Acquired in 2013, the O'Day at Greenwood Lake is the latest addition to SEAS Bergen's fleet. The boat's name is still under consideration. The chapter uses a membership model for use of the boat, with any SEAS member of any chapter also eligible to become a member of the Greenwood Lake O'Day. The annual dues are collected through SEAS Bergen membership form.
The O'Day is a 19 foot sloop with a swing keel and is fitted with an outboard motor. All O'Day members are invited to crew on sails led by qualified skippers. The O'Day is seen as a natural progression from our Basic Sailing course to learn on a larger boat using an outboard motor, towards becoming a skipper of this day sailer. Many members progress to taking the keelboat course on the chapter's 27' Catalina - The Zephyr, docked in Haverstraw Marina on the Hudson.
The boat slip is located just north of Emerald Point Restaurant in Greenwood Lake, NY. If you are looking for easy accessible lake sailing from Northern, NJ at an affordable price, this is the boat for you. Many of the boat's members became qualified skippers in just one year, and then can take the boat for a sail whenever the schedule and weather allows.
