Why We Love Sailing in Newport, Rhode Island and Surrounding Areas

Newport, Rhode Island and the surrounding waters are a rewarding area to sail for both newcomers and advanced sailors alike. Here's a closer look at conditions in the area, as well as some of the destinations you're likely to visit.

Getting to Know Sailing Conditions in the Newport, RI Sailing Area

Yacht Charter USA, Newport

Rhode Island is located in an area of prevailing westerlies, which can provide some surprises even for experienced sailors. Although the summer weather is typically warm and only a little breezy, daily and monthly averages for both temperatures and precipitation can vary from expectations.

  • It's not uncommon for mornings to begin chilly and overcast, only to burst into bright & warm sunshine by noon, for an epic sailing day.
  • It's also not uncommon for late afternoon squalls to develop with little warning, making it advisable to head for shelter quickly. These storms are typically brief, but can be accompanied by rough seas and blustery winds.
  • Sailing areas are rigorously surveyed and well marked and navigation is relatively simple. This is a popular and well traveled sailing area.
  • Narragansett Bay and surrounding waters have a variety of common currents, including rotary currents, tidal currents, and reversing currents. None in this area are overly severe. NOAA hosts a Current Predictions chart that is very helpful and local sources, including all marinas, will have information also.

The best advice: be prepared for all eventualities. The Newport area is a rewarding location to develop your bareboat sailing skills and test yourself against the local conditions and elements.

Yacht Charter USA, Newport

Newport is one of the world's great yachting destinations. This is one of the capitals of yachting in America, with a long history of nautical adventure and enjoyment. For true enthusiasts, this is the home of the Yacht Restoration School, the Museum of Yachting at Fort Adams, and the fabled Newport Yacht Club. These attractions make for an entertaining day exploring the history, pageantry, and drama of yachting.

The city is also home to fine food, wonderful family restaurants, and a lively bar & nightlife scene. You'll want to spend more than one night enjoying the high season options for entertainment and fun.

Jamestown is a lovely little village tucked into a scenic nook of Conanicut Island. Come ashore to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, including golf, hiking, biking, and watching wildlife in the nearby sanctuary. Mackerel Cove Beach and Fort Wethergill State Park have sandy beaches, rock climbing, fishing, and scuba diving. In August, the island hosts several unique sailing events, and there are numerous dining & entertainment options at all times.

Bristol is another town with a long and storied history as a sailing mecca. Take a stroll through quaint streets and beautiful parks. Save time to visit the America's Cup Museum to learn more about the world's premier sailing competition. You'll also delight in the local restaurants' commitment to regional seafood cuisine.

Prudence Island is a seven-mile island right in the middle of Narragansett Bay. Its central location makes it a popular sailing destination. Roughly half the island is set aside as a nature preserve, with options for sightseeing, hiking, and exploring. Potter Cove is a gorgeous refuge, especially if the weather takes an unexpected turn for the worse. There are no restaurants or bars, so bring your entertainment with you.

Wickford is the quintessential Rhode Island fishing village, a delightful little community that is scenic and welcoming. The harbor is busy, but there are nearby coves and beaches to explore. At night during the high season, the town bustles with dining & entertainment options amid a wonderfully festive atmosphere.

DAY 4: Sail to Menemsha

There are so many interesting destinations in and around Narragansett Bay, it's great to take your time and sample them without being in a rush. Historic Bristol, pristine Block Island and Potter's Cove, and much more. Sail by day and celebrate by night!
