You'll step from the dock aboard Wishful Thinking and take a seat in the large, comfortable and covered cockpit as we make our way out of Wickford Cove and out onto beautiful Narragansett Bay, where we will raise the sails, turn off the engine and experience the quiet power of the wind. All the while you can relax and watch or participate fully. Take the helm, trim the sails, feel the boat heel and push forward through the water. There's nothing like it! Soon after we will serve lite snacks, cold drinks or maybe lunch as we sail toward our destination enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. Depending on the length of your charter we can sail into Newport Harbor, up into the Upper Bay or under the Jamestown Bridge. Viewing bridges from beneath is a unique and exciting experience. We will sail past other boats, lighthouses, islands and view unique ocean-side residences or we can stop in a local cove for a swim. Charters are two hours long, unless other arrangements are made in advance, after which we will return to port, dock and secure Wishful Thinking. Finally, we will disembark and your group can head into historic Wickford Village to enjoy an ice cream, peruse the local shops or head to dinner. Specialty cruises including; Full Moon, Fireworks and Newport Harbor should be booked well in advance, can be up to 3 hours long and require an additional fee.
Life vests will be provided for adults and are required to be worn by children 12 and under.
I am a Coast Guard licensed captain and an ASA certified sailing instructor who enjoys nothing more than sailing and introducing others to the fun and adventure it offers. I've been sailing for over a decade. Beginning as many do sailing small boats, taking classes at various sailing schools and sailing while away on vacations. Then I took classes that involved spending several days and nights on the water with experienced captains learning seamanship, large boat handling, navigation and safety. I honed my large boat sailing skills first as racing crew aboard a 33 foot racing sloop for several seasons then aboard my own vessels and finally earning my captains license and chartering. My current yacht is Wishful Thinking and she is a 39 foot Hunter sloop that sails like a dream. I continue to sail whenever and wherever I can.

Wickford Village is a wonderful small town, 20 minutes from Newport and walking distance from the marina where Wishful Thinking is docked. There are several gift shops, bistros, cafes and sandwich shops, a pharmacy and a terrific ice cream parlor. Nearly all of our time will be spent aboard Wishful Thinking sailing the bay, viewing Jamestown and Newport islands, unless you have chartered for a specific destination.
