All touches on the Pier must be pre-arranged with Sail Newport and there is a fee for use.

There is a small tent located on the south side of the South Alofsin Per during the summer season. This tent is used by the active Sail Newport Youth Program to provide sun/rain cover for young sailing students. On weekdays, a small Opti Class sails from the North side of the South Pier and used the tent on the South Pier during most lunch hours and for a sailing school debrief around 4 pm each day.
Boats under 10' are allowed to tie-up on the south side of the South Pier between the rip-rap and the floating dock only.
There is no full-time dockmaster service on the piers. Groups are expected to determine their own dockage placement for their vessels. Sail Newport will assist with the planning of your vessel dockage plan according to size and draft requirements. Each group and ultimately each boat captain responsibility is to make certain their vessel is docked safely and adequately for the area and anticipated weather.
