The legend "THE OCEAN STATE" "The Ocean State" as Rhode Island is nicknamed and above the date of its accession to The Union.
With more than 400 miles of coastline, Rhode Island is the smallest state in the Union, with more than 100 beaches, both freshwater and saltwater.
It is known worldwide as the Capital of Navigation, among other things because it hosted the most famous regatta in the world, the American Cup, for more than 50 years. Its geographical location, with its great gulf facing the Atlantic, the mouth of 4 important rivers and several islands in its interior, make Narragansett Bay an exceptional place to practice water sports.
