About the host:
Sailors NYC is a sailors club, sailing school and international sailing vacations company, a community of sailors on the Hudson River in Jersey City.
We create a warm and welcoming community for sailors at all levels to improve their skills and enjoy the camaraderie and companionship of other members. Most of our members do not own yachts and choose to become members in order to sail the club’s vessels. Members are free to sail at their convenience and according to club policies and can reserve private sails, group and recreational sails from Manhattan and New Jersey quickly and easily online or by phone. Sailors NYC offers a variety of sailing vacations in spectacular settings throughout the world, and classes, a Meetup group and other social events are held for members and their guests year-round.
