Oakcliff Partners with Sailors NYC to Promote Summer Sailing


OYSTER BAY, NEW YORK (April 5, 2016) – In a cross promotion, Oakcliff invites Sailor NYC members to sail in Oakcliff’s Dream Yacht Charter Series on Wednesday, May 18. Once in Oyster Bay members will be introduced to racing onboard a Match 40 and will be coached through the whole experience.

In a continuation of cooperation, Sailors NYC invites Oakcliff Supporters to enjoy sailing in one of the busiest but most spectacular harbors in the world, New York Harbor! Supporters can enjoy relaxed recreational sailing on the Hudson River onboard Sailor NYC’s lovely 30 foot cruising boats. Sails are offered between May 15-June 30 2016, weeknights 6-9pm and weekends 12-3pm.

Sailors NYC is a leading recreational sailors club supported by its members, partners and the community. The club is a warm and welcoming place for sailors at all levels to improve their skills and enjoy the camaraderie and companionship of other members. It is New York’s only recreational sailor’s club with mid-sized boats. All vessels have galleys, bathrooms and coolers so members can host guests and take weekend trips in comfort. Sailors NYC also offers a variety of sailing vacations in spectacular settings throughout the world. Classes, a Meetup group and other social events are held for members and their guests year-round.

Oakcliff Sailing located in Oyster Bay, New York is the only complete sail training and coaching center in the world. Oakcliff’s America’s Cup style campus, with a new 40-person dormitory, creates complete sailors who are capable of sailing in any position, fixing every aspect of a boat, and managing a small marine business. Oakcliff trains sailors in match and fleet racing, inshore and offshore, fully crewed and short handed, as well as providing access to historically significant classic yachts. Each sailor leaves Oakcliff a leader with comprehensive skills and the benefits of an organization that boasts a nearly perfect industry job placement.
