Share our Love of Sailing!
Welcome aboard New England’s Premier Private Sailing Charter. Captains Linda Perry Riera and Bob Damiano welcome you aboard Argon for an exhilarating or relaxing sail on Narragansett Bay! The sailing here is some of the best in the world, and would love to share it with you! We offer sightseeing harbor tours aboard our high performance Tartan 4000 Sloop Argon. We’re proud that we’ve turned several first-time sailors into life-long sailing enthusiasts after sailing with us.
Any Sailing Experience Level
Whether you’ve never been on the water before or are an experienced sailor, we’re sure you will have a memorable time. Our captained charters are private for your group only – the whole ship is yours! We encourage our passengers to become part of the crew by participating in the sailing and we are happy to share our experience and teach new sailors some basics along the way. Trim sails, or take the helm or just relax as we enjoy the bay among the racing sloops with Newport Bridge as the backdrop.
Day (or Longer) Sails
If you’re looking to add a quick trip on the water to your visit, we can do 3 to 5 hour day charters. Want something more adventurous? Want to experience a taste of the cruising lifestyle? We can do overnight excursions stopping in one of many beautiful anchorages around the bay. Want a little more adventure? How about a longer overnight trip to Block Island or Cuttyhunk Island. These two destinations offer the possibility of a one-way cruise where you do the return trip the easy way on a Ferry!
We are a couple of sailing geeks who love introducing others to this amazing experience. We tailor the sailing to your comfort and experience, and teach you as much as you want to learn along the way. If you prefer to just sit back, relax and take in the sights, that’s fine too. Please join us for a sail around Narragansett Bay as we share our love of sailing.

Praise from our Passengers
Wedding Anniversary Sail
My husband and I had the best time celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary sailing with Bob and Linda! Thank you both for our making our day so special! It was an amazing experience! We can’t wait to do it again next year!
Took some friends on the sunset cruise and had a blast! Linda and Bob are the nicest folks you’ll ever meet. Some of us wanted to help sail and others just wanted to sit back and enjoy the ride. We went around Boston harbor and they showed us different points of interest, it was so beautiful and peaceful out on the water. They told us about their beautiful boat and its easy to see how passionate they are about sailing and welcomed all of our questions (we were a curious bunch). I found it absolutely thrilling and exhilarating. It’s the first time I completed a “bucket list” item before I knew it should be on the bucket list
Boston from the Harbor
My parents came to visit and were delighted to experience Boston from the Harbor side. We had a three hour trip and got all the way around Spectacle Island. Bob and Linda were lovely and very knowledgeable. We all got to steer and help orient the main sail. My parents are definitely coming back to sail again and some of my friends were interested in a expedition as well.
Excited about sailing
We are back in California and Pia was back on the water this morning in her beginning sailing class. She’s definitely a lot more excited now about sailing. Her time at the wheel with you made a big impression on her. And you and Bob’s teamwork made a big impression on me as well… The two of you were very hospitable and knowledgeable and were very eager to share your boat and your passion for and knowledge of sailing. The two of you would be great sailing instructors, especially for couples.
