Sailboat Rentals         

Sailboat Rentals

Our sailboat rental fleet consists of 12 J/22s and 2 Rhodes 19s. The rental fleet is available by reservation or on an "as available" basis. We require a driver's license/recognized form of ID and deposit (CC #), to rent.

An annual on-the-water check-out by a member of Sail Newport's staff is required. The check out is typically done right before you rent the first time, and is our chance to see that you have sufficient skills to sail the boat safely and appropriately in the conditions, as well as to familiarize you with our boats and the sailing area. The check-out typically takes 10-20 minutes.  If you have any questions about whether you have the necessary skills to pass the check-out, please give us a call or email me:  a member of the staff would be more than happy to discuss this with you!

Spinnaker gear is available for use on the fleet of J/22s for an additional fee of $40. Renters wishing to use spinnakers must also pass a more comprehensive check-out. Please call for additional information. 

Your reservation guarantees payment unless you cancel at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled rental time, you do not pass the required check-out sail, or if the sailing center staff determines that weather conditions warrant cancellation.
