The Atlantic Ocean, well, it is an ocean with waves, surf, swell, a consistent sea breeze and water temps in the mid to upper 70’s this time of year. There are numerous hotels/motels, rental homes, nearby campgrounds, restaurants, bars and shops of every kind. Additionally we are planning on having our own Hobie RV Park right on the beach; front and center to all the attractions.
Instead of sailing in the ocean with the boardwalk of Wildwood as the backdrop we will be sailing in the Sandy Hook Bay with the New York City skyline as a backdrop.
