RACING TEAM

 
ABOUT

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 very challenging, as there are many variables that need to be taken into account. Here at Sailors NYC we make the racing experience fun, accessible and educational more than any other program in the area! Our experienced coaches have raced many types of boats: from dinghy boats and small day-sailers all the way up to large competitive racing boats. 

 
PROGRAM FEATURES

The Sailors NYC Race Team started in 2017, on board Veronica, our O’Day 30’ sailboat - registered with the Yacht Racing Association of Long Island Sound (YRALIS), PHRF of the Middle Atlantic and US Sailing. In addition to participation in the  Wednesday nights PHRF (Performing Handicap Racing Fleet) races in the NY Harbor, we are usually racing on additional 2-3 races in the area.  Since 2018 we are participating at the Around Long Island Regatta - a 205nm (nautical mile) long race - starting in the NY Harbor and sailing east, around Montauk and ending in Sea Cliff, Long Island. We are looking forward to racing it again in 2020!
