Give the Gift of Warm Winds to Your Favorite Sailor!

There is one gift that always brings a warm glow to a sailor’s heart: The Gift of Warm Winds from the Croton Sailing School. Each spring we get calls from people who have been kept warm through the frosty winter with the thoughts of starting their spring off right with their Gift of Warm Winds from a thoughtful friend. “It was the best gift of the season,” we hear time and time again. So, for our thoughtful friends and their sailing companions – here is our Gift Guide!

Gifts For The Novice Sailor

Basic Hands-On Plus ($650) is our most popular gift for those who have had a taste of sailing and yearn to sail on their own – or those landlubbers who have yet to touch the tiller. Our Hands-On sailing course will take your friend from novice to certified sailor in just 21 hours! Other ideas for novice sailors are private lessons as an introduction to this great sport or our 12-hour beginning course, Basic Hands-On Sailing ($525).

Gifts For The Skipper

If your gift list includes someone who has already been bitten by the sailing bug then you should consider Basic Coastal Cruising ($625) – our 12 hour course that takes your sailor from day-sailor to auxiliary power and opens up the whole river for them to explore.

If your sailor would like to learn to chart their own course consider Navigation course ($395).

All sailors would love an annual Membership in the Croton Sailing Club which provides a full season of unlimited sailing on the Hudson River.

Memberships available at $625, $1150 or $1550 plus NYS sales tax.
