Join a club



Sailors NYC members can enjoy the privilege  of making weekend getaway on board one of our sailboats. A weekend cruise is a great opportunity to explore new horizons out of the New York Harbor, get to know other sailors and of course a great way to exercise and improve navigation and cruising skills. If you are considering to go on a sailing vacation - as a skipper or as crew, a weekend cruise is a great opportunity for you to get acquainted with live-aboard environment and considerations. Get immersed for the weekend and you got yourself a new (healthy) addiction!  


Members who are interested in joining a weekend cruise are invited to a planning meeting that takes place about a month before the cruise. In this meeting we review the nautical charts, tide and current tables and hear other people's ideas and interests. After gathering all the information we put together a rough itinerary to accommodate most (if not all) objectives and assign different preparation tasks, such as: provisioning, research local attractions at the destinations we sail to, obtain weather forecast, plot a route (on paper and electronic charts), prepare the boat etc.
