About City Sail

City Sail opens the Hudson river to Jersey City youth through a free five-week sailing and swimming program. Youth learn the basics of sailing on the Hudson river and take an introductory course in swimming technique at a local university. Youth compete to earn prizes along the way by learning to tie knots, passing tests on sailing terminology, and using real-life sailing skills on the water. The program culminates in a three-day sailing trip on Long Island Sound at the end of the summer.
