The Coastal Living Newport Regatta starts this Friday, July 11-13. This event is THE perfect ramp-up to the National Championship on July 25-27. Here is your chance to warm-up to some fun, fast summer time racing in awesome Newport, Rhode Island.

We need some more players! So far, only three Melges 32s have signed up. We know there are more of you out there —  so what are you waiting for? The Melges 32 is now!

Three great days of fantastic ocean racing is planned with plenty of excellent social activities in the evening. Sail Newport extends a wonderfully warm welcome to the Melges 32 fleet this summer, and looks forward to hosting a terrific event.
