    Overview

    City Sail provides students in grades 5-11 the opportunity to learn to sail a 24-foot boat, to become a better leader and team player, and to make new friends. Students spend a week as a small crew learning to steer, navigate, control the sails, and calculate speed.

    Beyond simply learning to sail, students develop leadership, teamwork, communication, and craftsmanship. They also learn about the Hudson River and its marine environment.  Most importantly they learn about themselves. Many schools offer physical education credits for completing this program.
