Newport/Martha’s Vineyard/Nantucket July 14-21, 2023. Only a few yachts available!

marthas-vineyardTucked in just south of Cape Cod, two beautiful and iconic islands sit in northern Long Island Sound, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. These two islands are distant enough from the bustle of the East Coast to maintain a special and distinct culture and vibe, but close enough that yachts from the mainland can reach and explore them in a week’s charter. With good distances between destinations you’ll get plenty of sailing time, making landfalls exciting and rewarding.

We’ve organized a flotilla out of Newport, RI, itself an iconic bastion of yachting and an extremely interesting destination in its own right. You can read all about the three destinations and the details of our flotilla by downloading our brochure elsewhere on this page.

We have planning parties on the calendar:

  • Saturday, November 19, 2022 – Zoom only – 5:00 p.m. PST (to provide for those 3 hours ahead on the East Coast).
  • Sunday, January 22, 2023 – In-Person at Inspire Sailing 6:30p.m. PST, with remote viewing via Zoom.

If you can’t make either of these, I’ll be happy to get on the phone or Zoom with you at your convenience to give you all the details and answer your questions!

Please RSVP using the form just below! We hope you’ll join us!
