Bare Boat Sailing from Newport, Rhode Island
On sail now.

From the March 24, 2003 Issue of New York

Ah, the romance of sailing. Melville. The Kennedys. Polo/Ralph Lauren. Charter this boat (and crew) from Newport, Rhode Island’s Bare Boat Sailing, and a weekend cruise will take you to Martha’s Vineyard, stopping overnight at Menemsha Basin, where Jackie O. used to summer. Along the way, drop anchor at Padnaram Harbor. For years, it wasn’t on maps. Sorry, locals didn’t want tourists poking around in the picture-perfect old boat yard.
