Re: Sailing on Hudson river

The wind was definitely blowing yesterday when I was out at Centre Island beach, near Oyster Bay/Bayville. I saw several waterfront center (WFC) boats out on Oyster Bay. We went swimming in the Sound though.
I was wondering if the WFC had the facilities to keep your own Sunfish there?
I agree that owning your own boat is a good idea. A Sunfish is not going to set you back a lot of ca$h unless you get a brand new one.
I think that Norwalk, CT should definitely be looked at. I don't know what kind of facilities they have inside the harbor for keeping a boat like a Sunfish though.
Some communities have boat racks at their beaches but it usually helps to be a 'resident'.
Do you have a vehicle you could use to move a Sunfish?

Re: Sailing on Hudson river

Wow, swimming? Lest anyone still doubt global warming...

WFC has full season boat rentals but they don't have facilities to keep your own boat. Norwalk has a marina I'll be exploring with jet ski docks that could work...and Croton allows non-residents to rent sunfish racks in the summer (although I need to investigate the feasability of lugging it on/off the rack, and whether dollies/trailers can be stored). My boat-share would be with a friend with a car (especially useful when checking out used 'fish on Craigslist ads).

Gateway Marina in Brooklyn probably has the easiest set-up of all...a small (sadly, trash-strewn) beach in Dead Horse Bay with access straight out to Jamaica Bay. Being safety conscious, I want to explore whether it's a good spot and am trying to research the conditions there. I've seen quite a few articles about kayakers being rescued from the bay.
