Now more than ever, young people need opportunities for hands-on learning, outdoor activities, and academic and emotional support. Which is why HRCS added four partner schools to our Sail Academy programs this fall!

The pandemic is heightening isolation for many New Yorkers, especially those with disabilities. HRCS is proud of its successful pilot year of adaptive sailing, providing access to the water for youth and adults with disabilities.

Through a significantly expanded internship program, HRCS is giving more students than ever meaningful work experience and needed income.

HRCS served a record number of members and increased the participation of veterans and City Sail campers.

Our sails remained full thanks to our talented volunteers and generous supporters.

WNBC joined Sail Academy's Fall Expedition for this great feature on HRCS's transformative youth development program. Hear from students and staff on the program's impact: teaching New York City public school students STEM and leadership skills while breaking the traditional barriers that limit access to sailing and the waterfront.

IF you have it in your heart to support youth sailing, especially those with disabilities, please consider contributing to HRCS's wonderful program. For more Hudson River Community Sailing program information, click here.
