Sailors NYC club is a warm and welcoming community for sailors at all levels to improve their skills and enjoy the camaraderie and companionship of other members. It is New York’s best recreational sailor’s club with mid-sized boats. All vessels have galleys, bathrooms and coolers so members can host guests and take weekend trips in comfort.

Sailors NYC provides recreational sailing to sailors – both boat and non-boat owners. The club’s boats are moored during the sailing season in Hudson River Park’s Pier 25 at the beautiful, lively in Tribeca. To create a true club environment, we provide a variety of programs for all levels of sailors, including: cruising, racing, organized boating events, as well as social events and educational programs. Whether you are already certified or would like to become certified, Sailors NYC provides you with classes and courses to improve and expand your sailing skills.
