Board » General Discussion » IRL Race in Newport RI - 12 Meter Charter

Page: 1 2 Next

I've wanted to get out in one of the 12's that charter on Newport Harbor for a while. I know that there are quite a few Solers who live in or near New England.

My proposal would be to charter 2 of the classic 12's sometime next summer. My preference would be Northern Light and Gleam. Both are beautifully restored classics. I've sent an inquiry to the charter company, and will post an update when I get a response.

IS ANYONE INTERRESTED?

The post was originally intended for solers who are from the New England general area, but I think we'd very much welcome participants from farther off. There's plenty to do for family members not interested in sailing. Newport was of course America's vacation destination for anybody who was anybody back in the day.....

I followed up with America's Cup Yacht Charters this week and they actually got back to me. They are interested in chartering to us. Each boat will accomodate 12 sailors and they recommend either a 3 or a 4 hr charter. Cost will be either $175 or $195 per person if we fill both boats...that doesn't include tipping the crew which is recommended.

Is this going to be too expensive for people?
John - Do you have any dates? I am planning on being in Narragansett next summer and would love to join in. I was in contact with ACYC before I had to postpone my trip this year and they seem to be very good. If you can arrange for one of the boats to be Weatherly even better and put me on her.

Hi John. I am very interested, if the dates work. I live in the midwest, but I travel to New England several times a year, and would plan a trip around this event. My yacht club will be celebrating its' 150th anniversary, and as a club officer, that will block some dates. I look forward to hearing more about the dates and plan. I'd be thrilled to sail on any of the 12s, although Intrepid has been my favorite since she was competing in the AC back in the 70's.

OK let's propose some possible dates.....
Between the 14th to the 29th of June that gives us 3 weekends
Or
Between the 7th & 20th of July, that gives us the weekends of 12/13 & 19/20 July.

I'm really open, but my suggestion is that we do it earlier rather than later because the chase of a hurricane screwing up our plans gets greater the further into the summer we go.......

Those traveling the farthest, please give me your preferences as I'd expect your plans will be less flexible.
Oh and I'm not against a weekday charter either - it actually might help in my efforts to get us somewhat of a discount..... I'd love to get a 4 hr charter for the $175 rate.......

So far the requests are for Weatherly & Intrepid.
27th-29th of June is the Mystic Seaport Wooden Boat Show which I want to go to, so the weekend before or the week after would be good. I can also do mid-week.

I think we can use that as an excuse to make the race sometime during the last week of June then....

Abel T Appreciation 2020
In December 1642 after a particularly difficult and rough voyage, the Dutch seafarer and explorer, Abel Tasman, made landfall at a spot he named Staten Landt, believing he had arrived on the coast of Argentina. In fact, he had arrived in modern-day New Zealand. Once again out of love and respect for this brilliant seaman, Sailonline is retracing his route from Tasmania to New Zealand.

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 1
According to Homer, after the Greeks sacked Troy, one of their heroes, Odysseus, had a particularly fateful journey home. Sailonline now invites you to relive his epic tale, journeying in a virtual ancient trireme, modelled on the Hellenic Navy's real live replica Olympia. The legend tells Odysseus was immediately blown off course, north to the land of the Cicones, perhaps making landfall near Cape Maroneais. When the winds abated and after pillaging the people, he made good progress south, undoubtedly rowing some of the way, to exit the Aegean at Cape Maleas, where this virtual first leg ends. Take your seats for 360nm of tragedy!

San Francisco Bay 2020
Many a Sailonline race has started or finished at San Francisco's Golden Gate, but never have we raced inside The Bridge on The Bay. This 27nm sprint corrects that oversight with a fine sight-seeing tour past Alcatraz, Yerba Buena, Brooks and East Marin Island. Our rarely raced Fox 9.50 is your boat of choice. She's a nippy little thing. Enjoy!

A3 2020 Leg 8 - Darwin to Perth
In 2012 Sailonline lost one of its more remarkable racers, Aaron Gage, the creator of the Flash client and all-round awesome human being. In his memory, Tyger created a superb series of races around the island of Australia - the A3 (Agage's Around Australia) Series. This race is Leg 8 of the series - a race of 1860nm in Orange 125ft Catamarans from the laid back north to the booming mining capital and yachting centre of Perth in the south of the state of Western Australia.
