45 minutes north of Pittsburgh isMoraine state Park with Lake Arthur a pretty good size lake for sailboats with a 10 hp max.And many other lakes in the region are used by the sailboat community.
There is a sailboat club at Moraine.

Great sailing at Pymatuming Lake which is half in Ohio and half in PA. Also, your close to Lake Erie.

I''m looking for ground transportation for several masts from Tonawanda, NY to Troy, NY next August (2001) when we (and possibly three other sailboats) go South from Georgian Bay to Florida waters. Does anyone know of trucking companies that transport masts in that area?

I grew up in Pittsburgh and learned to sail on the Allegheny River. There were a number of sailing clubs and yacht clubs near Verona and Oakmont if I recall (it''s been 30+ years ago). This area is better suited for small daysailers v larger boats. I learned on a snipe. Happy sailing.

I grew up in Pittsburgh I recall in those days the river was dirty enough to walk on let alone sail!

Sounds pretty scenic to sail on the three rivers. Is it common?
