rwy36 is on a distinguished road
Stonington is a nice stop for those transiting east out of Fishers Sound. There is a small anchorage on the west side of the channel inside the inner breakwater. A nice dinghy dock is available just south of the Skipper's restaurant (northeast across the harbor from the anchorage) which also has water available. We have been in there on a couple of weekends when the boat traffic rocks things up a bit, but all in all, it's not a bad spot.

I second other the other comments regarding BI Sound weather, waves and fog. Between Block I and Cuttyhunk you're pretty much in open ocean, so keeping an eye to the weather is advisable for all mariners cruising in this area. Stonington is pretty close to Watch Hill Passage so when the weather forecast looks good for BI Sound, you're ready to continue your voyage eastward!

Take care,

Bill
