Hudson River Community Sailing

Preparing students to succeed in the classroom, on the water, and beyond.

Our Story


Hudson River Community Sailing was founded in 2007 as a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization to provide experiential learning to underserved New York City youth through sailing and marine education.

We partner with public middle and high schools to offer credit-bearing academic programs, internships, mentoring, and college readiness. Our youth development platform uses sailing, boat operation, and boat building to further academic skills and instill the qualities of character necessary for college and career success. We also serve the broader community through affordable marine education and recreation for individuals, groups, schools, businesses, and families.

Our mission is to develop leadership and academic success in underserved New York City youth through sailing education and provides maritime education and recreation to the community at large.
