The lifts will be unavailable during the VOR Stopover, please see this excerpt of a memo from Vinnie at SailNewport:
-We highly recommend that you try to launch your vessels before May 5 (or after the 18th). Once the village is open, entrance to the park and parking vehicles will be a similar procedure to what you would expect on Folk Festival or Jazz Festival weekends.
-If you are unable to plan outside of those dates, please plan accordingly. Bring enough people that the vehicle and trailer can go away as soon as you splash. We may not be able to accommodate even short-term parking for vehicles and trailers.
–Thursday May 14 through Sunday May 17 will be the Pro-AMs, In-Port, and Leg Restart Days. You should absolutely plan to commission outside of these dates, with the expectation that traffic and parking will be something similar to a Patriots game if the Pats only had one narrow road leading to Gillette.
