We started windsurfing in Hempstead Bay. We sailed out of the Hempstead Bay Yacht Club in Island Park. The bottom in the bay area is smelly, black muck. You sink up to your shins when you step in it.
Ive seen people sailing in Jamaica Bay (near Atlantic Beach). That looks like a good spot.
Reynolds Channel runs from Atlantic Beach to Lido and has strong currents and large boat wakes. I wouldnt sail there.
