What you'll learn in this sailing lesson:

City Sail is our week-long sailing summer camp. Escape the heat and noise of the city and enjoy the Hudson River. Drive the boat, meet kids like you, and learn cool skills to impress your friends and family. Go fast and measure your boat speed. Accelerate through the water and learn what lives in the water. On the boat, you will work in small groups - no more than 5 per instructor.

Some have never sailed and some have sailed for years. No boating or swimming experience is required.

Typical Day Schedule:

9 am - Morning Lesson/Activity
10 am - Morning Sailing Session
12 pm - Lunch + games in the park
1 pm - Afternoon Sailing Session
3 pm - Group Debriefing/Wrap up activity
4 pm - End of the day


FAQs

Q: Is each week the same? Will my child just be learning/experiencing the same thing twice?
A:
While some activities are repeated each week in order to develop students skills through repetition (and because we think they are effective), each week truly does offer a whole new set of experiences. To give an example, the weekly trip alternates each week between southbound (NY Harbor, Statue of Liberty) and northbound (Palisades, George Washington Bridge).

Q: What do you do if there is bad weather?
A:
We never cancel City Sail for bad weather. We will not go on the water if dangerous conditions exist (sustained winds above 20 knots or imminent lightning/thunder), but we will still do land-based activities until conditions improve.

Refund Policy
For all lessons, not including City Sail: 
To reschedule a lesson with more than 48 hours fore notice, there's a $25 late rescheduling fee. To cancel a lesson or excursion with more than 48 hours fore notice, there's a $25 per person cancellation fee. The 48 hours must be prior to the day on which the sail starts. Lessons rescheduled within 48 hours of the lesson time will incur a fee equal to the price of the lesson. Full refunds are only given in extreme cases on a case by case basis. 

City Sail Cancellation and Rescheduling: 
  1. Rescheduling - A session may be rescheduled prior to 14 days before the start date of the session for a $25 fee per child per session. 
  2. Cancellation - A session may be cancelled and full refund received prior to 30 days before the start date of the session. 
Weather 
  1. Only HRCS can cancel a lesson for weather-related reasons. 
  2. If a lesson is cancelled, HRCS will contact the participants using phone/email in order to notify them and reschedule the lesson. 
  3. Lessons are cancelled if the conditions are deemed unsafe by HRCS. Examples of these conditions are imminent lightning/thunder that will hit our sailing area and winds sustained at 20 knots with gusts above that speed. Rain, cloudiness, and uncomfortable temperatures do not constitute unsafe conditions unless deemed so by an HRCS representative - dress appropriately!
City Sail Program 
Due to limited staff availability there will be no make-ups offered and no price pro-rating.
