NYC Adult Sailing Courses

We believe sailing is a wonderful gift in life.  If you wish for it to be a part of yours or to improve your existing skills to enjoy it more or to learn so as to enjoy the sport with your Junior Sailor(s) – NYC Adult Sail Training can provide the opportunity.

We are running Adult Sailing courses for members and non-members alike to cover the basics, more complex stuff and racing roles.

Benefits of Sailing:

An outdoor, healthy activity – powered by the wind.

A sport for life – for young and old alike, for you or the whole family.

A multi-faceted activity – cruising, day trips, racing, ocean travel.

A great getaway from the office or busy life – even for a few hours.

Courses:

Start Sailing – all the basics you need to be comfortable on a boat (no experience required).

Improve Sailing/Seamanship – the skills you need to be part of a team in medium conditions.

Advanced Sailing/Racing – the skills you need to execute racing roles (helm, trim, pit, foredeck) at a local level.

Dates:

Courses will be run over 4 half days at the weekends (9am-1pm, 2pm-5pm) or selected weekday evenings (5-9pm).  Sailing is weather dependent – so sessions may need to be postponed.
