The harbor is perfect. The boats going in & out move with no wake. The harbormaster is doing the job. The yacht club assigned us a mooring in a good spot, and Chuck, the steward, sees to it that all the hawsers are out of the water and clean. The harbor is very well protected from all directions, and beautiful. Two welcoming public floats give you a good spot to tie the dinghy and walk the old time streets and visit the shops, and look at the restored homes. The restaurant on the water is fine and has a good selection. The Pizza place across the street has one of the best pies I have had, and we enjoyed taking it back to the boat to watch the setting sun. Only thing we missed was a convenience store nearby for a few food items. No luck. Nice visit we stayed a total of 3 days!

We didn’t go into yacht club. But chuck came out and showed us to a mooring. Easy dinghy ride to quaint town center of wickford. Beautiful little seaside town with ample shops and restaurants. Watch the town dinghy dock at low tide really no water to get out if u r around back of dock.

Our first attempt via radio to reach the WYC went unanswered but we got a quick response with a cell call. We were given clear directions to find our mooring. Chuck from the club came out to greet us and provided a map and answered our questions. We dinked into town. The town dinghy dock is clearly marked but could use an upgrade as there was rotten wood and rusty nails making tying up hazardous.

Wickford Yacht Club and Chuck (the Steward) were very welcoming and got us on a mooring with short notice. The harbor is pretty, peaceful and convenient.

nice harbor, well maintained and well marked moorings. WYC did not respond to VHF on channel 9 or phone (early afternoon). Someone did eventually come out in a dinghy. If you are expecting to pick up a specific mooring, be aware that there may be squatters sitting on it.

very pleasant staff. but there being no launch service in the entire harbor was a definite negative. we only have oars for our dinghy and rowing to the village took 40 minutes in the calm after a horrendous thunderstorm. I'd hate to think how long it would have taken if there had been any wind.

It was a stunning visit in every way. Facilities great but Chuck and all members of the club we encountered we the true highlight of Wickford. Thank you!

For mooring reservations, bring your dinghy; there are no launch services anywhere in Wickford harbor. Wickford YC has half a dozen (barrel-shaped) guest moorings available, Just inside of breakwater and to the north of the channel. Very peaceful in a light northwest wind. Chief Steward Chuck was very helpful and courteous. Club facilities (shower, etc.) nice and clean. A few good restaurants/coffee shops near Town Dock, a 10-minute dinghy ride into the south arm of the L-shaped harbor.

WYC is a lovely, but no frills club with a very helpful and accommodating steward who came out to our mooring on arrival to greet us. There are new, clean showers, a long face dock, grills and picnic tables that are available to visiting yachtsmen. The clubhouse is in a nice, quiet part of the harbor and WYC is definitely on our list of places we're looking forward to coming back to.
