Re: Fall sail up Hudson River

You rang? Thanks Ron.

Yes, the NBC has cheap guest moorings at $25/night. Restaurants within a short walk. Shoreside head and showers. Limited weekend hours launch service.
If you prefer a marina and slips then Tarrytown Marina should be still in operation. The downside to this spot is that the marina is a bit tight to navigate and the Amtrak/Metro North trains run past at frequent intervals. Haverstraw Marina is likely still in operation mode - much quieter then Tarrytown as no commuter trains running by.

Bowline Point 'pond' is a great anchorage and completely out of the river so no reversing current to deal with while at anchor. Hug the south shore of the entrance or you will find the bottom like I did. If you look this spot up on google maps you will see the shoal sticking up out of the water.

There is also a small anchorage just south of the Bear Mtn. Bridge on the west side. Beautiful natural spot across from Anthony's Nose (mtn).

North of that is off my radar.

Bring your Eldridge and try to time your runs up and down the river with the current. The current can run up to 2 knots and more where the river constricts.

The foliage should be pretty much at peak.
Enjoy!
