About your host

I grew up in a small town by the sea in Massachusetts and have been sailing for my whole life. With such experience and knowledge in the sport, I decided to teach sailing 12 years ago. I enjoy escaping the city and finding both tranquility and excitement on the waters of the Hudson.

About Hudson River Community Sailing

HRCS is a community of sailors and educators dedicated to offering affordable lessons to the community at large in the heart of Manhattan. We believe that sailing provides a unique platform for growth and discovery for everyone. Our lessons underwrite our youth development program for public high school students, so you are helping us teach high school students math, science, and leadership!
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Hudson River Community Sailing. .

If the wind and tide are right, we can head south to the Financial District and the harbor, or sail…
