|Our icons might be goofy,
but our sailing is serious. That's why the woman above is singlehanding!
Yes, you'll do that in our learn-to-sail/Basic Keelboat course, Start
Sounds intimidating? Don't worry - it's actually fun,
just like our equally effective
another NYSC signature (and exclusive). After the course, your two
supervised practice sails
without an instructor
on board leave you ready to truly sail and skipper the boat.
On top of all this, we're
easy to get to by public transit and by car. We'll even pick you
up from Manhattan!
Two Universities with Manhattan
locations - Columbia and Fordham - have their sailing teams train at City
Island. What does that tell you about learning
to sail here instead of Manhattan / NY Harbor / Hudson River?
(See a short
video clip of the Fordham team starting a race!).
on a Mission...
|...to provide the finest
instruction available at any price - something we started doing in
Our family is an award-winning industry
leader. We combine decades of owner-operation with fresh enthusiasm,
and we have an enviable amount of real, hands-on experience.
Teaching aids, location, boat selection,
choice of instructors, and experience all come together in perhaps the
most finely developed program in the industry.
We're a 'Green Dot'
Certification Facility for the American Sailing Association! That
means we've had our boats undergo Vessel Safety Checks by the US Coast
Guard Auxiliary. Out of 13 ASA schools in New York, we're one of
only 2 with a Green Dot listing.

You'll quickly learn why
you can't get a better sailing school education - OR value - anywhere else!
