NYC Day/Weekend Sailing

Hello! My fiance and I just moved to NYC from Buffalo. We are interested in day sailing (just me - as my unlucky fiance Bryan has to work during the week) and/or weekend sailing (both of us). We are excited about getting out on the water, learning the NYC waterways, getting some ocean experience, and most importantly meeting other sailors!

A little background: My fiance Bryan is 31 and I am 29. We own a 20ft sailboat (Whimsy) that hopefully will be coming down from Buffalo sometime soon. Both of us also raced for two years with the Buffalo Harbor Sailing Club on a 32 foot ketch. We're looking to join a sailing club here as well but haven't decided which one yet. Recommendations welcome! This past winter, we took a one week sailing course in Florida on a 52 ft Dufour, completing our ASA certifications 101-104. In Sept. 2014 we are chartering our first boat in Greece for our honeymoon!

Please let me know if you need crew or are looking for some sailing buddies! We would love to get out on the water here!

Re: NYC Day/Weekend Sailing

Check out the Manhattan Yacht Club (aka Manhattan Sailing School?) out of North Cove in Battery Park City. I think they also sail out of the Chelsea Piers, mainly J/24s.

Your fiancÚ might even be able to get in some weekday after-work sailing that way.

Re: NYC Day/Weekend Sailing

If you don't mind the drive to the north chesapeake, I have a beautiful Condor-40 tri that I solo sail. Always welcome some extra hands aboard and share the fun. It could be an overnighter to make the drive worth it for both of you but just to caution you JAZ is a racer, not a cruiser, so accommodations are close quarters. Shoot me an email to

Re: NYC Day/Weekend Sailing

Welcome to the City. I sail my CD 25D out of Jamaica Bay several times a week and the occasional weekend. It's a pretty funky boatyard in Brooklyn, no sailing club, bar or much else. Just a friendly, cheap place to keep the boat and do as much work on it as you care to. You can reach me by adding aol dot com to my screen name. I'm planning a Tuesday sail if the weather holds.
