A fast, thrilling sail on a classic 12M racing yacht. The 1958 winner of the Americas Cup--this is the real thing. Skipper Kevin is a real pro, one of the very best.

Don’t miss this opportunity to sail on a classic 12-Meter America’s Cup classic!! We were fortunate to have a spectacular October day and a perfect breeze. The captain was very personable and shared stories and Newport historic with us.
