While sailing around the harbor, Narragansett Bay, and the ocean waters off Castle Hill, you will see a tremendous variety of sailboats and motor yachts from all over the world. With such a proliferation of classic vessels in Newport's harbor, sometimes it seems as if you are in a floating museum of sailing history. If you get an opportunity, get on a boat of any type for an unforgettable view of Newport and the surrounding islands. Sailing in Newport, RI is something that everybody visiting the city of Newport should experience. The best times of the year to sail are in the early fall, when some of the Newport summer crowds have gone and Newport's ocean water is still very warm. Most days in September and even into October, you can go sailing with just a light jacket or sweatshirt and be very comfortable on the water.
Probably one of the best things about sailing in Newport RI is the fact that you will experience a completely different Newport than you will on land. From the water, you have unobstructed views of Newport's coastal mansions and homes, and can imagine Newport the way the first visitors did when they sailed into Newport Harbor for the first time. Out on the water, the din of the crowds, the smells of the restaurants and the busy summer activity of Newport fades away. Under sail in Newport Harbor all you will hear is the occasional flap of a sail or the splash of a wave against the side of the boat.

Sailing in Newport is an experience that every visitor during the warmer months of the year should definitely make time to put on their must-do list.
