Long Island Sound Visit

I concurr with a previous comment. LI Sound is fickle as far asa the wind is concerned. Also, the Bayliner crowd can be fierce on a nice weekend.

Block Island on the 4th weekend. be prepared to anchor and avoid at all costs Old Harbor. Nothing there but a bunch of strange ones wearing a ton of gold and pouring hard booze down their throats while trying to impress the girls from Cranston.

Newport is a much better place. Plenty of water, resturants, watering holes etc. Morings are available and inexpensive. Good launch service and a couple of dinghy docks, one free, the other paid. Also a good anchorage at Dutch Issland and Wickford is a delightful place. Try Pleasant Street Wharf in Wickford for transient slips or moorings.
