Re: Threat to Newport, RI, anchorage

I have a question for all of you Newport anchoring people. Where do you put your trash? When I was there I could not find a spot to put trash ashore. What do you do?

There are dumpsters at the Maritime Center on Ann Street Pier that are available for cruiser’s trash disposal.

The definitive information about Newport Anchoring

Here is a picture of the harbor rules from the harbormaster himself.

They come around a few days before your 14 days is up to remind you it's almost time to get out.

Re: Threat to Newport, RI, anchorage

A special shout out to the SSCA for lobbying on behalf of all cruisers and convincing Newport to modify their plans to change the anchorage rules. Boaters are only required to be aboard from 12-6 am and in difficult weather conditions. Makes total sense.

Well, I wasn't talking about the sailing itself, but the ever tightening regulations that restrict what you do on the way or when you get to your destination or anchorage. For example, I see that the state of Georgia is trying to restrict anchoring in transit along it's stretch of the ICW by requiring some kind of permit.

Thank you Chotu for posting this. I think these are reasonable rules which also protect the right of transient vessels to anchor.

Maybe someone could send this to the port authorities in the State of Georgia.

And I think a point to be made is that there is that with clear and concise rules there is no need for port authority to use personal discretion to "take care" of undesirables.

Thanks for posting the local rules. Newport Anchoring rule #6 is in complete alignment with Colregs Rule 5 regarding a look out. Actually the city's rule 6 appears to be a slackening of the requirements of the basic Colreg Rule 5.

Rule 5 (Look-out)
Every vessel shall at all times maintain a proper look-out by sight and hearing as well as by all available means appropriate in the prevailing circumstances and conditions so as to make a full appraisal of the situation and or the risk of collision.
