4 November 2018:
Newport, Rhode Island, US:
Winter Coming

By Corey Sandler, Destination Consultant Silversea Cruises

We sailed out of Boston last night and into the teeth of a storm headed up the coast. To get from Boston to Newport, our course was essentially this:

  • west to exit Boston Harbor and its many islands and to get far enough out to sea to be clear of Provincetown on the hook of Cape Cod, then
  • south, past Provincetown and thirty more miles to the east coast of the island of Nantucket and an additional 30 miles below Nantucket to stay clear of the shoals and rocks, then
  • west in the main transatlantic channel about 60 miles until we were in line with the entrance to Narragansett Bay, and then finally
  • north, back up to Aquidneck Island, the home of Newport, Rhode Island.

If that sounds like a complicated route that includes all four cardinal points of the compass, that’s because it is. The waters around Cape Cod and Nantucket are very hazardous to uninformed mariners.

In any case, we arrived at midday in Newport, to a beautiful fall day. This is the last day of this cruise, which began in Montreal, and a fitting end.

Here are some scenes from Newport. You can read more about this special place by entering Newport in the search bar of this blog.
