What we're about

SI (Sailing Innovation) Newport: Open to all, whether you are a sailboat skipper or considering becoming a sailor, this meetup is the perfect opportunity to discover the passion for Sailing & the ocean. To provide an open source exchange platform for experienced and aspiring sailors, researchers, design thinkers, manufacturers, industry professionals & sailors alike, as well as the general public with an interest in Sailing Technology.

Our mission is to better educate our lifestyles on the open waters by bringing guest speakers from Top Brands, Pro Sailing Teams, Sponsors presenting their latest Products & Gear, Top Sailing Instructors, and network with sailors from the area.

Sailing season may be over, but our learning never ends!


* Education - empower our knowledge in new technology, innovation, techniques, products & services

* Brand Awareness - discover top brands & new undiscovered brands in the market

* Recruitment - looking for crew, employment opportunity, new partnerships, and new drinking buddies

* Networking - empower our community by building friendships & opportunity

We share a passion for the spirit of sailing/boating, so connecting the ocean's environmental ecosystem is crucial to this meetup's educational process...along with the adventures in EAT, DRINK, SAIL of course!
