     It was well organized and the hosts were very hospitable and friendly. Was a nice day and I thank you all. Next time though maybe we should all make an offering to the wind gods.

  • The Greater New York Sailing Group

     The Greater New York Sailing Group gets the sailing season off to a great start with educational programs and also the big "Meet and Greet." AlanCIYC, the organizer, is terrific! The Group runs really smoothly because of Alan's continuing efficiency and attention to detail.

  • The Greater New York Sailing Group

     I think this one is more sailing oriented (funny how that sounds) than the NY Sailing group. Keep up the good work, Alan!

  • The Greater New York Sailing Group

     I learned the basics last summer out at City Island...it was so much fun and I am looking forward to getting involved again this coming summer. Speed Sailing sounds like a great event! 

    Liz on Mar 2, 2011.

  • The Greater New York Sailing Group

     It was nice to see agreat mix of males and females and it is a great opportunity fo those who do not have boats to meet captains who can always use crew members. 

    Kevin on Dec 1, 2010.

  • The Greater New York Sailing Group

     I believe that meeting the skippers and crew personally is far superior than through emails and is the best way to connect with a variety of people to sail with. The connections you make are the measure of our success and we would like to hear of any positive experiences you have had through our group. Post them or email me if you would rather keep them private. We are always open to ideas that will make this fun, get more people to meet others and get on the water. 

    AlanCIYC on Nov 21, 2010.

  • The Greater New York Sailing Group

     I enjoyed meeting and speaking with some of the meet-up members at the Chartering 101 event and I am looking forward to attending future events.

    Jon K. on Mar 23, 2009.

  • The Greater New York Sailing Group

     The group is one of the better ways to actually get on the water, as it's held on an island with numerous yacht clubs and boat yards. The organizer actively plans ways that members can get out sailing. 

    Steve C. on Mar 22, 2009.

  • The Greater New York Sailing Group

     It's a great way to meet friendly people who love sailing. 

    MPbeaches on Jun 12, 2008.

  • The Greater New York Sailing Group

     Good chance to meet people who share the sport; skippers/crew can hook up 

    Al C. on May 2, 2008.

  • The Greater New York Sailing Group

     Even if you only get to an occasional meet-up, the group is a diverse and inspired bunch of like minded sailors, captains, crew and new hopefuls. If you love sailing and even if you only suspect you do, I suggest you join and start sharing the consciousness that will get you out there more often.
