When I was young I lived in a lake community and raced sunfish and comet's. Despite enjoying sailing, I stopped sometime in the late 80's.
Fast forward to 2021. I decided to sign up for the ASA
Basic Keelboat Sailing course. I live in NJ and took the course through a group based in the NY Harbour. The course was great and I really enjoyed being back out on the water
. I followed up the initial course with the Basic Coastal Cruising and Bareboat
Cruising courses. Most of my recent sailing has been on the Hudson
, the NY Bay, Raritan
Bay, Sandy Hook area, and a bit past that into the Atlantic.
I started back up because I thought it would be great to be able to do some charter
vacations in the Caribbean
with my family
. Instead I find myself getting hooked and looking to become more of an active weekender. It's to the point that I've started researching marinas
and looking at used boats online.
This has lead me to this forum. Curious if anyone can guide me to any discussions about NJ marinas
. Marinas in the harbor are convenient, but costly. Some of the ones further south are more reasonable, but I don't know much about them.
I'm sure there are plenty of used boat
discussions that I'll find.
