Re: Public anchorage or mooring sites
Check the Active Captain link provided above.
Beyond the federally designated anchorages in Newport, the most popular open anchorages in the Bay are the following (off the top of my head)
Potters Cove (northeast side of Prudence Island)
Dutch Harbor (north of mooring field on west side of Connanicut Island)
Goddard Beach (off East Greenwhich)
Bristol Harbor (south of the mooring field)
Point Judith Refuge (not technically still in the Bay)
There are other less popular, such as:
Jenny Cove (on the west side of Prudence, but exposed to prevailings)
Potter Cove (note not plural like above, just northwest of Newport Bridge)
Several coves on the southwest side of the Bay, heading down toward Pt. Judith, all exposed)
Then there is the Kikamiut River (the Kicky), but it can be tricky to get in.
The Sakonnet river has Fogland and Third Beach
Those should get you started. What part of the Bay will you sail from?

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