Let's Go Sailing @ Sail Newport!

J/22 Sail Newport
(Newport, RI)- After a long winter, made longer by the pandemic, Sail Newport's J/22 sailboats are on the water and ready to rent! We are thankful to have the "green light" from the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management to resume rentals, but of course, within guidelines to keep our staff and customers safe.

Here’s how it will work: 
  • Per the State of Rhode Island DEM regulations, all individuals for a boat rental must be from the same household and be R.I. residents (Unless you can document your required 14-day Quarantine per R.I Exec. Order. This will likely only be until June 1 - bear with us!)
  • The boats are available seven days a week for three-hour rentals by appointment only
  • (Absolutely no walk-ins at this time)
  • We have twelve boats in the water
  • Make an appointment by calling the Sail Newport Dock Office at (401) 849-8385
  • All rentals must be paid in full at the time of the reservation, we will take your card number over the telephone
  • If we are unable to provide a boat because of weather conditions, or, if the sailor does not pass a checkout, we will issue a refund
Please know that the rental start times will be a bit different than previous seasons. We appreciate your cooperation, patience and understanding as we vary arrival times to respect social distancing.

Full House J/22 Racing Series: June 9 - June 30
Sail Newport will be hosting a "household-only" J/22 spinnaker series on Tuesday nights and non-spinnaker series on Wednesday nights during the month of June in our fleet of J/22s to kick-off the 2020 regatta season. Racing will begin at 6pm between Rose and Goat Island with multiple races planned each night.  We anticipate a full fleet of 12 boats for each series, so sign up today to save your spot!

Narragansett Bay is our greatest natural resource, and there’s no better way to enjoy the water than sailing a J/22 on a beautiful day.
