What you'll learn in this sailing lesson:

Students attending this class will feel the warm breeze in their hair and be awed by the brilliant colors of an NYC sunset as it sets behind the hills of New Jersey.

Watch the city wind down from a new perspective. This can be a mini-lesson for those looking to learn or a relaxing way to kick back and relax its up to you. There is no better way to relax than skimming along the smooth water on a graceful and quiet sailboat at sunset.

Refund & Cancellation Policy

For all lessons, not including City Sail: 
To reschedule a lesson with more than 48 hours forenotice, there's a $25 late rescheduling fee. Lessons rescheduled within 48 hours of the lesson time will incur a fee equal to the price of the lesson. Full refunds are only given in extreme cases on a case by case basis.

Best class for a sunny summer day! The instructor was very knowledgeable and was great at getting a grasp of group dynamics and helping us get the most out of our experience. My group had students at different levels including some Hudson River Community Sailing members and while I was the only 100% newbie to sailing I felt that I was a contributing member of the crew without feeling pushed to do more than I was willing and able to do. It was amazing, highly recommend it!
