Re: Fall sail up Hudson River
Unfortunately, West Point is off limits since 9/11. Nyack is a nice stop and you might be able to pick up a mooring at the Nyack Boat Club ... hopefully Caleb will chime in with details ... there is also a protected cove off of Bowline Park in Haverstraw ... I'm told you need to hug the south shore on entering or you will run aground.
Cold Spring is another option with anchoring north of the village.
I'd invite you to New Hamburg (just north of Beacon) but unfortunately our docks are pulled for the season. Beacon has an anchorage .... Check out JoeTheCobbler's posts about his trip down the Hudson.
