The two options below are Poughkeepsie (which I love to say) and Croton-on-the-Hudson (seriously, it sounds like we're in England, but that's the name). Both are on the east side so should be sheltered from the east winds we're expecting. But Croton has a really nice anchorage nearby. When we've gotten through the bluster, and we're still waiting for a decent weather window to make the crossing, staying there will be handy.
Also, Croton is a bit closer to New York. We plan on taking the train into the city a day or two, so that trip will be shorter.

the Hudson, but then he had a pilot board, and we passed him.
Now he's passed us again. They're big, but they are not slow.
|This section of the Hudson is gorgeous.|
