Re: Dinghy Sailing in New York City? Possible?
Port Washington on Long Island is a quick (30-40 minute) ride on the LIRR. Yacht clubs there have small boat sailing. At least one (Manhasset Bay) has a fleet of Ideal 18s that are shared. Next harbor out is where I am in Glen Cove. Its a longer (1 hour+) ride on the LIRR. My club (Hempstead Harbour Club) permits small boats to be stored on trailers or kept on moorings. We have an active Laser fleet. Sea Cliff YC has fleet of Ideal 18s that are shared. Next harbor out is Oyster Bay with 2 clubs - Sagamore and Sewanaka. Sagamore is right near the LIRR train station. Not sure what small boats they have there. Also near the station is a commercial marina (Oyster Bay Marine Center) and the Waterfront Center WFC - The WaterFront Center, Oyster Bay, NY - Long Island Sound: Sailing, Boating, Marine Education, Field Trips, Recreation, Kayaking, Summer Programs
