Hudson River Community Sailing develops leadership and academic success in underserved New York City youth through sailing education and provides maritime education and recreation to the community at large.
Hands down one of the best & most unique experiences I've ever had living in New York for the last 30 years. Being on a small sailboat on the Hudson gave me a whole new perspective on how beautiful Manhattan really is. On top of that, I had never sailed before but found it super relaxing while mentally stimulating at the same time. Very meditative. I recommend this class to everyone I know.
Will was awesome! Really knows his stuff and made it real easy to follow. Greatteacher
Thought the class and instructor were great!
This was a nice intro to sailing and I hugely enjoyed my morning on the Hudson. Very very basic intro but very enjoyable
Excellent teacher and fun, informative experience.
It was a great time to be out on the water, as evening came around and the atmosphere fell into a calmer state. The sailing instructor knew his stuff and gave each of the five of us a chance to be the captain. I'd recommend it to anyone who's interested in sailing on the Hudson. It's a challenging environment because of the variety of experiences you'd have there sailing small craft. Sailing is magic. It really takes you into a new dimension. And it's such a natural business: you, the water, the wind, and your boat.
I think the class was informative and a wonderful intro to sailing.Our skipper, Christopher, was patient, kind and well informed. He seemed ready, able and willing to share his experience with us.
Instructor was fantastic even though I mixed up the times and arrived late. Really fun and informative, hands-on class. Highly recommended
it was great class!
Wonderful !! From beginning to end. I think I may have fallen in love with sailing !
