Sound Sailing Center Partners With Harlem Yacht Club

Dear Members and Friends,
I am thrilled to share the news with our Members that Sound Sailing Center is partnering with Harlem Yacht Club on City Island, New York. It has been in the works since the Spring and I am happy to say that on Sunday, August 10th I will be sailing Courageous this weekend to HYC for our SSC Members to use. SSC Members will also have access to HYC facilities including the Restaurant, Bar, Showers, etc. as well as HYC Events and Activities. Harlem Yacht Club was founded in 1863 and is one of the oldest Yacht Clubs in the United States. It is a wonderful Club providing a great area to sail. I hope that all of our Members avail themselves of this incredible opportunity to expand their sailing world and meet new sailors at HYC. To welcome SSC Members, HYC is hosting a Wine & Cheese Open House this Sunday, August 10 from 1 pm to 3 pm. Please join us at HYC and tour the beautiful facilities that Harlem Yacht Club has to offer. for more information on this storied yacht club.
Due to Popular Demand, Teddie has created an “SSC Members Board” on the SSC website. We are listing members who are looking for other members to sail with or looking for crew. Please contact Teddie for more information and to get your contact information listed.
Our classes are filling up for the rest of the season as well. If you would like to improve your sailing skills to prepare for a Winter Charter Cruise in the Islands or get your spouse into a class to find her passion for sailing (and to help you crew) – sign up on our website at “Instruction”. Teddie has also been scheduling weekday classes for all levels, if you would like to take a “sailcation” from work this Summer, please contact her.
The Dories Camp is bigger and better than ever. Kelly and Peter are doing a fabulous job with the kids. The little sailors are coming up from the dock everyday laughing and soaking wet! Sign your kids up to join in the fun. We have camp sessions until the last week of August and we still have some spots available. You get a 10% discount on Camp with your Membership.
Happy Sailing!

Summer Camp in Full Swing

Dories Camp 
We had more smiling faces at our Sailing Camp this morning. The kids had a great time out on the water with our new instructor Kelly Weigold. Kelly ran the Nantucket Community Sailing Camp last year and we are lucky to have her teaching our Summer Camp this year. We still have some spots available in future weeks, we even have a camp the last week of August — after most camps have closed – if you’d like to sign your children up.
