Smile New in Narragansett Bay

Hello, Like a couple others who posted here I'm new to sailing, or cruising anyway. Just bought a 30 S2 aft cockpit (9.2A). Very much looking forward to sailing it from Plymouth, Mass, to Providence, Edgewood YC, where we'll have a mooring. That will be in May, hopefully early May.

Would appreciate any tips about navigating out of Plymouth, the canal, Buzzard's bay, Newport, etc. I know you have to be with the current in the canal. Wondering if we can do the trip to Providence in 2 days, one night, or if it requires 2 nights. And if there are any challenges to be aware of.

Eager to hear about any interesting cruising experiences in the area, Narragansett, The islands, LI sound. I just wish to heck it was May already. Champing at the bit here...
