lower hudson

planning to sail up from 79th street this saturday for an overnight. ideally would like to make it to cold spring but that's bit far for a leisurely day.

also looking at croton, haverstraw etc as there seems to be a lot of marinas. any suggestions?

also, any ideal anchorage areas?

(any other info, suggestions welcome.. first time in the area)

Use google maps and enter 'Bowline Point, NY'. This is one of the few really safe anchorages in the lower Hudson area and is about 30 nm north of the Battery. People also anchor north of Croton Point but there is still some current there. Haverstraw Marina is nice but a little pricey. I don't know much about Peekskill.
Cold Spring would be a pretty long slog IMHO. It sure is pretty up there though. I would take a couple of days to do the Hudson Highlands gorge area, not just one overnight.

A quick look at ActiveCaptain - The Interactive Cruising Guidebook - Marina Reviews, Fuel Prices, Anchorageswould suggest half a dozen anchorages around where you are looking. Also, reviews of some of the marinas you mention.
