If you can't change the direction of the wind - adjust your sails!
Ever since its inception in 2013, Sailors NYC strived to build a community of sailors which not only benefits itself, but also its community at large.
This vision led to transitioning Sailors NYC - a for profit sailors club into Sailors Jersey City - a non profit* that will offer year round sailing programs for Jersey City inner city teens and recreational sailing for adults.
We are currently working on putting together our programs, our team and our funding in place, and hoping to (re) launch next year.
* CRC Foundation Inc. DBA Sailors Jersey City is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and contributions are tax-deductible for income, gift, and estate taxes. Our EIN is 81-2548915.
