Erie Canal System

you will love the sail down the Hudson. There are many marinas and yacht clubs lining the river. You may looking at www.boatingonthehudson.com for some stop over places. Albany to Kingston 1 day. Stay over night at the town docks on the Rondout creek in Kingston.(call ahead via phone or vhf) Some very good restarants you can walk to.
Some excellant mansions over look the river (the Vanderbuilts, the FDR Estate)

Don''t forget West Point (what a view from the river)

Just remember to check the tides each day
(the Hudson is a tidal esturary)

Enjoy the trip !!!!!
