Learn to Sail

Stuyvesant Yacht Club is pleased to announce our sailing school in residence, headed by the wonderful Steve Card. Steve has been teaching sailing and guiding sailing trips for many years. Please see his website, www.startsailing.com, for details, and follow him on Facebook.

Club Boat

This program allows you access to a boat, but without the responsibility of ownership. Perhaps you are keen to gain experience or are between boats. Maybe you'd just like to meet and sail with new companions. Whatever the reason, this is an attractive option at a nominal cost.

Kayaking / Dry Sailing

There are many options with boats large and small. Want a little more contact with the water and some cardio workout? Kayaking is the real deal on a hot summer day. Kayak storage is available for Associate Members. For those drysailing aficionados, our travel lift can accommodate.


Stuyvesant Yacht Club Restaurant Our restaurant is great place to enjoy good fresh cuisine in our dining room or have a drink at our nautical themed bar while enjoying panoramic views overlooking Eastchester Bay and New York City’s Skyline. And you are in for a treat with some of the best sunsets. During the warmer weather you can enjoy eating or having a drink on our deck area.
