If it was the only place kids could learn to sail in NYC, I would say the David v Goliath thing would work. I don't believe it is, by a long shot.

Why did I think that Dennis Connor owned/ran the marina in North Cove? That is, btw, a bucket list destination one day. Just pull in, hit our favs in NYC for a night. The problem is, when we're on the boat, being in the city has little attraction at all.

I hate the 79th street boat basin. Ratsy, nasty, rundown, overpriced.
The staff are all a-holes and most of the mooring cleats are barely screwed in.
I have been there 5 times. :puke
I still think it's an experience everyone should have once. To dinghy in to Manhattan is surreal. Nevertheless, this is all true. Sort of how you learn to harden up survive in NYC (my old home town) :)
