There are many ways to set sail in Hudson River Park! Whether you’re interested in taking sailing lessons for the first time, or you’ve been sailing for years, Hudson River Park provides opportunities to get on the water. Treat yourself or your favorite child to sailing lessons at any level on the spectacular Hudson River waterway.

Hudson River Community Sailing, right in the heart of Chelsea, runs an after-school Youth Development Program and a Community Sailing school that offers lessons, excursions and a sailing club membership. Sailing lessons, a summer camp for youth, weekly racing and a variety of corporate and community events are all available from the Park’s Pier 66 Boathouse.

The unique flagship youth development program called “Sail Academy” also takes place at this location, serving nine public high schools nearby. Through Sail Academy, Hudson River Community Sailing helps students earn academic credit in physical education, math and science as they learn to sail, navigate, construct small wooden boats and study the marine environment.
