Frozen lakes, snowy hills, and warm ocean waves are transformed into arenas over which to slip and slide, thanks to the experienced instructors at Kite Club NY.

My passion for sailing started when my parents enrolled me in sailing camp at age nine. After being involved with all aspects of sailing for twenty years, both on the race course and exploring different sailing destinations, I decided to turn my passion for sailing into a business. Now I help others discover how much fun sailing can be.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Sailing isn't just for the rich and famous. In fact, the vast majority of sailors lie on the other side of the spectrum. Sailing can complement any budget, and you can even enjoy it without owning your own boat. Also, there aren't many activities that you can pursue from age 5 to 80?but sailing is one of them. It's also an activity that you can share with friends and family while making memories to last a lifetime. That's why many sailors say that "a bad day on the water sailing still beats a good day at the office."
Armed with extensive training and an in-depth understanding of the Canon brand’s cameras and optical advances since 1973, stalwart instructors unveil the inner workings of DSLRs for new photographers of all ages.

To complement the hands-on instruction, teachers also answer any questions to further prepare attendees for varied camera use.
