SOUL Sailing has partnered with Harlem Yacht Club to offer sailing lessons and ASA certified courses for sailors of all experience levels from their beautiful location on City Island.

The Harlem Yacht Club, founded in 1883, is one of the oldest yacht clubs in the United States. With a full complement of activities for both boating and social members, HYC has something to offer everyone.

From their location at the western end of Long Island Sound, they have access to the best cruising in the region. You could spend a lifetime exploring the hundreds of harbors and anchorages within the protected perimeter of the Sound. For a longer trip, head out to Block Island, the Vineyard, Nantucket, and the New England coast.  In the other direction, it’s just a short hop to New York Harbor from where you can explore the Hudson Valley or reach the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean.  They maintain reciprocal relationships with many clubs around the country, so wherever you go, you’ll find a warm welcome and a home away from home.

All HYC members receive discounted rates on lessons and courses. For more information on HYC, visit or email
