Welcome aboard. I took a look at the Google map--it looks like you are on a waterway to a large bay and then to the sea. Are there not even a few "small boat" clubs on the river/waterway? Is it quite industrial? I know when we lived in a suburb of Tokyo,Japan, we were a few short kilometers to the sea--but there was no way to launch a boat there
Too industrial. There may have been clubs (surely there were) but I didn't know of any.
If it is NOT extremely industrial and if small boats are on the Pearl? river/waterway, it would be very tempting to procure/build a small dingy for sailing or even a small keelboat.
A nice shot of the river at night was here My link
There was a small boat regatta held nearby, too LINK
Big winds and waves for such little boats. I think these serious racers were having lots of fun.
Looking forward to hearing more about both your local boating conditions and your plans for cruising further away from there.
