Sailing for Scholars Gala / The Model Room at The New York Yacht Club

October 18, 2023

Sailing for Scholars is Hudson River Community Sailing's annual fundraising gala to support STEM and leadership development for NYC public school students and provide maritime access to New Yorkers of all abilities. This year’s event will be held at the New York Yacht Club and includes a silent auction, special guests, and other surprises. The fun continues on Saturday and Sunday as teams race in a two-day regatta. Your support will help HRCS strengthen its foundation and build for the future.

Join us for a great weekend supporting a great cause!

Sailing for Scholars Regatta / Dyckman Marina, Inwood

October 21-22, 2023

With racing all weekend long, teams compete both on the water and to raise the most money in support of Hudson River Community Sailing's innovative youth development and maritime access programs. Winners are announced at a post-event reception at The Hudson. Donate below to support your favorite team or racer! Not sure which team to support? HRCS's youth racing team, the Sea Dragons, is looking strong this year!

Interested in fielding a team? Teams sign up to raise $5,000 (J/24) or $10,000 (J/80), get professional coaching, and compete in the two-day regatta. Contact Maeve Gately at for more information.
