Re: Sailing Capital of the........

The northern part of Narraagansett Bay reminds me a bit of the Chessy, in that uncomfortable depths (if not shallows) extend quite a bit from shore. For example, in the Greenwich area or just south of Quonset. In both cases, it can extend almost a mile from shore. However, in the more southern parts of the Bay, you can virtually sail right up to just about anything you can see. Channel nav aids are irrelevant. Since most of us will often sail out of the Bay, depths really become irrelevant, less you remain very near shore. In the Chessy, I've found that nav aids are always very relevant.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
