area:
There really is no rigging area, you just rig in the parking lot. Some of the veteran sailors rig in the strip of grass between Hoover Rd and Rt 5, Watch out for the overhead power lines.
Launch: Sandy, Very small beach. The water near the shore is riddled with fin eating rocks. This year the water level is low, so the beach is bigger and the rocks are exposed. there are still two or three large rocks that long fins might hit.
Parking: Parking is free with room for 5 cars at the launch. Maybe 5 more on the street.Note- Cars on the street have been ticketed, especially on Friday Nights.
Extras: None.
