Sample Sailing Flushing Meadow Park

Public Open Sail Day: a free sample sail ride (Appx. 15min. + but sailing time on water to be determined by attendance and wind). -TASCA (The American Small Craft Association)

No hard sole black shoes that could leave scuff marks or open toe saddles for safety. LIFE PRESERVERS WILL BE PROVIDED. There will be light refreshments.

FYI: Since this is not a group lead organized Meet-Up, you can come any time between 10am-3pm with your own group, friends, etc. so everyone does not all show up at 10 in morning at the same time.

This would be great to do as part of a group hike, picnic and/or other event in Flushing Meadows Corona Park or just come out on your own.

(Flushing Meadow Lake is 2 mi. around, add a mile if you walk to Unisphere and back, and by Subway: 1.5 mile walk from E,F,M,R trains at 71st Ave. & Forest Hills. From 7 Train at Mets-Willets Point, 1.4 Mile walk.)

There is a large FREE PARKING lot at the Boathouse as well as other free lots around the park. In the meantime, general info about the TASCA Sailing Program can be found at:

    So everyone, when you get to the gate at the dock entrance, you may see Dragon Boat Festival paddlers practicing at the first canopy to your right. they will use lower ramp. The upper dock further along the Boathouse windows is where TASCA will be set up.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
