Trip Report Eco- friendly vacation: Sailing in Newport, RI

Jump to last reply

For an environmentally friendly, romantic, and fun trip, we tried sailing in the Newport, RI area.
There is a wonderful small company, "Sakonnet Charters" that specializes in fully custom charter sailing aboard Hinckley sailing yachts.

This is not sailing where you are one of 50 people on the boat- it is for couples and small groups. All of the charters offer full gourmet meals, and everything is tailored to your taste! They do charters from 4 hours to a week or more, and at reasonable rates.

You have a captain and a chef/crew at your service. The food is incredible- organic, fresh and local, and better than many 5 star restuarants I have been to. Leea could teach some executive chefs a thing or two!

Captain Robert and Chef/crew Leea (brother-sister team) are friendly and know how to ensure a good time for all.

Truly a wonderful adventure! Highly recommended!
