REQUIREMENT TO RENT A BOAT - DEMONSTRATE YOU CAN SAIL
An annual on-the-water check-out by a member of Sail Newport's staff is required. The check out is typically done right before you rent the first time each season, and is our chance to see that you have sufficient skills to sail the boat safely and appropriately in the conditions, as well as to familiarize you with our boats and the sailing area. 

The check-out typically takes 10-20 minutes.  If you have any questions about whether you have the necessary skills to pass the check-out, please give us a call:  a member of the staff would be more than happy to discuss this with you!

SPINNAKER SAILING
Spinnaker gear is available for use on the fleet of J/22s for an additional fee of $50. Renters wishing to use spinnakers must also pass a more comprehensive check-out. Please call 401-849-8385 or email for additional information.  

CANCELLATION POLICY
Your payment via credit card guarantees your reservation.  If you do not show up your card will be charged -  unless:
  • you cancel at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled rental time
  • you do not pass the required check-out sail, or,
  • if the Sail Newport staff determines that weather conditions warrant cancellation.

WHAT IF YOU DON'T PASS THE CHECK-OUT?
Our certified instructors will work with you to determine if you need a refresher course or more training which is available at Sail Newport.
