Synopsis:

Between Long Island Sound and the elbow of Cape Cod lies a richly varied cruising ground. A Cruising Guide to Narragansett Bay and the South Coast of Massachusetts is the definitive cruising guide to these waters. Its coverage extends to the headwaters of Narragansett Bay and miles offshore to the solitude of Block Island and Nantucket.

Longtime area boaters Lynda and Patrick Childress and Tink Martin take you on a personal tour with all you need for a day, a weekend, or several weeks of cruising. They provide essential information on weather, tides, currents, and pilotage, as well as the availability of moorings and the closest place to pick up provisions. The unique harbor rating system shows at a glance what each anchorage offers in facilities, protection, beauty, and interest. Maps and charts help negotiate tricky channels or find that hidden marina.

When you've dropped anchor and are sitting back in the cockpit after a day's cruising, the guide continues to inform you, pointing out places to go for food and entertainment, where to find hiking trails, picnic and fishing spots, wildlife sanctuaries, museums, and more. In addition, the authors give cruisers the historical context in which to view the passing scenery, and they impart a deep affection for the region's unique character.

About the Author: Lynda and Patrick Childress have cruised Narragansett Bay for many years, Lynda since childhood. She is the managing editor of Cruising World magazine in Newport. Patrick, a U.S. Coast Guard-licensed master, has more than 30,000 miles at sea, some of which were amassed during a solo world circumnavigation from 1979 to 1981. He is a frequent contributor to Cruising World and other magazines.

Tink Martin has explored the waters around Cape Cod and the islands since childhood. A former field rep for Boating Almanac and a 21-year member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary, Tink has written about boating for 15 years and contributes regularly to Offshore and other magazines.
