    42' Sailboat "J/42 Affinity" Cruising Monohull Sailing Charter in Newport, Rhode Island

    Had an awesome time with Tony and Nancy celebrating our wedding anniversary. Tony was super responsive, accommodating, worked with our itenary. If you have kids, you cannot find a nicer crew than this. Tony was engaged with our 12 and 7 year old kids the whole trip and we all learned so much about sailing and history. Thank you for a wonderful time!

    42' Sailboat "J/42 Affinity" Cruising Monohull Sailing Charter in Newport, Rhode Island

    Tony and Nancy were lovely and I really enjoyed the sail. They were very knowledgeable and made sure everyone was safe and comfortable. Would love to go back out with them again. Great communication and knew what was happening re: booking and meeting etc, at all times.

    I’m so glad I booked with these two! They were so accommodating with both social distancing guidelines and just generally making us feel comfortable. They had waters, a cooler with ice, and a Bluetooth radio for us to use. We went on a tour of the harbor area and then they took us to a spot where we could swim or go cliff jumping. Would absolutely recommend and will book again!

    We had a fantastic time with Cap. Doug and his first mate (wife) Marcia. They were so attentive and gave us exactly the experience we were hoping for - cruising with a little bit of swimming. 10/10 recommend!

    Experience Newport RI with us! - Charter "Hope San" Sailing Yacht

    We had a really wonderful time with Patrick and Monica. The yacht was lovely and comfortable for the 6 of us. They were very helpful, and willing to adjust the course and speed based on our request. When our friends’ puppy got sea sick and threw up , they cleaned up without any complaint! Lovely conversation, pretty views of the port and all in all a very nice time :)

    Experience Newport RI with us! - Charter "Hope San" Sailing Yacht

    Patrick & Monika were fantastic hosts. Ran perfectly on time, boat was top notch 👌 We absolutely loved our time out and appreciated the hospitality. Would do it over and over again if life allowed and highly recommend! As a side note in the age of Covid, we always felt safe. You could tell the boat was clean and even had sanitizer available.
