Small Sailing Clubs in New York

Small Sailing Clubs in New York
New York has lots of opportunities for sailing, given New York City's proximity to the Hudson River and New York Harbor. The New York Harbor is made up of several bays, rivers, creeks and other geographical features that make it an enjoyable place to set sail. One can get away from the hustle and bustle of this buzzing metropolis and enjoy a quiet outing on the water, while still enjoying the scenic view of the city's silhouette. The harbor is large and very protected and the many nooks and crannies available for exploration on the Hudson make it an ideal place for small craft sailing. In addition, there are plenty of small sailing and yacht clubs with moorings available and varied facilities for sailors at rest to make use of.
