|paulk||Cuttyhunk or Block could work for us. Noank is a tad shallow, but Stonington might be an alternative to that. Newport is so big and busy that a low-key (?) event like this might be lost in the hubub. People could hit Newport before or after a Sailnet RDV, if they wanted. The New Bedford waterfront has also benefitted from a huge makeover. Friends who went there last summer were quite impressed, not only by the visiting USCG Barque Eagle, but by the facilities, shops and activities available within a short walking distance.|

Boston harbor islands moorings
Supposedly the moorings are coming back this year. We sail out of Hingham and liked the moorings for a lazy day on the water. At the end of last season a few were back in.

|smallboatlover||no sakkonet river doesn't really have places to go on shore really other then fogland beach and ect. the bridge is a go don't worry about it. there isn't any closures as of now and the mast high i wanna say it 65 ft or 75 something like that. bristol would be a stretch but i could probally do that with my motor boat. my 14' motor boat. but i would only be able to stay a few hours before i had to start my trip back. but that would be a bad idea if the wind kickd up i would be screwed.|

|rmeador||I believe last year the only moorings at Peddocks were private. The ones formerly operated by Constitution Marina were all pulled out two winters ago due to a dispute with the city. There is some other company now operating moorings (the name eludes me at the moment) but there aren't as many of them as there used to be, and I don't know where they are.|

Boston Harbor Islands/Peddocks Island
Peddocks Island in the Boston Harbor Island Archipelago has about 20 deepwater moorings that can be reserved for a few $. Although, not especially close to anything except Hull, MA, it is a nice area and an ideal area for a raft up in the Massachusetts area that could be a an easy day sail from places in Buzzards Bay, P-town, or as far north as Rockport/Gloucester, MA.
It is also not in Boston Harbor per se, which I find a pain-in-the-butt to sail in during a nice summer w/e.
Cuttyhunk, while nice sounding, is a LONG sail for me, and unless I left at 7AM in the morning, had good wind, and the currents through the canal we at a favorable time, it would take me 2 days to get there.
