About the 55’ Capt’s Lady charter-fishing vessel, fishers of all experience levels angle for fluke, striped bass, bluefish, or porgy in Brooklyn’s Sheepshead Bay. The boat’s twin Detroit Diesel engines keep things motoring while an experienced crew of happily grizzled seafarers make the experience fun and easy. When they’re not helping newcomers get used to fishing’s nuances, they’re happy to answer other questions; go ahead and ask them about the biggest fish they’ve ever caught, or about that time they mistook the Statue of Liberty for a really big mermaid. Recently renovated, the ship also includes creature comforts such as an onboard bathroom, snack bar, and cabin seating.
With sails extended high, the sailboats of Sail the Hudson catch breezes, their captains navigate the waters around New York Harbor. As sailing voyages pass Manhattan's cloud-brushing skyscrapers, passengers interact with the captain and take in fiery sunsets over the rippling water.
Soccer is known as "the beautiful game," but it doesn't always start out pretty. It takes hard work and determination to become a great footballer. That's why Coach Frank opened Soccer Beyond, a comprehensive training community. Having gone through top-flight academies, including the school at Borussia Mönchengladbach in Germany, he's performed some of the sport's most demanding drills and skills. He teams up with Coach Andrew, a product of Everton FC's academy in Liverpool, England. Together they have a world of soccer knowledge to share.
The main points the coaches want to instill is that soccer is a team sport and to have fun. They don't exclude anyone from playing, and keep an upbeat, encouraging atmosphere throughout all training sessions, scrimmages, and games. During sessions, they teach adult and youth players how to pass, receive, and dribble. They also cover keys to soccer-specific quickness and building stamina. Whether engaging their students through camps or league games, the coaches always place importance on healthy lifestyles and can-do attitudes.
Nationwide Bowling orchestrates a cacophonous symphony of clanking pins and cheering bowlers at 11 modern bowling centers located throughout New Jersey. Center size varies from the Hudson-Bayonne location where 60 lanes with automatic scoring, a grill, sports bar, and arcade games accommodate armadas of bowlers to Garden Palace, which houses 16 lanes, a bar, and a snack shop. At all locations, staffers host birthday parties and corporate events and organize leagues for competitive bowlers or people who just like to chuck heavy objects as hard as they can.
