Captain Sean Wentworth, general manager of Atlantic Yachting, dodged this seasons first tropical storm off the coast of Georgia on a delivery of a new Beneteau 473 sloop from Charleston to New York City. Sean battled the after effects of the storm the entire trip and at one point off the coast of New Jersey reached a speed of 15.6 knots under sail.

American Sailing Association IQC a big success

Six instructor candidates participated in an ASA Coastal Cruising and Bareboat Preparation instructor qualification clinic yesterday aboard our Beneteau at the Boat Basin. It was a light wind day with the ever swift currents of the Hudson giving us a chance to practice some difficult docking maneuvers. All six candidates successfully passed and will be awarded ASA instructor qualifications up to the ASA 104 level. Congratulations to all!

Become a Sailing Instructor - ASA Instructor Qualification Clinic

True North Sailing will host an ASA Instructor Clinic from April 28-May 1, 2007.  For anyone wishing to obtain or upgrade ASA instructor qualifications, four (4) levels of certification will be offered: Basic Keelboat Instructor, Basic Coastal Cruising Instructor, Coastal Navigation Instructor & Bareboat Chartering Instructor.

For those interested in obtaining a USCG captain's license, the clinic will also qualify candidates for Limited versions of both the OUPV ("six pack") and the 100 ton Master.

The clinic is priced very reasonably: $250 for Basic Keelboat Instructor, $150 for Basic Coastal Cruising Instructor + Coastal Navigation Instructor combined and $150 for Bareboat Chartering Instructor.

Please note that while candidates will learn an enormous amount during the clinic, it's primary purpose to evaluate a candidate's potential as a sailing instructor. IQCs are meant for more advanced sailors, and candidates must be confident in their abilities to sail a J24 single-handed, including anchoring and/or docking under sail.
We hope to fill the clinic and see a lot of great sailors become great instructors this summer.

Affordable Charter Yacht, Friendly and Affable Crew

Nub on CitySearch says:

My friends and I chartered a sail boat for my bachelor party on a saturday evening, and these guys were laid-back, non-corporate, and affordable. We were allowed to bring our alcohol and food, and just play around as we liked. The 6 of us had a great time, and the price of $395 for two hours can't be beat. The crew were great.

Best Day Camp in Manhattan!

JB on CitySearch says:

Signed my son up for the Atlantic Yachting Association's NYC Summer Sailing Camp last summer and he had an absolute blast... He's definitely hooked on sailing now and spends his days reading Sailing Magazine and sailing books. We've already signed up for next year (two sessions). These guys are super nice and very accomodating.

So Nice!!!

Katie on CitySearch says:

I took a sailing lesson last summer and it was so NICE !! The instructor made everything really easy to understand and never got frustrated when I didn't understand. By the end of the day I was sailing the boat myself, something I've always wanted to do! Such a good feeling....

Best Sailing in New York

Alex on CitySearch says:

I took my girlfriend sailing for her birthday and it couldn't have been better. We sailed down the Hudson to the Statue of Liberty, took in the view, relaxed in the sun, had some wine, and played our own soundtrack. The crew were professional, friendly and easy going. I'm planning on taking my parents out when they come in town. I highly recommend a trip with these guys.
