Yeah, but we already paid for the slip, and winter storage, up in NJ. And darn it, I'm going to get there!!!

Yeah they have a very active race community in NY harbor with a fleet of J24s that race just off the Statue every Tuesday and Wed night. (Actually planning to head down there tonight and tip a few while watching them.
Iím having a blast learning to sail in NY harbor. Between the Ferries, Barges, and countless other vessels, it sure keeps you on your toes.

Philly, Jersey Shore, and Long Island CL's had the best collection of boats when I was searching earlier this year. You'd occasionally find new ones in the NY, CNJ, and north/south Jersey listings, but the other three seemed to get the most listings. Also check out sailingtexas.com and sailboatlistings.com for boats for sale. Sailingtexas has a great photo gallery too, which is helpful for understanding what a particular model looks like. SailboatData.com is also an invaluable resource.

Re: New Sailor with Lots to Learn

I'm sure you already know, but if you're looking for a dinghy Craigslist Philly seemed pretty decent. I checked out that part before and it seems like it would be close to you. I don't know what others think of it, but it certainly seems CL has quite the variety.
