America's Cup Sailing Experience - (May 15 - October 31)
ACC excels in planning private charters for their clients. For almost forty years, they have provided their clients with beautifully restored and maintained classic America's Cup 12-Meter Class Yachts, with a professional crew and unparralled customer service. They offer an amazing "hands-on" experience to those who choose to participate - the crew welcomes the interaction - though no sailing experience is required. Or guests can sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. Their personalized planning and the majestic 12's provide an unforgettable day on the water.
Well-known as one of the best sailing venues in the United States, Newport, RI was home to the America’s Cup from 1930-1983. After 58 years of racing, the 12 Meter class was retired from use when the United States lost the Cup after 132 years of winning; the longest winning streak in sports history. America’s Cup Charters represents yachts from the premier era of America’s Cup racing: two-time America’s Cup winner US-22 Intrepid (’67 & ’70), the 1962 America’s Cup winner US-l7 Weatherly, 1970 contender Heritage, and the vintage beauties 1937 Gleam and Onawa of 1928. Each year their 12 Meter legends receive structural, mechanical and cosmetic upgrades to keep them in their fighting trim. Their ongoing preservation assures the highest level of aesthetics, historical integrity and performance. Sailing aboard ACC’s graceful 12 meter class sloops, on the protected waters of Narragansett Bay, is a captivating experience and exceptional way to spend time with friends. Leisurely sailing or your own “America’s Cup Racing” experience – you choose.
