Syracuse area sailboat rentals

I will be in the Syracuse area next week and with all the lakes nearby I thought there might be some fun sailing. My quick internet search only turned up powerboat/fishing boat rentals.

Would anyone know of a place I might be able to rent a day sailer?

Re: Syracuse area sailboat rentals

Would you like any particular lake?

I'd try calling the following two places

Sailboat Shop in Skaneateles NY
(315) 685-7558
SailboatShop@verizon.net
Welcome to The Sailboat Shop, Skaneateles, NY, 315-685-7558

They are on Skaneateles Lake, actually about a mile from there, but they do rent boats. Skaneateles is about 20-40minutes from Syracuse depending on what part of the city you are in.

You can also try Boat Works Limited, which is located in Syracuse but not near water. I don't know for sure if they rent or not.

Boat Works Ltd.

315-438-8915

Im on Owasco Lake, about 10 minutes further from Syracuse than Skaneateles, and I know some of the local Marinas rent power boats but I don't think anyone rents sail boats. If your interested in a powerboat rental try

Owasco Marine
Owasco Marine

OR

South Shore Marina

Re: Syracuse area sailboat rentals

Sailingtime,
I grew up in the central New York area (Oswego) and moved to Va about 8 yrs ago.
I am not sure if the sailboat shop has any rentals but Skaneateles Lake is a nice sailing lake and the water is a deep blue due to the bluestone bed. All the Finger lakes including Cayuga, Seneca, Canadaigua, etc...are fairly good sailing lakes and very deep (500' to 600') but if you want a rental, you can head up towards Henderson Harbor or Sackets Harbor - Navy Point Marine, both areas will have mid 20 footer rentals at small marinas and you will be sailing in protected harbors and also you could try Oswego Marina and Yacht club. There is Oneida lake just north of Syracuse but primarily power boats are on the lake and for whatever reason the winds are not consistent.
Talking about this makes me miss home...

Do a search for Henderson Harbor and the surround area Lake Ontario area, and you should come up with a few to choose from.

Re: Syracuse area sailboat rentals

Sailingtime,

I know for sure Sailboat Shop(Skaneateles) rents. I don't know if Henderson harbor rents but I do know that Patrscoe is absolutely right, its really pretty up there near the Thousand Islands. Your one drawback to that route is the distance from Syracuse will be roughly an hour. If you have the time and they do in fact rent boats, I would say go for it. However if you choose the Fingerlakes they will be warm (relative, I know) & almost always calm. Depends on the sailing you want and time available.
