New to us?  Shopping for a sailing school or club in the New York NYC Tri-State area? We teach navigation in Manhattan, but sail out of City Island, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. Browse around; discover our history and teaching pedagogy. See some pics and clips of our students in action, both in-house and in the news.  Read their reviews. Learn why you can’t get a better sailing club experience – or education – anywhere else.

What are sailing and sailing school like?  Read our Rant about it.

We’re the ’boutique’ sailing school.  The focus isn’t on churning out greenhorn graduates and spitting them into a safety-in-numbers sailing club.  Sure, we have a club – but our students can truly skipper in it.  Our ideal location allows independent progression after you learn, and our sailing club allows sailors of all abilities to roam. That’s how we prepare you, and that’s what our family has done for two generations since 1968.  When we do, you can go on to do whatever you want.  Of course, we can help you along the way because, as we’ll point out throughout…

We give you MORE of what you go to sailing school for!

Welcome aboard, and happy hunting…  Steve
