Update: 8/14/18
Pre and Post Worlds
The Hinckley Company, operator of one of the largest full service marinas in Narragansett Bay (and the home to most of the Newport 12s) has made an attractive proposal to provide dockage (both in the water or on the hard) and storage for support boats and containers, as well as general yacht services for all the visiting 12s. The Hinckley facility is approximately 6NM north of Newport’s outer harbor. We are also working on dockage at a close hotel (Gurney’s on Goat Island). Unfortunately, it will be a couple of months before we know what, if anything, they are prepared to do. In addition, the Gurney’s marina, while very convenient to the hotel and downtown Newport, does not have any place for containers or close in trailers.

During the Worlds
SailNewport, the operator of the Ft. Adams marina, has provided an attractive proposal for dockage of the whole Worlds fleet during the World Championship, contact Nick Mauprivez at SailNewport. We are anticipating erecting a regatta tent at the docks for the Worlds. (In addition, they have agreed to extend their preferential rate on a first-come, first-served basis for dockage during the NYYC’s 175th Anniversary Regatta, which immediately follows the Worlds – July 15-20).
