I've been sailing in NGBay for 15 years or so but have only once ventured up to the Providence area. My questions would be Trailer ? Motor ? I started out in the Greenwich Bay section of NGBay at Greenwich Bay Marina by trailering down from Mass in the spring to a slip and back in the fall. There is a good boat ramp in E. Greenwich that puts you in the fairly protected Goddard State Park area of Greenwich Bay.
