About America's Cup Charters
America's Cup Charters is Newport, RI's premier sailing company chartering the legends of the America's Cup trophy. We’ve been chartering the America's Cup legends since 1986. We also offer daily ticketed sails for individuals. Our fleet includes the illustrious Intrepid - the two time winner of the coveted America's Cup trophy, Weatherly - winner of the America's Cup and also one of the few yachts listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Heritage - 1970 Cup Contender & IOR Racer, and Onawa, the timeless beauty vintage 12M. This can be an interactive hands-on experience, no sailing experience necessary, or a casual relaxing sail. Each yacht has a captain and two crew members on board to interact with our guests. We give people the chance to feel what it's like to be part of an America's Cup experience. The protected waters and predictable breezes of Narragansett Bay make for a comfortable racing and cruising experience.

We were aboard the Weatherly US-17. Built in 1958 and in nice shape. Kind, knowledgeable and courteous crew. Our 2 hr tour took us across to Jamestown, then north under the Newport Bridge to the middle of Gould Island, then we doubled back along a similar course in the
