Appalachian Mountain Club


The Chapter’s sailing program offers numerous sails with skippers who teach sailing on a chartered small day sailer or a cruiser. While most of our training is done on Long Island Sound, we have recently expanded our training and outings to the Hudson River beginning in the Spring of 2020.

Some of us sail solo in “Sunfish” type boats, which we teach at the Chapter Fire Island Facility.

Chapter members also have the opportunity to either crew on larger boats sailing out of Ossining, or training others in the art and science of sailing on their own boats.

For information about sailing at Fire Island, contact the Fire Island Committee. For more information about the sailing program contact the Sailing Committee Chair, Richard Weinberg.
