ABOUT US

Our Vision

North Cove Sailing aims to be the leader in sailing on the Hudson River. Our values are founded on access and inclusion, so we aim to provide the best value and opportunities to get more NYC residents on the water. We have simply the best location for sailing in Manhattan — with beautiful sites like the Statue of Liberty and the NYC skyline that can only be seen at sea! See how we are stacking up against this year’s goals of 150 club members, 300 free sails, and 3000 people sailing:

The Fleet & Facilities

Our Fleet

Our fleet is comprised of twelve Colgate 26 training and racing keelboats. These sailboats are the same vessels that the US Naval Academy uses to train and race on, as they are very safe and performance-oriented boats.

The Colgate 26 fits six adults comfortably, and is equipped with a tiller, symmetric spinnaker and pole. With support vessels and shoreside facilities, we have the ability to host events of up to 60 guests.

New York, NY

Our Facilities

Our facilities are located in the heart of Manhattan, with great sights like the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island just a short sail away.

We have both shoreside (300 Vesey Street) and dockside (North Cove Marina) facilities to provide the best atmosphere for club, teaching and community activities. As part of the Brookfield Place complex, North Cove Sailing has great access to unparalleled shopping and eating — all easily accessible by ferry, PATH and subway.
