Summer Storage at Sail Newport is offered to all actively sailed sailboats for the term of May 1, 2017 to October 15, 2017. Sailboats MUST be kept on working trailers or dollies and we reserve the right to move any vessel at any time, most often for facility maintenance purposes. Sail Newport has available, use of two single-point hoists (fees can be included in your summer storage, membership, or hoist-pack fees), which have capacities of two tons and three tons.  We also have a gin pole available for public use.  We are an owner-operator facility, so be sure to plan to have a capable crew with you for your launching, hauling and rigging needs. 

Any and all questions regarding sailboat storage and/or facilities can be sent to Nick Mauprivez.

Rates are based on length overall x max beam (width). The basic rate is $4.50 sq./ft. for summer, not including any hoist fees. Please see below for specific rates applying to specific one-design classes.

North Dry-sail Area vs. South Dry-sail Area:

Our North Dry-sail Area is the paved, painted lot closest to the Admiral's Pier (our hoist pier).  Our South Dry-sail Area is the gravel and clam-shell area directly behind our Activities Building (aka Main Office).  The South Yard will be organized by group to consolidate traffic to specific areas based on which nights each class's series will sail.  The North Dry-sail Area is reserved for one-design class boat owners who sail regularly in local season-long racing series.  If you have any question as to whether you fall into this category, please call Nick at (401)846-1983 before filling out a contract.  Please be sure to fill out your contract correctly indicating which area you want to store in.  Space is limited in both yards, so take care in completing your storage contract such that you are placed in your desired area.

Please feel free to read over the contract for 2017 and email or call us with any questions: nick.mauprivez@sailnewport.org, (401)846-1983 ext 127
