Narraganse­tt Bay is at the north end of Rhode Island Sound, which hosted AMERICA’S CUP RACES from 1930 to 1983. Today, all kinds of boats cruise and race here, making for on-water fun and a great spectator sport. It’s not unusual to see J Boats or classic HERRESHOFF DESIGNS

take to the bay en masse for regattas, or to see DOWN EAST POWERBOATS strutting with style across the local waters. The HERRESHOFF MARINE MUSEUM

borders Narraganse­tt Bay in Bristol, and has transient dockage and moorings available from mid-May through the middle of October. The AMERICA’S CUP HALL OF FAME is on-site, with half-hull models on display.
