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. From here, it's just under a mile 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.

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.

Our stay at Sakonnet Point Marina was really extremely good. I highly recommend this marina. The facilities are very nice. 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 only downside of the experience (resulting in 4 stars instead of 5) was that this small harbor can be a little noisy in the early morning hours, as commercial fishermen go about their business. However, that should definitely not dissuade you from a stop-over here. The harbor is well-protected, quiet and of easy access: some older cruising guides mentioned the area being "mined" with numerous lobster pots and fish traps; we did not notice this as we approached (from Newport). Thanks to Chris, Brian, et al for a very pleasant stay!
