Re: Dinghy Sailing in New York City? Possible?
You say you're looking for dinghy sailing, but don't say what dinghy. Thistle? 470? 420? Lightning? 505? Opti? Vanguard 15? Sabot? Different clubs in the NY area have different fleets. You may need to travel a bit to get to where they have boats like yours. In Manhattan, currents tend to make dinghy sailing difficult. They don't call it Hell Gate for nothing. Buttermilk channel may have a hefty chop churning much of the time. It's not like Toronto.
