There’s nothing you can’t do in New York City! This includes “Sailing”! That’s right, North Cove Sailing, located at Brookfield Place, offers sailing lessons for both adults and kids! I had the pleasure last week of taking my daughter out for a guided Press sail around the NY Harbor and we both had a blast.
I strongly believe it’s always best to learn everything you can as a child! This includes things like skiing, swimming, riding a bike and of course “sailing”! KIDSAIL classes are offered all summer long for kids 7-17. A full day or 1/2 day program is available. No sailing experience is needed and from all accounts the kids have an absolute great time at camp learning and sailing.
At KIDSAIL time is split up between classroom learning about the boat and then applying their new skills on the water. Sailing is clearly more complicated than it looks and it’s necessary to master all skills to be safe. All instructors are certified and the program is taught on a fleet of Colgae 26 sailboats.
I can’t image a more awesome adventure for kids growing up in Manhattan than to learn how to sail. This is a skill they will take with them and have for a lifetime. The epic views don’t hurt either as kids sail around their beautiful city and get up close and personal to The Statue of Liberty.
