WELCOME TO THE CLUB
Sailing is a lifelong lesson. Every sail - whether it is for leisure or for learning purposes - gives you the opportunity to learn something new, exercise and enhance your skills, and all in all become a better sailor! Our members get to experience sailing through multiple 3-hour sails in the NY Harbor, weekend cruises outside the harbor, and, of course - sailing lessons. Learn more >>
LEARN TO SAIL
Members who are looking to learn and enhance their sailing skills can do so by purchasing a 9-lesson package of 2-3-hour on-water and classroom sailing instructions that are offered for members twice a week. Lessons are instructed by experienced skipper members or sailing instructors. Advanced sailing certification can be obtained after passing an online NauticEd course and a one-day skill assessment with one of our NauticEd certified instructors.
Learning to race is a great way to enhance and hone your sailing skills. Sailboat racing requires commitment, precision, focus, team work, physical strength, and discipline - all in order to maximize your sailboat's performance. Racing a 30'+ cruising boat is often way more challenging as there are more variables that need to be taken into account. In Sailors NYC, we make the racing experience fun, accessible and educational more than any other program in the area!
Why own a boat when you can join the club and sail on club-owned sailboats? Save money and have us worry about upkeep costs, maintenance, cleaning etc... Boats are conveniently docked at Liberty Harbor Marina in Jersey City - accessible by Path train, ferries, CitiBike and by car (parking is available at the marina).
Make new sailing friends! Being a member gives you access to the club members contact list - so next time you are looking for crew, a skipper or even to sail another boat, they might be only a quick message away.
Social Membership is offered for both boat and non-boat owners who wish to enjoy the club experience through on and off-water events and activities. Learn more >>
