City Sail is a dynamic four-week summer program introducing urban youth to sailing and swimming. It is New Jersey’s only FREE sailing program, serving middle and high school students from New City Kids: Jersey City.
Our students begin their sailing journey by learning the basics of sailing and taking an introductory swimming course at a local university. They work in small teams over the course of the program, engaging in team-building activities and STEM projects which enhance their sailing and swimming skills.
Students have fun competing in knot-tying contests, testing their sailing vocabulary and knowledge, and becoming competent swimmers. But most importantly, they get out on the water and sail! The program culminates in a Long Island Sound overnight sailing trip for top performers.
