In early May, the brand-new Sailing Museum opened its doors to the public for the first time. The first floor of the museum is divided into six thematic areas: Wind & Water; The Making of a Sailor: Mental; The Making of a Sailor: Physical; Teamwork; Competition; and Legends of Sailing, National Sailing Hall of Fame & America’s Cup Hall of Fame. The second floor is home to additional exhibits and a private lounge honoring Hall of Famers. If you are sailing or driving to Newport this summer, put The Sailing Museum on your “must see” list.
