IN THE PRESS

Captain Nitzan Levy discusses how she has developed sailing in her local community. She is an inspiration to us all. We could all take a lesson from her. She created her own little club, she has organized local sailors to feed the homeless, she volunteers to help at-risk youth through sailing, she is involved with the Maiden around the world project, the list goes on.

Started in 2013, Sailors NYC is the only club in the New York Harbor that offers local sailors an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy recreational sailing on medium-size vessels (25 feet and up). To create a true club environment, we provide a variety of programs for all levels of sailors, including cruising, racing, organized boating events, and social events and educational programs.

Founder & CEO Capt. Nitzan Levy became the captain of 18 boat flotilla organized by the United Nations UN SDG Action Campaign to welcome climate activist Greta Thunberg on board the Malizia II into the NY Harbor.
