Those who like flatwater on the East End LI should check out Red Cedar Point. It gets nice on a SW 6.2 day like today, plus ramps and swells are on the other side of the sandbar in Flanders Bay. Follow the link for more info. Hope to see people out there!

Is this a shallow water site?
When learning new tricks can one just jump back on - or is it a waterstart location?

And... How easy is it to launch, park and what's the best wind direction for sailing here? Thanks, John

The water is knee to waist deep on low to mid tides, and chin to overhead on high tides. Don't get too close to shore on extra low tide or you'll lose a fin! This site has an excellent tide table. The best wind direction is SW -- SSW and WSW also work, but due SW is best.

You can get to the Point either by upwinding a couple tacks from South Jamesport, or via the Red Creek Pond boat launch. See this map for details, and also the LI Windsurfing Map. Jamesport probably works best - while a parking permit is required, they only hassle you on sunny, dead-air summer weekends.

If you have the opportunity to dial in your session time, try hitting it from South Jamesport on Southwest wind when the tide is coming in. There are both extensive shallow flatwater areas as well as a nice mid-section with jumpable ramps, that as best we can tell is ideal 2 hours after low tide.
