    46ft Soubise Sailing Catamaran Boat Cruise in Newport, Rhode Island - Fully Booked will be available on September 3

    Claude was friendly, knowledgeable, and very easy to get along with! He took our family (3kids 10-15yrs old) and showed them the ropes, took as out beyond the coast, and made a fantastic day of it- Highly recommend! Only regret would be not going for a longer trip, I think several days, even up to a week to explore the coast and really get the hang of it!
