Sail for Hope 2019

Sail for Hope 2019

2019 will mark the 18th anniversary of the original Sail for Pride. In 2001, in the wake of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and in the skies over Pennsylvania, a few local sailing enthusiasts scrambled to organize a regatta to honor and support those affected. 

The first Sail For Pride Regatta rallied over 180 boats and $110,000 designated for charities to support the NYFD firefighters, police and the victims of the attacks and their families.

The display of patriotism and generosity on and off the water made a lasting impression in the sailing community. After the inaugural year, the organizers retired the name Sail for Pride, but continued the event as Sail For Hope, reflecting the Rhode Island state motto and focuses on the mission to supporting local non-profit endeavors. Charities supported over the years have included RI Red Cross, Seamen's Church Institute, Newport Harbormaster's Emergency Equipment Fund, local public high school sailing teams, US Olympic Sailing Trials and many more.  Those funds reached outside Rhode Island in 2005 when over $100,000 was raised after Hurricane Katrina's and send to New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.

Little did they realize the impact the Vanderbilt Cup would have on American racing culture.

Newport SUP Cup 2019 - PADDLE FOR ACCESS

Saturday, August 17, 2019 • Newport, Rhode Island

The 2nd annual Paddle for Access hosted by Clean Ocean Access is a 3 mile or 6 mile paddle (SUP) around Goat Island in Newport, RI. Register online at RaceWire.

The annual Paddle for Access event celebrates our ongoing work protect and preserve shoreline access. Clean water and healthy oceans are critical to achieving our mission to take action today so future generations can enjoy ocean activities. Public access to the shoreline is a prerequisite to these goals because i we can’t access the coastline, we most certainly cannot work to protect it nor enjoy favorite ocean activities. Limited access to the shoreline is how the organization started in 2006, and to this day it is the most important, yet least understood issue that we work on. The Paddle for Access event celebrates our work to monitor all 50 rights-of-way across Aquidneck Island and ensure everyone has access to the shoreline. The event also sheds light on many other  issues that impact public access to the shoreline, including erosion, sea-level rise, invasive species and long term shoreline planning.

The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is the oldest regularly scheduled ocean race, one of very few international distance races, and (with the Transpac Race) one of just two of the world’s regularly scheduled races held almost entirely out of sight of land.  Founded in 1906, the Bermuda Race will be held for the 51st time in 2018.

Its purpose was stated in 1923 by Cruising Club of America Commodore Herbert L. Stone:  “In order to encourage the designing, building, and sailing of small seaworthy yachts, to make popular cruising upon deep water, and to develop in the amateur sailor a love of true seamanship, and to give opportunity to become proficient in the art of navigation. . . .”
