Welcome to Weekapaug! Here is some information you may find helpful for the Leo weekend.

Getting here. You can either Google the address or follow these instructions:

From Route 1 South towards Westerly, take 1A (Shore Road) after the Charlestown/Westerly border to Noyes Neck Road on the left. Go to the end and follow Spray Rock Road left around the coast to the end of the pavement. The Yacht Club will be ahead on your left.

From Route 1 North from Westerly, at the first major intersection take a right on Langworthy Road and proceed to the traffic light, where it intersects 1A (Shore Road). Take a left and find Noyes Neck Road on the right. Follow the directions above for the rest.

Parking. When you register at the Yacht Club, you will be given parking passes.

Boat launch and moorings. The launch ramp is next to the Club. Please remember to close the gate and spin the lock when you’re done. Leave the trailers by the landing; we will number them and move them to the Weekapaug ball field and return them to the Club on Sunday after the races.

We will be available to help with launching and mooring on Friday and Saturday during check-in times Friday, 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. and Saturday, 7:00 -9:00 a.m.) Other times call Steve Glovinsky at (203) 984-9346 and he will talk you through the process.

We will either have moorings available at the club, which we’ll assign based on your registration information, or we’ll anchor boats off the dock or by the beach side of the inlet.

Accommodations. If you haven’t made arrangements yet, there are many places nearby if you Google “Accommodations in Westerly RI.” Popular and reasonably priced hotels are La Quinta and Winnipaug Inn. The Shelter Harbor Inn and Villa B&B are more upscale. Check around; most places fill up during the height of the summer season.

Restaurants. If you arrive Friday, there are several good places for dinner (Google “Restaurants in Westerly RI”), but they are usually busy. Tell us what you’re in the mood for and we’ll give you some recommendations – call Julia Bradford at (917) 363 2502.
