Looking for an affordable club for next season near Manhattan

We are seek an affordable club next season not too far from Manhattan by some form of public transportation as we are the kind of folks that have a boat but not a car.

If you aren't dead set on ocean sailing, up the Hudson the prices drop off pretty quick.

Re: Looking for an affordable club for next season near Manhattan

How about Stamford, CT? There's a marina a couple of miles from the Stamford train station - Harbor House Marina (a quick cab ride). This is where we keep our boat. I believe they have a couple of slips open for the summer season, and plenty (in water) for winter season. This marina is behind a hurricane barrier, which provides excellent protection when it is closed due to a storm. And it's only a very short motor to get out of the harbor to Long Island Sound.

North Shore Yacht Club in Port Washington (working club) in Manhasset Bay.
protected bay with a lot of services, restaurants, shopping, supermarket, west marine.
Also Steppingstone marina (my marina) in great Neck, just west of Manhasset Bay, very inexpensive as is a park facility which is ok with non residents. Very pretty park setting with evening concerts on Sat. and Sundays all summer long. Also has extended launch hours in season.
Both Port. Washington and Great Neck are on Long Island Railroad Port Washington line.
Best line on railroad (22 minutes express to Great Neck from Penn Station) about 35 minutes local.
If interest, happy to show you around.
Hugo

Re: Looking for an affordable club for next season near Manhattan

while you're sorting this out, you may want to consider marinas. for a while, we did Port Washington in the summer (Manhasset Bay Marina; 45 min on the LIRR direct from Penn Sta then 15 min walk or $10 cab ride) and Newport/Pavonia in Jersey City in the winter (PATH across the Hudson, and a 5 min walk after), sailed all year long. the boat was a Pearson 28, wet stored in winters, never needed maintenance other than an occasional bottom scrub/paint which we would short haul for. now we have an older bigger boat and it's oh so different...

the downside of marinas is you can't do work there (other than hire them directly, and i don't know MBM by experience or reputation), but the upside is you aren't locked into a contract by having paid a one-time fee to join (as you would with a club).

on the other hand: the further out in the LIS, the better the wind. and express MNR trains to Stamford, CT take almost the same time as local trains to Rye, NY for example (but i don't know much walking distance marinas/YCs next to either station to recommend one).
