Easy access from the marina to sailing water.
And, definitely with svHyLite on not wanting a country/eating/drinking/etc. club subsidized by a marina.
Close-by haulout would be nice.

Re: Criteria for choosing a marina/ yacht club

On a mooring at a town park district marina minutes from
the NYC line.
Five minutes from home.
Sailing immediately after clearing moorings.
Inexpensive.
Extended launch hours (5a.m. to 11p.m. 5 nights week)
Spectacular park setting and views, summer concerts Sat. and
Sun.
Life is good!

Re: Criteria for choosing a marina/ yacht club

No power, no water, no pumpout, no fuel...

But, 10 minutes from home, sailing from the mooring, relatively secluded, and cheap. Wouldn't change a thing.
