Crew Memberships

Join as a Crew member and you'll be sailing on the newest and largest fleet in the city. Members have access to weekly racing, on-water clinics and year-round educational workshops. Crew members build skills to grow as sailors and work toward becoming HRCS-certified Skippers. All skill levels welcome. No previous sailing experience required.

Full Crew
All sails included in membership fee. Sail from Chelsea and Inwood. Sign up to join a scheduled skippered boat and build skills and confidence on the water.

Lower membership fee and additional per-sail fee. Sail from Chelsea and Inwood. Sign up to join a scheduled skippered boat.

Inwood Only
Enjoy the benefits of membership while sailing exclusively from HRCS's Dyckman Street Marina location in Inwood. Sail Thursday-Sunday.

Become a Skipper Member:
Crew members who meet HRCS certification requirements are eligible to be Skippers. Skippers can schedule a sail and take out Crew whenever a boat is available. Along with scheduling flexibility, Skippers receive credit toward their next renewal for every Crew member they take sailing and have opportunities to reserve a private boat. Skippers who sail frequently can earn enough credit to renew for free!
