One of June’s most anticipated sailing events in the northeast, BACARDI Newport Sailing Week presented by EFG Bank, will return to Newport June 23-25, 2017 for a week filled with exciting sailing and shoreside festivities.
The Newport edition of BACARDI Sailing Week was created based on the successful format that started in Miami. With continued support from BACARDI and EFG Bank, along with dedicated professionals from Newport Yacht Club and Sail Newport along with countless volunteers, BACARDI Newport Sailing Week, now in its seventh year, attracts sailors from all over the country.
Staged at Newport Shipyard, eight one design fleets - Star, Viper 640, J/70, VX One, VX Evos, Diam 24s, A-Cats and classic day racers - will compete in three days of racing on the waters of Narragansett Bay. In addition to racing and many social events planned, there will be an exhibit at Bowen's Wharf and many other fun BACARDI events in bars and establishments throughout the Newport.
