Sail Newport Regattas Heading Towards Another Banner Year
Volunteers Needed - Mark Boat Operation Course - Learn how to score

Building upon the success of the America's Cup World Series here in Newport in 2012, Sail Newport has worked extensively to carry that momentum into 2013.  No one can recall a season with more continental and world championship level events than what 2013 has in store for us.  Sail Newport is playing host to three worlds and two continental championships this summer, all on top of the regular regatta schedule!  The Farr 30 North Americans, Farr 30 Worlds, Byte CII Worlds, J/24 North Amercans, and J/22 Worlds are all on the Sail Newport calendar for this year and Sail Newport is energized to host these exciting events.

These past few years have seen Sail Newport grow tremendously in their capabilities to host world class sailing events.  From the ever popular Newport Regatta to the J/80 Worlds of 2010 to the Optimist New Englands which we have now hosted five times, Sail Newport has set the bar extremely high.  Sail Newport Regattas have become the model for organizations across the United States and we are excited for the prospects this season.  Interested in volunteering?  Email Anderson Reggio and let him know you want to help make 2013 the best season yet!
