West Wind and it’s people are always a delight. Newport is at its best in the fall, thinner crowds, better service in the restaurants. Easy walk to our favorite food and drink.
Always clean, easy in & out, great floating docks and a reasonable price. What’s not to like? Oh the ferry can be a little noisy, but this is a great, well protected harbor. Easy walk into town for great dining, and a food and marine store walkable also.
Protected harbor, lobster roll at The Chart Room, and best goodie bag on the East Coast!
Great place, but be sure you bring plenty of dock lines and long ones. Fender boards are a help. The docks are fixed and a slightly unusual set-up with finger piers not perpendicular to the main dock. There are no cleats so all lines go around poles. The dockmaster is very helpful, and knows the best tie, but you will need more gear than you are used to if you are normally at a floating dock with cleats.
