What you can expect

See what it's like to brave the waves by racing a yacht straight out of the America's Cup. This thrilling experience lets you team up with expert sailors aboard some of the world's best racers as they strike out from Newport Harbour to challenge each other on the waters.

A friendly and professional crew meets you aboard a sleek 70-foot (12-m) yacht, where you can get an up-close look at the purpose-built racer and learn about its history. Once you've had a quick safety briefing from your captain and your hosts have shown you the ropes, your team takes charge, grinding and trimming the sails as you pull out of Newport Harbour.

With some newfound knowledge of sailing and race manoeuvres, you line up for the rabbit start and set off on a 2-leg competition, vying against the other yachts to score the fastest time. You can sit back and enjoy the sights or throw yourself into the work of guiding the yacht to victory as you glide in the cool winds of Rhode Island.
