The Sail Newport docks are located on the southwest side of Newport Harbor in Fort Adams State Park. While enjoying one of the best views of the Newport Bridge and Sailing Capital of the World, guests of the Sail Newport docks will be steps away from historic Fort Adams, home to the legendary Newport Folk Festival, Jazz Festival, and Volvo Ocean Race stopover. A dinghy ride across the harbor takes you to downtown Newport, or take one of the convenient water taxis.
Sail Newport maintains and manages events for all of the piers except the east side "T" pier, which is reserved for intermodal transport and select commercial vessel pick-up and drop-off services. All touches on the pier must be prearranged with Sail Newport and there is a fee for use.
Transient dockage or nightly dockage is only available if the vessel is part of an event. The east side “T” Pier is reserved for intermodal transport and some quick pick-up and drops for commercial vessels. All commercial touches on the piers must be pre-arranged with Sail Newport and there is a fee for use.
