Hello to All,

Does anyone know of any places that rent small ( 20 foot range) sailboats in the Long Island Area. I just took the ASA Basic Keelboat class and I am looking to practice what I learned. For those of you that are like me and new to sailing, I highly recomend taking a class. Any info on the sailboat rentals would be greatly appreciated.

Like the others have said, Oyster Bay Water Front Center. Also besides the Sonars and Rhodes they have Sunfish as well. Flipped a great many of those over there when i was learning to sail...

ah sunfish boats, a great boat for really hot days, just pull the sheet and a little too much and you are now cooled off. i have thought about getting one just for the wet side of life.

i do know what not to do on a sunfish, and thats wind over 20 knots, i actually ripped a new sail on one once in 20 knot winds. was great fun till i had to paddle a mile in 20 knot winds

I took lessons out at Sag Harbor, about 2 hours from where I live. I am looking for a place that might be closer to my home in Long Beach.
