Sail Newport’s New Facility

Natives of Newport, Rhode Island feel that sailing is as home to this region as whaling is to Nantucket Island or fishing is in Gloucester. Sailing is defined for this region and there are several reasons why. The history of this island includes several notable events such as the America’s Cup, this historic race had started from here in the thirties and continued till 1983.
