Re: Dinghy Sailing in New York City? Possible?
Can't imagine it'd be much fun trying to avoid the traffic in NY Harbor or dealing with the current, which can top 4 knots just N. of The Battery. Getting in and out of the city will be the challenge but no so much on weekends. There seems to be a lot of sailing activity along the north side of western LI Sound pretty close to the city. That's also probably the easiest escape route. Toward NJ you'll hit shore traffic on weekends and beach traffic on the LIE going out to LI. If you want to go a little farther, up on the Hudson, Poughkeepsie has two yacht clubs with active one design sailing.
