During the Gilded Age, Newport’s merchant sailing class gave way to the rise of recreational sailing and yachting. This legacy carries on to this day, with pleasure craft of all sizes continually exploring the waters off Aquidneck Island. Newport has also provided a destination for competitive races, including the America’s Cup race for 5o years, and still attracts international sailing competitions such as the Volvo Ocean Race to its idyllic waters.
