howdy from inland MAss


I'm a new sailor and am looking to expand my lake sailing to coastal sailing. I'm tired of fluky winds or no winds on small inland lakes. I sail on an old 12' O'Day Widgeon with my kids.

I've been searching for information about the CT, RI or MA coastal areas with ramps and predictable winds and waves where I can expect to find other small boats sailing. Is there a resource where I can find such information about local sailing grounds in CT, MA or RI? I just don't have time to visit each ramp and find out on my own, its a haul to the coast and with fuel as it is, I don't want to drive to multiple bad choices.
I'm relatively new to this sport and just want to get out on the water and enjoy my time with my kids. Any help or direction would be very appreciated.

Someday, I'd like to do some cruising but my spouse isn't thrilled with the idea. Land locked as we are in CT MA, doesn't provide any visual escape of seas and winds so dink sailing is where I get my fix.
