Sailing on the Hudson River
You need not spend a fortune to have the wind in your sails. The Windrider Sailboat seems perfect for enjoying the Summer breeze on the Hudson River.
I learned to love sailing in the San Francisco Bay. Off shore races to Santa Cruz or Point Reyes and a lot of racing inside the bay. But I’m not a sailing snob. Get me out on the water in any craft.
According to Outdoor Magazine, this Windrider is under 4K and “You sit face-forward in a fighter-jet-like cockpit, complete with an optional windshield, and steer with foot pedals, just like in a sea kayak.”
With all the Kayakers around Irvington NY, you’d think this boat would be a hit. The prevailing winds in the summer are either north or south — perfect for a reach over to Piermount for coffee in the morning.
