Good points Shimshon! We usually make the
run from LI Sound, round the Battery and up
River to Kingston in two "long" days. If you
do more sailing than motoring, count yourself
very lucky and the tides DO matter.

One plan is to use the tide for a kick out
of the NYC area with a planned overnight in
Haverstraw/Stoney Pt.; next day run to Kingston, have a nice meal, and the next
morning take the run to Catskill.

Rob: We purchased our boat in Westbrook in July 2000 and set upon delivering it back to the Great Lakes. Because we were on a schedule, we stopped in Westport the first night, City Island the 2nd, did the run down the East River and around the Battery on day 3, making it all the way up to Haverstraw where there is a HUGE marina. Day 4 took us to Roundout Creek and day 5 got us to Troy. Needless to say, once off the Sound, we motored to keep up this pace and not be held up by the tides. Going around Manhattan was fascinating and virtually the entire stretch of the Hudson was quite scenic, especially the Catskills. Hells Gate was no problem at slack tide.

Every time I plan to sail, I have delusions of never starting the motor

Has anyone attempted to get up the Catskill Creek with a sailboat? The chart is not to clear as to the depth (I need 5 ft). It seems like it might get shallow about halfway up.

If possible I would like to tie up in Catskill for a week. (I will be staying with friends in nearby Palenville). I know there are marinas there and I have seen larger power boats and catamarans, but I don''t recall seeing anything with a keel.

Rob,the farther north on the Hudson you get,
the fewer sailboats (for obvious reasons). There are a couple of sailboat friendly marinas in Catskill. With any of the channels (Kingston, Saugerties, Catskill) plan to motor in as the wind dies due to being blocked by terrain most of the time.

If you plan to be on the boat at least half
the time, I''d do the driving tradeoff and
keep the boat in Kingston....try Hideaway,
Rondout Yachtbasin or Certified as they are
close to the shore facilities and have nice
amenities. There are a number of marinas up
the creek but are far from the action and
require auto for convenience. You can always
run up to Catskill for a few days.

Several times during the summer I meet friends in Palenville NY. They own 2 cabins up in the mountains. I usually drive up, but decided next year to combine a cruise/camping/golfing trip.
People laugh at me when I tell them I can''t wait to play golf when I go camping. Wait till they here I will be packing my golf clubs on my sailboat to go camping and hiking in the mountains.

I believe the closest marina is in Catskill and I want to be able to check my boat and maybe take guests out for a daysail without driving too far.

*If anyone wants to see a breathtaking waterfall, try Katterskill Falls (near hunter/palenville NY). You can hike to the bottom or drive/short walk to the top. Simply amazing!!

Hi- We''re planning a trip also this summer, but the reverse of yours. I''m a Nyack Boat Club member, with a 300 lb. mooring. If interested, I can make this available to you, which includes launch service to the club. I can also give you some ''local knowledge, if we speak.
Additionally, I am looking for accomodations for my 30'' Ericson, for a few weeks even for a month. Will be willing to rent.

Like to hear from you.

Hi- Sounds like a good idea. I am now thinking about later in the summer but my time frame isn''t set yet. I will have to check the rules of my yard, but maybe we could swap moorings for 3 weeks or so. My boat will be Moored in Noank CT this season. Noank (part of Mystic CT)is located at the mouth of the Mystic River. It''s a no frills marina, no launch or pool etc, but the location is great. If you find the Mystic Harbor on a chart you will see Noank and Morgan point. My boat will be moored on the East side of Morgan Point. I work at one of the area casino''s and my hours are late, so it might take me a few days to call you. My email is Robgallagher@sailnet.net

Talk to you soon.
