The Team

His sailing adventures were launched on the coast of a sleepy fishing village off the southeast of Puerto Rico.

Most recently he launched and managed The Moorings Yacht Company’s, Puerto Rico Base and is now pleased to return to North Cove after several years in the Caribbean.


Rebecca Behr

Community Sailing Coordinator

Rebecca grew up waterskiing on lakes in the midwest but she converted to sailing on the New York Harbor as an escape from corporate life.  Three years ago she gave up life behind a desk for life on the water.   Rebecca has taught sailing to youth and adults while also administering sailing programs to improve New Yorkers access to the water.  When not sailing in the harbor, Rebecca is delivering sailboats to points on the east coast, or sailing on the Solent.  Rebecca is a US Sailing Basic Keelboat Instructor and has a US Coast Guard 25 ton Masters license.

The Fleet & Facilities

Fleet Picture North Cove

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.
