Where to go sailing?

small sailboatGreg emails:

I'm fighting the good fight here, raging against the end of summer... I'm not a country club / yacht club member locally, but I'm wondering where a recovering small boat sailor might be able to rent a Sunfish or a Laser to get an end of summer sailing fix? Bonus points given for smaller lakes.

Got a suggestion for Greg? Please share!

Check out Camp Little Notch-- not quite a 'rental', but a great community with a wonderful wilderness.. including sunfish for the 80 acre privately owned lake.

Try Great Lake Sacandaga. It's a big lake and has plenty of wind for sailboats. There's several free municipal boat launches around the lake, no need to pay.
