Sail all season with the Croton Sailing Club

Ahhh, the location!

Croton Sailing School’s site on the Hudson River offers 18 square miles of wide open scenic sailing, yet is less than an hour from Manhattan by car or train. Our unique setting offers the area’s best sailing conditions matched with unparalled majestic scenery. Enjoy 360-degree views of the Croton-on-Hudson waterfront, historic Croton Point Park, the dramatic Palisades Parklands and the entrance to the Hudson Highlands. Haverstraw Bay is bordered to the west by the town and village of Haverstraw and to the east by the northern portion of the town of Ossining, village of Croton-on-Hudson and the southern portion of the town of Cortlandt. Haverstraw Bay is approximately 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the north of New York City.
