skills and participate in sailing events on Narragansett Bay.

The Sail Newport Sailing Center is located at Mid-Park in Fort Adams State Park on the southwest side of Newport Harbor. The facility includes an 8,500 square foot main building with LEED-Compliant and green systems, public restrooms, showers, hoist and ample, free parking.

Located just off the shore next to the Sailing Center are the Admiral’s Piers, where Sail Newport’s 14 – J22 boats berth. With the facility and boats in such close proximity, there’s no simpler way to plan a team retreat.

There is no better way to bond then on a sailboat. Participants are pushed to work together to harness the wind, weather and waves to navigate their boats across the water and to the finish line.

Sail Newport’s 14 – J22 sailboats can be used for a full day or afternoon for your group. During the event your guests will be challenged to work out their plan; make decisions, and work together to make the boat go in one direction. Just as in business, guests will have to create a strategy, use all of the resources of the boat, place the individuals into roles on the boat and communicate effectively to build trust and ultimate success.

Sail Newport provides expert sailors to teach and coach, but the boats are operated by your guests to learn each other’s strengths. The sailing experience can be followed with a casual reception at our waterfront facility. A fun awards ceremony caps off the experience.
