Re: Hey! From Someone New to Cruising

We kept out boat a Steppingstone Marina (Great Neck) for two years, right outside Little Neck Bay. The extreme western part of the Sound can be a bit congested with other boats and commercial shipping but further east it opens up nicely with lots of places to visit.
The Sound is a great place to keep a sailboat even though often, in summer, the winds can be better on the south shore of LI. The problem with the south shore is the few inlets that can, at times, become pretty boisterous and, of course, ocean swells.
My boat has been on a mooring in the Hudson up by the Tappan Zee Bridge for about 7 years now.
