“Fun of the Bay”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Captain Cedar and her crew gave us a great sail on Narragansett Bay. Through fog and tacks - and a couple of very nice controlled jibes, she kept us filled with stories of the sights along the way. My 84 year-old father had a trick at the wheel and it made his day. If you want to sail a classic racing yacht - this is the way to go.

“Simply Amazing”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Wow, what a truly special experience this was. First, the boat (Columbia) is simply a work of art. The experience/ sail was not what we expected, in a good way. The workings of the vessel and the crew that steered her was a sight to be seen. I highly recommend this to anyone (kids too) who is looking for a long lasting memory of Newport. The staff from Meredith (who booked the trip) to the captain to the crew were all professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you!

“Experience of a lifetime”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

What a thrill to sail on an actual America's Cup yacht!! The crew was amazing, engaging every guest on the yacht in conversation and hands on "manning the sheets." I got a turn at the helm sailing under the Pell bridge between Jamestown and Newport. It was an experience I'll never forget.
When in Newport, you must do this, it's sailing at it's best.

“Newport Sail”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Absolutely fantastic sail in the bay with Captain Cedar. She's a wealth of knowledge and an extremely impressive sailor! Nothing beats seeing an area when viewing from the water, and the sights here are really spectacular. We booked through Meredith who was equally fantastic. She responded immediately to all questions I emailed her and met our group and handled the administrative procedures with ease. Strongly recommend booking with this company.

“Great ride in lots of wind!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The wind was blowing steady 20-25 knots so we were only able to go with the jib. Even so it was a great ride. We went out on INTREPID, two time winner of the America's Cup. For someone who has a 15' day sailor this was a real treat.

It is a great way to be out on the water and experience something really, really special.
