SailNY, a non-profit association has brought affordable, public access sailing to New York Harbor since 1996.
With our fleet of five 27-foot Solings for racing and teaching, two cruisers and two safety boats, SailNY offers a full program of sail training and racing, as well as recreational sailing.
2013-4 Frostbite Racing Series will begin on Sunday, 10 November 2013, at 10 a.m. with an overview of the Racing Rules of Sailing and suggestions for the start of a race. We shall practice starting after lunch. The series of at least 10 race days will begin on Sunday, 17 November 2013. Click for an application.
Recreational sailing is open to any member who is a skipper at any time. Non-skippers can sail with skippers whenever available, but we try to have skippers on board on Wednesday evenings and on weekends. The season will begin again mid-April 2014.
