Approach


From the west At R "2" Q R WHIS south of Brenton Reef, it's a straight shot east –northeast for about 5.5 miles to G "1" BELL off Cormorant Reef. Keep south of this buoy. Then, head another 1.4 miles to R "2A" Bell at the entrance to the Sakonnet River. As you enter the Sakonnet River Be aware of the fish trap on your starboard side it is marked on your charts. This fish trap is connected to our breakwater you must go around on the north side. From here, head straight to the northeast to Fl R 4s 34 ft 8M "2" at the entrance to Sakonnet Harbor. From the east Stay at least 1 mile offshore here, and make a course for GR C at Elisha Ledge. Rounding this buoy to either side, it's about 1.6 miles west to R "2" Bell marking Schuyler Ledge, 1 mile south of Sakonnet Point. Stay to the south of R "2" Bell as you head west. Pass the R "2" Bell by about a mile, keeping a mile offshore to avoid the rocks and fish traps. (Please note the legend on your chart for the areas around Newport and Sakonnet that mark the areas where fish traps are located) There are two privately maintained Y Fl Y 2.5s markers west of West Island and about a half mile apart. These identify fish traps that are fished until about mid-June….keep them to the east. Then, turn northwest toward R "2A" Bell. Both West and East Island are uninhabited; keep a safe distance. From R "2A" Bell, it's another mile to Fl R 4s 34 ft 8M "2" on the north end of the breakwater at Sakonnet Harbor.

Sakonnet Point Marina is a great stopover between Narragansett Bay and Massachusetts ports. Helpful staff, nice docks, and well protected. Use of the club facilities costs extra. The beach is a nice walk. Only issue was being next to the commercial fishing dock that was in use morning and night.

Great location and top notch service. Chris was super helpful and $25 ‘membership’ to access yacht club showers and restaurant is definitely worth it.

The facility is well maintained by a friendly staff. In 50 years of sailing, I’ve never encountered a ($25) charge to use a bathroom. The pool was also mentioned and featured in the pdf of the property, but use of the pool is $100. use of a private beach was mentioned, but when asked about I was referred to the town beach. The relationship between the marina and the club should be well described on the website and all publications. Otherwise, assume the $4 per foot a down payment!

Really enjoyed the location and atmosphere of a smaller marina. Sakonnett Point Club is an added bonus. Good service arriving and with delivery of ice that we requested. Only issue with the stay was the power on the two towers nearest out boat did not work. We had to resort to our gen set.

Dock hands were quite good and the slip was in very good condition. However our slip charges did NOT include access to the private adjoining club, which had the only available heads and showers and cost an additional $25 for the crew. Had we opted to enjoy the pool or fitness center the up charge was $100. Dinner in the club however was quite good.

Dock master was a great help on our first visit to this marina. But it should be noted that this is part of a Yacht Club and they do not offer any amenities including access to bathrooms with out an additional charge of $25.00. First marina we have ever encountered this. If they don't want transients to stop there they shouldn't list it.

Our stay at Sakonnet Point Marina was really extremely good. I highly recommend this marina. It is a small, well-run, welcoming marina. The dock staff is great: very friendly; they guided us into the harbor very well and assisted us in docking our sailboat and also departing the dock (sometimes a finicky experience). They went out of their way to be helpful, even providing a ride to nearby Sakonnet Vineyards (although they are not always available for that). We took advantage of the $25 "temporary membership" at the adjoining Sakonnet Yacht Club, which is definitely worth doing; it allows you access to the Club's very clean, modern showers and restroom facilities, as well as allowing you to eat at their fine on-site restaurant---which serves a nice variety of well-prepared-presented food and has great views of the ocean. The harbor is well-protected, quiet and of easy access. There are fish traps and lobster pots near the entry to the harbor, but are easily avoided if you are vigilant. A call to the marina office can provide very helpful details about the approach. Thanks to Chris, Axel, et al for a very pleasant stay.

Beautiful and peaceful spot with delightful staff (Chris). The restaurant of the Sakonnet YC nearby is also a very welcoming place. This Marina was our preferred one during our sail from Port Jefferson NY to Hingham MA.
