I'll try and give you an ideal. <G> I used to rent a house in
Westhampton Beach for the winter that was right across Quantuck Bay from
Quogue (yes I know most people rent houses out there for the _summer_ but
most of them are not windsurfers. If you have access to Quantuck bay,
the sailing there can be okay although in the summer it can be a mob
scene of power boats, jet skis, waterskiers and even seaplanes. If you
don't have access to the bay, I'm not exactly sure where you'll find
public access and you're probably better off sailing somewhere else
anyway. There is a good spot in Remsenburg, just a few miles away. The
bay is much bigger there and you can sail over to the new beach the Army
Corps just built, just in time to be washed away this winter. For exact
directions to this site and others, be sure to go to Marc Guido's
Adirondack Boardsailing web page. If you are up for a road trip, you
might consider Napeague, out by Montauk. Shallow water and a nice
launch site but not necessarily more wind then you'll find around Quogue.
The drive out there can be kind of tedious in the summer because of all
the summer traffic. There are also some sites on Peconic Bay, but I've
never sailed them. I've also never sailed the ocean there, which could
be some fun if you get some wind. Speaking of wind, I'll be praying for
you because this is not the best time of year to get much.
