$75 for a Three-Hour Intro to Sailing Clinic or a Three-Hour Evening Excursion (a $195 Value)

During the intro to sailing clinic, an experienced instructor teaches students the basics of sailing and supervises students operating the boat, including stopping, tacking, jibing across the wind, and trimming sails. Along the way, groups can catch views of New York City and City Island's tree-lined banks. Intro to sailing clinics usually have up to 4 students per session, and evening excursions usually have to up 5 passengers. The evening sailing excursion launches out into similar waters, but lets passengers choose whether or not they want to operate the boat. Groups can soak in the warm colors of dusk and peer through the ship's mast toward the New York City skyline. See New York Sailing Center's current schedule here.

New York Sailing Center

Just a subway train's throw from Manhattan, City Island seems like a different world—tree-lined banks and sprawling waters that stretch toward the New York City skyline. New York Sailing Center's owner Captain Stephen Glenn Card touts the location for its absence of man-made disturbances such as wind shears and strong currents. Captain Card has taught since the 1980s, and continues to lead multiday immersive-sailing classes for everyone from beginners to advanced cruisers and navigators.

Throughout the years, they have developed a fine-tuned training system that combines in-classroom instruction (including practice with a large, moveable boat) and on-water obstacle courses within City Island Harbor and the Long Island Sound. Atop these waters, students practice on Beneteau sailing boats—twin-rudder vessels that can accommodate beginner's mistakes. As students progress, instructors teach more advanced skills such as racing and navigation. They even take some of their brightest pupils on sailing trips to destinations such as Italy or Captain Hook's retirement home.

Just a subway train's throw from Manhattan, City Island seems like a different world—tree-lined banks and sprawling waters that stretch toward the New York City skyline and out into the open Sound. New York Sailing Center's owner Captain Stephen Glenn Card touts the location for its absence of man-made disturbances such as wind shears and strong currents. Captain Card has taught since the 1980s, and continues to lead multiday immersive-sailing classes for everyone from beginners to advanced cruisers and navigators.

Throughout the years, they have developed a fine-tuned training system that combines in-classroom instruction (including practice with a large, moveable boat) and on-water obstacle courses within Eastchester Bay and Long Island Sound. Atop these waters, students practice on Beneteau sailing boats —twin-rudder vessels that can accommodate beginner's mistakes, and are also the only boats to receive endorsements from a national sail training organization, such as ASA or US Sailing. As students progress, instructors teach more advanced skills such as bareboat cruising and navigation. They even take some of their brightest pupils on sailing trips to destinations such as Italy or Captain Hook's retirement home.
