Scholarships Available

Hudson River Community Sailing strives to serve a diverse student body. We offer scholarships to families with documented need through the Hollis Salzman and David Barry Memorial Scholarship Fund. This fund honors the lasting impact former HRCS Board Member Hollis Salzman and her husband David have on our community. Hollis and David were dedicated to the education of youth in our city, and believed all NYC young people could benefit from sailing.

“I can’t tell you how much this means to me… as a single working parent, to know that every day with City Sail my teenager is involved in something meaningful to him in a beautiful setting on the Hudson. He’s excited, learning, relaxing (all too rare for a city kid), and, most important, he’s engaged."
