Sail on an America’s Cup Yacht
Newport’s long history of hosting the America’s Cup aside, it’s nearly impossible to resist the temptation of getting out onto the impossibly blue waters of Narragansett Bay. Many companies charter cruises on 12-meter sailing yachts, tall and sleek, that have participated in the races. Ask the front desk at Castle Hill Inn for recommendations: options range from two-hour pleasure sails to full-day classes to exhilarating hours spent assisting the crew on one of these elegant, one-masted crafts as they tack around the bay. You can also stay behind on the wharf and watch the fun from a waterside table with a glass of something refreshing.
