Grand Banks opening Friday

Grand Banks NYC

Weekend on a boat, with oysters!

The wildly popular Oyster Bar on a historic sailing ship is opening this Friday, May 15th. If there's ever a place to relax with incredible sunsets as well as city views, it's Grand Banks while their docked for the summer at Pier 25 in Tribeca. Check out the Grand Banks website for more info.

How are we involved? Atlantic Yachting Owner, Logan Rowell, is proud to serve on the board of Maritime Foundation, owners of the Sherman Zwicker and home to Grand Banks. Maritime Foundation is a NYC based non-profit dedicated to the preservation of historic vessels and other maritime history.

Maritime Foundation's newest preservation project is an 1850's era Oyster Barge that was in imminent danger of destruction. Check out the great New York Times piece on the Oyster Barge.

So if you can't join us for a Sailboat Charter or a Sailing Lesson, at least go grab a drink on a sailboat. And don't forget, if you want to arrive at Grand Bank in style, we can do that for you.

See you out there.

Students Sail To Galapagos

Congrats to the SV Oceanna!

If you follow the blog you have read about Atlantic Yachting Sailing School grads Greg and Kaycee. These two Canadians traded frozen careers in the arctic circle for a 41 foot catamaran. Only one catch....they'd never sailed before.

After an incredible amount of hard work on their parts cleaning up and prepping Oceanna, and some intense Private Lessons with Atlantic Yachting, they were off the horizon. It's only been a little more than a year since they sailed away from us, and they just sailed into the Galapagos. Incredible! They've battles the Gulf Stream currents, cruised the Bahamas, made landfall in South America, crossed the Panama Canal, passed over the Equator, and now they're in the Galapagos exploring it's untouched beauty before crossing the Pacific. We got word via satellite of Stand Up Paddleboarding across the Equator beside the boat and some other wild stories.

Atlantic Yachting + Apiece Apart + = Awesome!

What an awesome day!

Film and TV shoots are always fun. But when they want the boat charging full sail and request to head up the Hudson River into Palisades, you know it's going to be a good day. Weather and lighting were particularly important for this shoot and everything was actually moved forward a day to bring the perfect elements together. Luckily the film crew could adjust their schedules and Gemini had a few holes in her calendar that day as well. Captains Jonathan and Dave were aboard Gemini working with the film crew and models while Logan was on the chase boat with the producer. Can't say enough about how great Apiece Apart was to work with and their clothes are super cool as well. Check out their full Spring 2015 collection HERE and see more of Video Fashion Week HERE.


Check Out Kiesza Sailing With Atlantic Yachting

Kiesza rocks. And she loves sailing.

It was a blast to have Kiesza out sailing with us on NYC's Hudson River this summer. Here is the Vevo edit from her outing with Atlantic Yachting. She talks about her love for sailing and how it started with sailing camp (hint hint parents). We wish her huge success in the music industry (she's kinda already there) and hope to sail again with her soon. Kiesza Sailing in NYC

Max on Yelp said:

My boss bought an afternoon charter for my team, and it was fantastic. The captain and crew were knowledgeable and accommodating. They let us be as hands-on and hands-off as we wanted. The boat was a relatively new, 43' Beneteau with a nice cockpit to gather in.

Perfect Tripadvisor Review for Lessons

Compound7 on Tripadvisor said:

This is a unique way to get outside, and away from the crowds in NYC. If you enjoy being on the water, there is the option to take sailing lessons, or charter a boat. We took private lessons and really enjoyed Jonathon, our instructor for both days. It was great sailing on the Hudson, with views of the Empire State building, and the rest of the New York skyline in the background. Highly recommend this!

I couldn't have asked for a better crew for our Mother's Day ride on the Hudson - they were very attentive, respectful and fun to sail with. I'll definitely sail with them again!

SkipperDavo from Australia on Tripadvisor said:

This was definitely a highlight of our trip. We elected the 3 hour sail departing at 7pm during summer. The crew were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The 3 hour sail at this time was perfect as we got to watch the sunset behind the Statue of Liberty and then watch the new york skyline come to light as we sailed back to the marina. You can BYO food and alcohol which is excellent. Sure I guess its pricey but for what you get but the experience it is worth it. Maximum of 6 people per sail. Just perfect, a must do when in New York.
