What we're about

With new sailing adventures on the horizon, Gotham Yacht Club is looking for new, fun sailors and non-sailors to join us on our boating day trips this season!

We like to fill the boat up with about 20-30 people. No sailing experience is required. The crew is made up of young, well-educated, and well-mannered Manhattan professionals. We are looking to meet new people who will enjoy the atmosphere and company of everyone on the boat.

Gotham Yacht Club takes trips around the Manhattan area in a 50-foot Beneteau. We usually sail the Hudson - the Statue of Liberty to the the George Washington Bridge - but also go to Martha's Vineyard, the Hamptons and the Jersey Shore.

Please note that there is often less available space than it may appear there is. This is because we have veteran sailors/members who are not part of the Meetup group but still regularly attend our trips and thus have priority. These sailors are often crew members who help man the boat and are vital to a sail's success. In order to ensure that we do not overbook the boat, and ultimately disappoint our community, our general Meetup protocol is to first create a wait list for our events before we directly allow members to RSVP.Adding people to the waitlist rather than having them RSVP "yes" is our way of seeing who to contact next while simultaneously ensuring that no one gets their hopes up with the security of a "yes."

If you and/or your friends are interested, please copy, paste, and fill out the questionnaire below in an email and send to nyharboryacht@yahoo.com. Please include your current email address so that we are able to contact you with invitations.
