Ninigret Pond, Charlestown, RI

Description: Most sailing is done on the salt pond behind the barrier beach. Cleanest wind is NE but this site is sailed in all wind directions. SW is side offshore but is still popular, even for beginners, since most of the sailing is over a sandbar. If you do short runs you can stay in waist deep water. Sailing on the oceanside is possible in SW winds but expect heavy chop with some shorebreak.

Driving directions: From Boston take I-95 S to exit 9/Rt.4 S (left side exit), Rte. 4 will merge into Rte. 1S, go past signs for Ninigret Park, another 5 or 6 miles, make U-turn at the sign for East Beach Rd/ West Beach Rd, go past West Beach Rd, turn R onto East Beach Rd. and follow to the end, continue past first parking lot down dirt Rd to second lot by the pond.
