I am a student at Sailing Academy. I started the Sailing Academy this year. I have learned a lot about sailing. I love sailing a boat. I love going on trips, see sights, and meet new people. I can't wait to learn how to build a boat during the winter and sailing it in the spring! Oh! and we have great instructors! They are funny, friendly, helpful, skillful, and smart. Thank you for teaching me how to sail!

My son is in the Sail Academy and this organization delivers an incredibly valuable service to the students in the program. Not only does he have the opportunity to sail on the Hudson River every week (my husband and I are very jealous), but he's also gaining tangible knowledge in math, science and ecology as well as intangible but equally valuable skills like teamwork and leadership. The instructors are all friendly and skilled. I've already begun to see growth in our son in these areas - all while he's having fun and being outdoors!

My son started sailing with HRCS 3 years ago when he started grade 9. What an amazing opportunity for a nyc kid to learn to sail, twice a week, out on the hudsen river. He has grown tremendously with this program, learning leadership skills, math and physics as it relates to sailing. During his 1st year in the program the kids designed and built a one man boat. The staff are incredible role models!! They are well educated, young and make the program fun. My son used to show up in snowstorms for his 2, 3 hour sessions a week. I can't say enough about this wonderful organization. There are not many free after school options in New York City, and this one reaches kids from all walks of life! I am hoping that my son will graduate from HRCH next year with a captains license, and he is talking about studying marine architecture in college.
