The Nyack Boat Club is a member-owned and operated sailing club, with programs and facilities available to its members and their guests. As noted below, we have two kinds of membership; General which is a full membership, and Seasonal Membership for Special Activities, including two programs for adults (Ideal 18 Sailing and Sunset Sailing) and our program for children (Junior Sailing).  If you're considering either General or Season membership, we'd love to hear from you. Here's how: 

  1. Click on 'CONTACT' and fill out the form with your personal information including email, telephone, and address.
  2. In the pull down menu 'Category' select a category based on your interest (Sailing for Children, Sailing for Adults, Sailing for Boat Owners, etc.).  If you're not yet sure, or have many interest, you may choose General Inquiry.  
  3. In the 'Subject' line, in a few words give us an overview of where your interests lie.
  4. In the 'Message' line please provide us with a bit more information including how you heard of us, past sailing experience if any, type of boat you own or wish to own, interest in racing, or what ever you feel would help explain what you are looking for in a sailing club.
