Refund Policy
For all lessons, not including City Sail: 
To reschedule a lesson with more than 48 hours fore notice, there's a $25 late rescheduling fee. To cancel a lesson or excursion with more than 48 hours fore notice, there's a $25 per person cancellation fee. The 48 hours must be prior to the day on which the sail starts. Lessons rescheduled within 48 hours of the lesson time will incur a fee equal to the price of the lesson. Full refunds are only given in extreme cases on a case by case basis. 

City Sail Cancellation and Rescheduling: 
  1. Rescheduling - A session may be rescheduled prior to 14 days before the start date of the session for a $25 fee per child per session.

Weather 
  1. Only HRCS can cancel a lesson for weather-related reasons. 
  2. If a lesson is cancelled, HRCS will contact the participants using phone/email in order to notify them and reschedule the lesson. 
  3. Lessons are cancelled if the conditions are deemed unsafe by HRCS. Examples of these conditions are imminent lightning/thunder that will hit our sailing area and winds sustained at 20 knots with gusts above that speed. Rain, cloudiness, and uncomfortable temperatures do not constitute unsafe conditions unless deemed so by an HRCS representative - dress appropriately!
City Sail Program

Intro to Sailing: Inwood
Reviewed by Anonymous on 11/16/2018
Hands down one of the best & most unique experiences I've ever had living in New York for the last 30 years. Being on a small sailboat on the Hudson gave me a whole new perspective on how beautiful Manhattan really is. On top of that, I had never sailed before but found it super relaxing while mentally stimulating at the same time. Very meditative. I recommend this class to everyone I know.

Reviewed by Jeanne V. on 7/10/2017
The Intro To Sailing was a very pleasurable experience for a semi-experienced sailor like myself, who was really craving some time out on the water. The skipper and first mate - Rebecca and Sasha - were super nice, friendly and fun. But this was more like a brief excursion than an actual class. True, Rebecca gave every attendee a shot at manning the tiller and we were all free to participate in trimming the sails. I had a good time but I didn't feel I learned anything, except that the Hudson River Community Sailing club exists and has locations there in Inwood and at Chelsea Piers and that anyone can join and there are requirements vis-a-vis sailing skill to become a skipper who may take out a boat.

Had a great time with down to earth people, skilled instructor and great view. Highly recommended for anyone who is looking for a low key and simple intro into sailing.
