    As April arrives, signaling the beginning of spring, there is a sense of excitement in the air. The docks, which have been patiently waiting for this moment, are finally back in the water, ready to embrace the new season. It's a time of renewal and rebirth as nature awakens from its winter slumber. The gentle lapping of the water against the dock reminds us that warmer days lie ahead, filled with the promise of blooming flowers and chirping birds. The arrival of spring at the docks marks a fresh start at the Albany Yacht Club and a time to enjoy the beauty of the boating season.

    The docks will be available to all transient river traffic from May 1st.

    The Albany Yacht Club is excited to announce new forums. We hope these new forums will re-ignite vibrant discussions on boating, and we have packed the new forum with new features to inspire just that. We divided and named some categories to try to make the forums more useful for our community. We built this platform as a place for all our members and non-members boat enthusiasts to communicate with each other, share the unique ways you are using your boating skills, and learn best practices and excellent tips and tricks from one another.

    Now, let’s get familiar with the layout. Under the main topic on the main menu, under - “Boating,” you will find four main categories. You can access them by clicking the links on the submenu or the links below.

    Docking a boat: Here, we exchange our experiences, tips, tricks, and best practices regarding our encounters with docks. How do you approach it, what do you avoid, etc.?

    Going Places: We all know that the Albany Yacht Club is the best and most beautiful marina on the Hudson River. But what other places have you landed? What was your experience? What other marinas would you recommend visiting?

    Equipment and Electronics: Did you purchase a new GPS, Glass Display, or radio? What is your experience with it? Are you happy, or do you have some complaints? Maybe you are not sure why it is doing what it is doing. You could advise other users on its use and installation.

    All Things Boating: Here, you can enjoy friendly conversations with other forum members and boaters on marine-related topics, boats, and boating in general. Your imagination and curiosity are the only limits.

    Our forums are new and populated with just an initial question only. Could I challenge you to respond to one of those questions? Let’s get the conversation going.

    Of course, nobody is perfect, so please give us feedback and comments on how we can improve; all suggestions are welcome.

    AYC’s website is where members connect. To help our members make more of these connections, we’re introducing Buy and Sell Marketplace, a convenient destination to discover, buy, and sell boating-related items with people in our marine community. Marketplace will make it easy to find new things you’ll love and find a new home for the things you’re ready to part with. We’ll continue to build new options and features to make this the best experience for all our members. We’ve all got marine stuff we don’t use, never used, or will not use anymore. Why not sell it or trade it instead? It takes just minutes, and listings are free and available to all Albany Yacht Club members. Remember, one person’s trash could be another person’s treasure. You can list anything boating- and marine-related, from parts to boat equipment to boats.

    But remember, somebody else must list it first for someone to find a new thing. This is a brand-new area of our brand-new website. Please use it!

    To visit Marketplace, tap on the link here.

    For your planning…….

    • The canal system is scheduled to open for the 2024 season on Friday, May 17, 2024 (subject to weather conditions).
    • It is scheduled to close on Wednesday, October 16, 2024.

    NYS Canal System has been designated a National Historic Landmark. The designation places New York's operating canals among the premier historic sites in the United States.

    The National Historic Landmark designation includes the Erie, Champlain, Oswego, and Cayuga-Seneca canals. Direct successors of canals built during the 1820s, these waterways were enlarged to their current dimensions between 1905 and 1918. They remain in service today passing commercial and pleasure vessels between the Atlantic Ocean and the Great Lakes.

    The NYS Canal System is remarkable in its span, scope, and historical integrity. The National Historic Landmark designation includes 450 miles of navigation channels and 552 contributing structures and buildings that operate today largely as they did when the system went into operation in 1918. The NYS Canal System's navigation channels, locks, lift bridges, dams, power houses, and maintenance shops together represent a significant, distinctive, and exceptional entity.
