Re: Public anchorage or mooring sites

Any cruising guide (like Embassy) will have a complete info on anchoring and mooring locations. Also the Maptech chart kits also include similar but less detailed information.

Re: Public anchorage or mooring sites

if i cannot find a cruising guide i consult charts.
there should be a sign of an anchorage on a chart somewhere. they use an anchor as a marking for anchorages.
best of luck .

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?

The small designated anchorage off Ida lewis yacht club in Newport gets very crowded. Moorings are available. I think they run $45?

Amen. There is another just north of Goat Island, but it's rocky and not great holding. Good enough, if it's not blowing stink. If you drop the hook to the east of the tip of Goat Island, the harbor launch will come get you as well. They are licensed to leave the harbor, so that's the demarcation line.

Re: Public anchorage or mooring sites

Active Captain is good resource, as is Waterway guide. Active Captain seems to be better at finding the hidden gems and Waterway guide is good for commercial marinas and services.
