Sakonnet open meet


Meet starts and ends at the Sakonnet Point harbor/boat ramp in Little Compton, 9am-2pm.

This is the third meet in the series. If you have not been diving at Sakonnet Point, this is one of the prettiest places to dive. With lots of small islands, and rocky structure, this place holds a lot of fish! Come join us!

Registration: 7:30-8 am

Entry fee: $20 to be paid when you register.
