If your planning atrip to Rhode Island this summer, plan to include a sail on Madeleine.  She is a lovely sailing vessel that departs from Bannister's Wharf in downtown Newport and does an 1 1/2 sail around Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay.  The boat is large enough for everyone to be comfortable yet small enough to get a real feel for sailing.  And you get to see some beautiful sites while on board - Guest see about 6 or 7  mansions and a number of lighthouses not to mention 100s of wonderful boats that call on Newport .  This sail is not to be missed if your going to be in Newport.

There are sooo many things that you can say only in Newport such as National Museum of American Illustration, the gilded mansions, clam chowder festivals, newport jazz festival, The International Tennis Hall of Fame, The Magic Studio,  Redwood Library Athenaeum.  All of these places and events are so unique that these are must see places to visit when you are in Newport.
