TRANSIENT BOATERS ON MOORINGS
The Event Village at Fort Adams State Park will be the hub of all activity during the World Series. Sail Newport and Sail to Prevail have worked together to create a special DINGHY DOCK tie up at the Sail to Prevail (formerly Shake A Leg) docks at Sail Newports Admirals Pier (Hoist Pier).
Common misconception! The bay is not shut down to boat traffic. The Safety Zone will be in place by 11:00AM on Thursday and at 1:30 p.m. on Friday through Sunday and stays in effect during race times.
Follow me boats will be on the west and north sides of the race areas in a southerly wind direction to help boaters transit from the north to the south during and between races along the west side of the shipping channel along the Jamestown shore.
Boaters can transit the Bay during racing. The West Passage or Sakonnet River will be the least congested options for boaters wishing to bypass the racing as the East Passage will be very active.
On the water viewing will be limited due to the safety zone.
