Sakonnet Harbor, which was originally named Church Cove, is located at the entrance to the Sakonnet River. This harbor is used by fishing boats and recreational boats. The harbor is about 1/2 mile north of Sakonnet Point and five miles east of Newport, Rhode Island.

The marina is tucked behind the peninsula making the Sakonnet Point Marina and Yacht Club a protected marina. The highest building on the point is a two-storied clubhouse that is perched on pilings. The deck offers a view of the ocean, pool, and harbor.

Sakonnet Point Marina and Yacht Club is a favorite spot for recreational fishermen and the high-rock jetty protects the well-groomed docks. The harbor also is home to a small commercial fishing fleet.

If you need fule for your boat, gasoline is delivered by truck every Friday morning at 11:00 am and diesel is delivered on Mondays and Thursdays at 3:00 pm. The fule delivery truck accepts cash, check, MasterCard and Visa. They can be reached at (401) 635-4530.

I had to stop there because my mainsheet traveler broke and I needed some repair parts to fix it. The marina was not open at the time, closed for winter, however, I was able to contact the HarborMaster and he said I could tie up to do repairs. Everything was closed and the closest restaurant and grocery store is about 10 miles away.

I would not have been able to fix the mainsheet traveler if it were not for the kindness of the fishing fleet that works out of the harbor all year long. They gave me the part I needed and I was on my way again.
