Sailing on the Upper Hudson - Albany

Hello,

Perhaps this is crazy but does anyone sail on the upper hudson aside from just passing through. I did the trip as a kid with my parents but I am now an adult resident of the Albany region and passionate about sailing. Buy a boat aside. Is is worth the time to keep a boat in the the albany area and sail the hudson (up and down)? At least I'd be able to sail on a regular basis.

The other options are to drive 3 hours to Lake Ontario, 3 hours to Lake george, or 3 hours to the Atlantic. Each one would significantly decrease the days I could spend on the boat.

Any thoughts about feasibility, worth-wild-ness would be greatly appreciated. Also, any suggesting as to where to keep a 22 - 32 foot sail boat near albany would be most helpful!

Thanks so much!

Carl
