50th Anniversary of our family giving you more of what you go to sailing school for!SM


Welcome Aboard!

20% off!  Our winter/holiday sales event is ON.  Save 20% on a course you want to take, or join / renew in the Sailing Club – come on out on milder days this winter!

Hurry:  savings drop to 15% after Christmas Day.  After New Years?  Gone.  Contact us for ideas for you or a gift certificate, or just browse around and pull the trigger on our schedule/sign up page when ready.

We’re back from Sicily & Isole Eolie!  And, still occasionally sailing on milder days.  In between those sails:  Classroom Navigation and related courses (25% off through Sunday), and our Virgin Islands (BVI) trips.

Watch us on Fox 5 News!  “Closer Than You Think: City Island,” including its America’s Cup history, and sailing at NY Sailing Center!  See why it’s been called “much more like Cape Cod than New York City.”

We’re a Sailing Club and ASA Sailing School.  Escape Manhattan sailing school and Hudson River boating crowds!  Learn how to sail right the first time with our Start Sailing SM  course, do a sailboat rental, join our seasonal Club, take cruising or navigation courses, or vacation and train on a sailing yacht with us abroad.

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!

Thanks for visiting…  Steve
