Newport, Rhode Island, for many years, was home to the series of yacht races for the America's Cup. The waters off Newport have been a key sailing venue for the New York Yacht Club (NYYC) since the beginning of its history. In addition to its Manhattan headquarters, located inland, the NYYC maintains "Harbour Court", a clubhouse opened in 1988 on the water in Newport.
