Pioneering development of the Ithaca waterfront

At Finger Lakes Sailing Charter, we believe that lakes are more than just bodies of water. Lakes are vehicles for dining, travel, education, charity, and relationships — there is a distinct difference between living on a lake, and simply being on it. For many years, Ithaca has struggled to develop its potential waterfront. We are committed to spearheading this development, by simply getting people out on the water, and building a community of like-minded folks.
